Jarvis Jones had one of the most productive college careers of any defensive prospect in the 2013 NFL draft. He got to the quarterback nearly two dozen times in his final two seasons at Georgia and seemed to be locked in as a top-10 pick just a few months ago. 

Things have since changed. 

Jones has spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal cord. As Kevin Seifert over at ESPN notes, it has caused some previous NFL players to retire early.

That being said, Jones has the talent and production to be a darn good player at the next level. 

Here are five things you need to know about the Georgia product.
