2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Jarvis Jones
The advantage of Jarvis Jones adjusting to the NFL level is he’s already played in arguably the most competitive conference at the college level in the SEC during his time at Georgia. Throughout the years, the SEC has continued to make a huge statement about how they’re the best conference each season and as bad as it sounds–there’s been debates at times about whether some of their teams could beat NFL teams.
The fact that Jones can play inside or outside linebacker makes him an attractive pick in the first round and there’s a good chance he could emerge into a starter once Week 1 rolls around. Jones has been praised for his explosive burst and ability to get around the edge, but that doesn’t mean he has certain areas in need of work that may be seen as a concern for some teams.
Jones’ frame may be a reason for concern heading into his rookie season. Not to mention the concerns surrounding whether or not Jones will be able to be as effective at stopping the run in the NFL like he was at the college level. Some players tend to struggle when it comes to making the adjustment, but this isn’t anything Jones shouldn’t be able to handle.
Jones has shown plenty of potential throughout his college career and appears ready to make the jump to the NFL level in 2013. If he can find a way to live u to the potential, Jones could turn out to be one of the best investments from this year’s draft class.
