Despite having a broken foot, the dude still ran a 4.39 40. If Miami trades down and finds Jones sitting there in the 20's, they should snag him. The guy is a freak....I don't think a little foot fracture will make him obsolete.
Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones will have surgery on his fractured foot this weekend, his agents, Pat Dye Jr. and Jimmy Sexton, said Wednesday.http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/09000d5d ... _headlines
The surgery might not allow Jones to work out before the NFL Draft in late April, but the likely first-round pick is believed to be in line for a complete recovery after 6 to 8 weeks.
Dr. Bob Anderson, a noted orthopedic surgeon, will perform the operation Saturday in Charlotte, N.C.
Jones' fracture was discovered at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last weekend, but he participated in all drills and was one of the event's outstanding performers. His injury is similar to that suffered by current San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree at the 2009 combine.
NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly first reported Monday that Jones will have a screw inserted in the foot.
Jones was impressive during the gauntlet drills Sunday, showing fluidity, good hands and body control while maintaining focus. And while his broad jump was best among receivers (11 feet, 3 inches -- 2 inches below the combine’s best since 2000), what caught notice was Jones posting the third-fastest 40-yard dash time at 4.39 seconds. Impressive, given that Jones measured in at 6-foot-2 3/4 and 220 pounds.
