The Case Against Jarvis Jones
A lot of people have fallen in love with Jarvis Jones. Claiming him to be the only legit pass rusher in this draft. Well, my question is why?
The average draft analyst looks at the stat sheet and says wow, available at 9!? sign me up! However, what really sells you on him as a prospect?
Was a sack artist in Georgia correct, but his main job was to rush the passer, and he pinned his ears back every single play, and rushed the passer every play. Also, he had an elite defense with him, and even greater an elite Defensive Line. 2 of his linemen will be picked within the first 2 days. His fellow Inside Backer will be a first round pick, his fellow OLB will be picked before the 4th round. 2 Safety's that will be in the NFL.
What stands out about Jarvis but the stat sheet? Does Jarvis overly impress you when you watch them? Not really to be honest.
Average burst, mediocre athleticism, lacks elite strength and build that a Terrell Suggs has. Also, he has health concerns, and going by the pattern he's projected to be out of the league in 5 years.
Give me Jordan and even Mingo over him any day of the week.
