Julio Jones Highlight Video
A.J. Green Highlight Video
The more video I watch – the more I am convinced Julio Jones is the best player in this draft. Now only few weeks ago Jones was A.J. Green sidekick in player rankings. A gritty performance at the combine with Jones (playing on broken foot) looking better than Green. This caused a rush to reevaluate Jones on film and this is what we found.
Julio Jones – 6’3” 220 pounds
A.J. Green – 6’3’ 211 pounds
Julio Jones – 4.39 40 yard dash
A.J. Green – 4.48 40 yard dash
Julio Jones – runs with aggression, very powerful and tough
A.J. Green – uses long arms and huge hands to snatch ball away from his body
Where I see each getting drafted:
A.J. Green – with Jones recovering from broken bone injury, Cincy will take the safer pick and go with Green to replace the departed TO and Ocho.
Julio Jones – I just think Jerry Jones has something up his sleeve in this draft. Jones has been the face of NFL owners during labor dispute and while it’s not always good press its attention none the less…and Jones craves that. He will stay in spotlight and pull a shocker on draft day by trading Dez Bryant and selecting Julio Jones with #9 pick. I believe Jason Garrett and Co will find Jones to be more coachable in a team oriented philosophy recently installed.
