2011 NFL Draft Grades: How Good Will Julio Jones Be in the NFL?
Will Julio Jones be a Top 10 Pick in the 2011 NFL Draft?
Julio Jones and A.J. Green are the two best receivers in the 2011 draft class. Some would like to debate that Jones is better than Green simply because he out shined him at the NFL Combine. Green is hands down the better of the two because he had the best hands.
One thing is certain between these two. They will be forever compared throughout their careers. Does this mean they will forever despise each other? That is in no way the case at all. Green told reporters the two are friends.
From New York Post:
“We’re friends. We work out together, and he’s a great guy,” Green said at the scouting combine. “We’re not going to be mad if [the other] is the top receiver drafted. It’s not going to mess with our friendship. Whatever happens, happens.”
Jones echoes that sentiment, saying: “A.J.’s a great guy.”

The two may be friends off the field, but on it they're enemies. Both have great potential for the NFL, but I give the edge to Green. Jones may be bigger, but he can't catch quite like Green can.
Grade: B+ Julio Jones has the skills to be a great wideout in the NFL. He'll need to constantly work with the quarterback he's drafted too, and work on consistently bringing the ball in. His big frame will bode well for him at the next level, but he will fail in the NFL if he struggles to catch the ball, especially over the middle.
