Julio Jones 6th Pick in 2011 NFL Draft

Jones, Julio Alabama 6026 220 4.39 Junior entry.

Atlanta Falcons

Three-year starter who is a big physical receiver
with rare speed for his size. Ran faster than we projected. Can
make the acrobatic adjustment to the ball on a back shoulder
throw. A big target who will reach and extend for the ball on a
slant pattern. Has no fear of going across the middle. A clutch,
big play receiver who has the mentality of a press corner. Physical
and tough. Will sacrifice his body for the ball. Has the stamina
to run all day long. Productive against top level competition.
Battled Patrick Peterson for three straight years and it could be
argued that Jones took two of the three match-ups. A strong
hand catcher who will break a tackle and finish a play. Falls
forward. Instinctive running ability. Not easy to tackle.
