Scouting Report
The consensus No. 2 receiver in this year's draft behind Georgia's A.J. Green, Jones made a bid to surpass Green atop teams' draft boards with an electric performance at the NFL combine. He led all wideouts with an 11-foot, 3-inch broad jump, placed fifth at his position in the 60-yard shuttle and ran a blazing 4.39-second 40-yard dash - good enough for third. The following day, it was revealed that Jones accomplished all that despite working out with a broken foot. Rehab is expected to take eight weeks, meaning he should easily be ready for training camp. On the other hand, Michael Crabtree experienced a similar injury in 2009, and went on to play in only 11 games as a rookie for San Francisco. Jones has great size, which coupled with his elite speed could make him a receiver who can leap up to make catches in the NFL in the mold of a Larry Fitzgerald or Randy Moss. He enters the draft after an excellent junior season in which he caught 78 passes for 1,133 yards and seven TDs and played well against top competition - hauling in 10 receptions for 199 yards and a score versus eventual national champion Auburn. Jones was starting to emerge as a likely top-10 overall draft pick before his injury, and if he can dispel the health concerns before the draft, he may still prove to be one.
