As we approach the 2013 NFL Draft, there is more information emerging from the scouting community about the view many NFL teams have on the prospects for the upcoming draft. Some of the news that has begun to emerge is not the most flattering, but it’s the way the news cycle works as the draft approaches.

There can be smokescreens sent out from teams, but often times the talent evaluators give you a true feel for the pulse around the league.

The latest player to have some negative news surrounding his draft stock come to the surface is Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones.  senior analyst and former VP of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys of nearly thirty years Gil Brandt gave his thoughts on the Bulldogs star and the belief went against the grain.


Many believe Jones could go in the top ten, but Brandt is not drinking the kool-aid.

The injury concerns that initially began to drop Jones down the board seemed to have disappeared, but something is rubbing Brandt the wrong way. The NFL analyst did not elaborate on why he is dropping Jones out of the first round, but we will be keeping a close eye to see if he offers up an explanation.

We have a sneaking suspicion that Jones’ fall has something to do with his terrible performance at the Georgia Pro Day that included a 4.92 second 40-yard dash and a mere 20 reps on the bench press.
