We are only one day away from the start of the 2013 NFL Draft and what else could we ask for on the eve of hearing this year’s first round selections? A Subway Smokehouse BBQ Chicken bust of Jarvis Jones, of course.
Jones, an outside linebacker out of Georgia, is expected to hear his name called within the first round of the NFL Draft, which means that he will likely be off the board at some point in the evening on Thursday. That should give him all weekend to work on finishing his Smokehouse BBQ Chicken sub. I’d say he would need some help, but Jones is a beast, standing at 6-foot-3 and weighing in at 245 lbs. Jones is projected to be selected somewhere between 10-20, according to the latest mock drafts.
In a release according to Brobible, Subway stated:
“Linebacker Jarvis Jones, 2013 draft prospect and newest Famous Fan of SUBWAY, unveils a life-size “Smokehouse BBQ Chicken” sculpture to announce his official SUBWAY Famous Fan title, Tuesday, April 23, 2013, in New York. The sculpture is an artistic representation of the football star from the chest up, standing approximately three feet tall and made of almost entirely SUBWAY Smokehouse BBQ Chicken. Jarvis joins a roster of fellow Famous Fans that include Robert Griffin III, Justin Tuck, Michael Strahan, Blake Griffin and Michael Phelps.”
Everyone loves life-size subway sculptures, right? Well, it’s a bit creepy to be honest. But hey, whatever floats your boat on the days leading up to the NFL Draft.
