Jones to Combine

Another piece of good news for Falcon football that I missed from yesterday is that DT Chris Jones...the MAC defensive player of the year...has been invited to the NFL combine.

I think this was really important for him.  He didn't get invited to the high visibility senior all-star games, and this is a chance to show the NFL what he can do.  He is getting some notices in draft circles.  He's not going to be a high draft pick, but he's a very productive player.  All you can ask is a chance to show what you can do, and this is step one.  I'm sure he will end up in a training camp, and that's step two.

Jones was an absolute warrior for the Falcons, and nothing will ever take that away.  It would be fantastic to see him play on Sunday.
