Jarvis Jones Will Not Work Out at NFL Combine


Fan favorite and high pass rushing prospect Jarvis Jones will not be working out at the NFL Combine this year.  Per Adam Schefter, Jones will focus on his Pro Day in Georgia.

 

 

Jones is a favorite of many Jacksonville Jaguars fans, so it is disappointing that he won’t be doing the same events alongside other linebacker and defensive end prospects.  With some health issues already a prominent part of his career, it will be important for Jones to still get checked out by doctors to prove that he is not having any issues that could derail his status as a top-10 or top-15 pick.

While the Jags aren’t really looking for a pass rushing linebacker, outside of the LEO position, it would have been nice to see if Jones could compete against Damontre Moore and Bjoern Werner.  I guess we’ll have to wait until his Pro Day in Athens.
