Overview:

Julio Jones is a great receiver with sky high potential. He would probably be a Top 5 pick if it wasn’t for A.J. Green. Julio Jones blew up the combine with a 4.3 40 while measuring in at 6’4 and 220 pounds. He is a freak athlete that has the production to match. He has to be more consistent catching the ball however. Too often he lets the ball get into his chest and he doesn’t look the ball in, which leads to a lot of ugly drops. If he works on that, he has the potential to be one of the best receivers in the NFL.
