Pro Day Spotlight: Georgia, Stanford

Jarvis Jones 2013 NFL Draft

The downward perception of Jarvis Jones’ draft stock is likely to continue following a disappointing pro day performance.

NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

Thursday was a big day on the pro day schedule leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, highlighted by the pro days held at Georgia and Stanford, both of which were streamed via ESPN3.

I took the time to watch both pro days, focusing on some of the top prospects from each school and evaluating what the workouts showed about their athleticism.

Specifically, the day’s headliner was one of the draft class’ premier prospects, Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones. Having not worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Bulldogs’ pro day was an important opportunity for him to show his athleticism to the scouts. Unfortunately for Jones, he had a disappointing showing.

This year’s Rose Bowl provided something for everyone: frequent scoring in the first half, a defensive struggle in the second half.

This year’s Rose Bowl between the Stanford Cardinal and the Wisconsin Badgers presents some interesting matchups involving NFL Draft prospects, most notably when Wisconsin has possession of the football. The Badgers will attempt to establish the ground game early, with running back Montee Ball operating behind offensive linemen Ricky Wagner and Travis Frederick. Stanford’s linebackers, Chase Thomas and Shayne Skov, also project as first or second-day picks.

Additionally, the Cardinal have some offensive talent of their own, most notably tight end Zach Ertz, a first or second-round pick, and running back Stepfan Taylor, a likely mid-round selection who may be able to sneak into the second day. Read on for more information regarding the Rose Bowl’s top prospects.
