NFL Combine Results: WR Julio Jones Has A Big Day

If the Oakland Raiders had the first pick in the draft, Julio Jones would probably be it… Unfortunately for Jones, the Raiders don’t even have a first round pick this year. Still, the WR from Alabama likely boosted his draft stock tremendously with a monster day at the NFL combine in Indy.

When you think of the two physical attributes a WR has to have, what comes to mind? Straight line speed and leaping ability right? Jones lit up Indy this morning with a blazing 4.39 40 yard dash time and a ridiculous 11’3 foot broad jump. When you combine that athletic ability with Jones’ 6-4, 220 pound frame… that’s a scary proposition for NFL defenses.

Plus, no one is going to call Jones simply a workout warrior either. He had 78 catches for over 1,100 yards and 7 TDs in a tough SEC last year. While most scouts still see Georgia WR A.J. Green as the top WR in this draft, Jones has certainly solidified himself as a close #2.
