Georgia Pro Day results: Jarvis Jones runs slow, has apparent injury

USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars were in attendance at the Georgia Pro Day on Thursday, as general manager Dave Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley kept an eye on some prospects.

The big name at the Pro Day was linebacker Jarvis Jones, but judging by the official numbers he disappointed. Jones pulled up in his first 40-yard dash attempt, but in his second try he was clocked at 4.85 unofficially with a 4.92 official time released by the school. With that time, Jones would have been the second slowest linebacker at the NFL combine, ahead of only Bruce Taylor.

The 40-yard dash wasn't the only thing Jones tested poorly in though, as he registered just a 9'3" broad jump, which would have tied him for the lowest total at the NFL Combine for linebackers. Jones did put up 20 reps on the bench press of 225 pounds which would have tied him for ninth among combine participants.

It was said that Jones looked just fine running linebacker drills, however. The lack of explosion from Jones isn't that much of a surprise, at least to me, as I've maintained he's more a "work hard" pass rusher than he is a speed rusher.

Jones might have been the headliner, but there were plenty of other players the Jaguars could be interested in at the Pro Day. Cornerback Sanders Commings is a bigger, longer physical type of cornerback that Gus Bradley seems to want in the defense going forward and the Jaguars are reportedly very interested in him.

Georgia also boasts Cornelius Washington, the very interesting pass rusher and workout warrior from the Senior Bowl and combine, defensive tackles John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers, as well as linebacker Alex Ogletree and safety Bacarri Rambo.
