2011 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Gets Julio Jones to Help Colt McCoy
Does Julio Jones' Leaping Ability Make Him Leap in the Draft?
The Cleveland Browns appear to be a team on the rise behind the legs of Peyton Hillis and the arm of Colt McCoy however they still have a number of holes on the roster that need to be addressed.
One such hole is a true No. 1 receiver on the outside. Julio Jones could really fill that void if A.J. Green doesn’t fall to them.
Jones really made a leap during the combine. Prior to his workouts he was considered a mid-first round pick and now he is a surefire top-10 pick after an unreal workout on a broken foot.
At the combine Jones ran in the mid 4.4 range in his 40 and also was incredibly explosive when it comes to his leaping ability. He also showed great route running ability and he will no doubt have an big impact early in his NFL career.
The one team that is really bummed out to see Jones make such a big leap is the Rams. They would have loved to see Jones available so that they could give Sam Bradford a great weapon on the outside. Now with Jones likely being picked early in the draft they will have to target a different need.
