Georgia LB Jarvis Jones was unimpressive during his workouts at his Pro Day today. He ran a 4.90-second 40 yard dash today at Pro Day. That is slower than Manti Te’o, who also disappointed scouts.
That could get Jarvis Jones to slip down NFL Draft Boards. Jones is one of the top pass rushing prospects in the draft, but that slow speed will have people looking over the tape again and questioning his selection.
Now, there will be questions about his health and questions about his ability, He could be there at 11. We might have those very same questions as other teams.
Speed was a big part of his game at the college level. He beat offensive linemen off of the edge with his speed rush and that is how he beat on quarterbacks. He is not a huge linebacker, so that slower speed is a little concerning.
I wonder how much stock Tom Telesco and the crew put into measurables or onto tape?
