While Jarvis Jones did not perform at the combine, he was on hand for Georgia's pro day. I am assuming that he'd rather not have been. The talented pass-rusher struggled a big time.
Chip Towers over at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution filed the following report immediate after Jones' pedestrian pro day performance.
The Bulldogs’ two-time All-American stumbled on his first run at the 40-yard dash and then was clocked at just 4.85 seconds on his second pass. Jones fell again during the linebackers’ pass skeleton drill and generally didn’t look fantastically athletic.
That 4.85 40-yard dash would have placed Jones second-worst among linebackers at the combine. This is not a great sign for someone that will be asked to get to the quarterback from the edge in the NFL. Again, according to CBS Sports, Jones' 40 time was 4.92. Either way, it wasn't a stellar performance.
Then again, it also makes little sense to look at generic drills when scouting a possible pass-rushing specialist and how he might translate to the NFL.
For his part, Jones doesn't seem to be too bothered by what was an average pro day performance.
At the end of the day, everybody knows what I do,” said Jones, who is expected to be the first pass rusher taken. “I’m a football player. I compete. Today, I left it on the field. It is what it is. I’ve just got to take my visits and continue to work on becoming a better football player.
I wouldn't be either. Jones is a lock to go in the first round, and no amount of struggles as they relate to generic drills will change that.
