Georgia Bulldogs’ Jarvis Jones, Potential No. 1 Pick, To Enter 2013 NFL Draft


Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones is one of the top prospects in college football and he has decided to take his talents to the NFL, according to CBSSports.com’s Jeremy Fowler. Jones has led the SEC in sacks for the past two seasons and recently broke the single-season sack record at Georgia with 14.5.

Jones also led the nation in forced fumbles with seven.

He began his college career at USC, before the school’s doctors recommended he give up playing football because of spinal stenosis. He then transferred to Georgia and returned to the field in 2011. Jones has been cleared of any further neck problems.

Many scouts believe that Jones has the ability to become the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

If Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs new general manager are looking for a dynamic player that can rush the passer at the next level, Jones could be the name on the team’s card when Roger Goodell marches out to the podium at Radio City Music Hall in April.
