Georgia All-America OLB Jarvis Jones unimpressive at Pro Day

Jarvis Jones, the Georgia outside linebacker who had been projected to fall to the New Orleans Saints in the upcoming NFL draft, may fallen even further after his Pro Day workout.

Georgia's Jarvis Jones ran a 4.92 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. a$sociated Press
Jones, an All-American who led the nation is sacks and tackles for losses this past season, was unimpressive at his Pro Day workout, running the 40-yard dash in just 4.92 seconds. He broad jumped 9-3 and had a vertical leap of 30 ˝. He did 20 reps on the bench press, according to multiple media reports.

Many scouts were eager to see the 6-foot-2, 242-pound Jones work out after his skipped drills at last month's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Even before Jones turned in his less-than-stellar workout numbers, his high draft status had been in question because of a medical condition. As a freshman while playing at USC, Jones was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. The condition already had dropped Jones, who had been projected as high as the No. 2 overall draft prospect, in some mock drafts. But he apparently checked out well at the Combine.

The condition certainly didn't hinder Jones at Georgia, where he registered 28 sacks in his final two seasons. But his Pro Day performance could prove costly.

The Saints, who are switching to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, are in need of a 3-4 outside linebacker with pass-rushing skills.

But it remains unclear if any team will take a chance on a productive college player, with limited athletic ability, early in April's draft.

Wasn't just his 40, his vertical sucked, too, and he was falling and stumbling all over the field in the drills.

He's a pass rusher none of that matters that much. Pass rushers are a premium in FA and in the draft he's going in the top 15-20 regardless. I wouldn't mind him or Ogletree at #15.

Doesnt matter he is a good pass rusher and has a hunger to get to the ball. But if you run at him he wont do !!.

That's too slow to play 3-4 Olb and he is waaay too small to play 4-3 DE. With the spinal stenosis I could see him dropping past 20 now

wasnt too slow in the 3-4 in college and UGA didnt hide him or do anything to help him succeed at the position in regards to scheme.

So a faster 40 time equates to him being a superior athlete now?

Anyway, I want Olegtree more than JJ.. As most fans should
