Jarvis Jones, OLB/DE, Georgia Bulldogs
2013 Draft Projection: Top 10 draft pick
Weight: 242 lbs
Stats to Date: Total Tackles (including solo and assists): 37 ; Sacks: 5.5; 1 Interception
Jarvis Jones is an electric player when he is healthy. He has the capability to put his hand in the dirt and also play as a stand up linebacker. I think he would be a perfect fit for a 3-4 defense to play rush linebacker. He has enough size and speed to be an immediate difference maker in the NFL. I think that a team like the Colts would love to have Jarvis Jones in their new scheme. With all of this being said the reason I have him as a top 10 prospect and not a top 5 prospect is because of his injury concerns. He has been out this year already due to an ankle injury and if they are not careful these things tend to continue over time and could haunt him for his career. With all of this said it is not a serious injury at this point and I believe he is still worthy of a top 10 pick because of his electric play off the edge.
