Detellier Ponders Jarvis Jones/ Jordan Mills & Jared Smith Visit with Saints



worth a read

I still can’t believe that someone this talented and productive who looks like a great fit as an edge pass rusher in the NFL would tumble this far due to subpar workouts, but it happens each year.

Over the next few weeks watch what happens to Jones because of all of the edge pass rushers at outside linebacker he becomes the guy most likely to be there for the Saints at No. 15.

At No. 15 Jones is a player that two months ago I thought would never be there, but in the real NFL, there is a good chance he might be.
--------------------

another draft note-

Louisiana Tech offensive tackle Jordan Mills is going to visit the New Orleans Saints, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

Mills is a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection who's regarded as a rising draft prospect.

He's the cousin of Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams.

Some draft analysts project him from the second round to third round.

The 6-foot-5, 316-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 5.23 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

He bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times, registering a 28 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 28 1/2 inch vertical leap, an 8-5 broad jump, a 4.88 20-yard shuttle and an 8.10 three-cone drill.

Mills has drawn comparisons to Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher.

I would love Jarvis Jones just as much as the next guy, but there are TWO big concerns that I have.

1. He obviously tore up the college ranks, in the SEC even. But what if this guy is just skating by on natural talent? He doesn't seem to put in any effort in strength and conditioning. I worry that he may hit a brick wall at some point in the NFL with lack of a work ethic. I would also question his ability to study play books/film and better himself in that area as well.

2. Very simple logic - if he slides all the way down to #15, who's to say that the Saints will take him? CSP has made a couple statements along the lines of health and the direction they want to go.

Again, I love Jarvis Jones... But I'm just pointing out that it may not be a home run pick even if he does fall to #15

Jones in the 1st, and Mills in the 3rd would be an incredible way to start the draft.

Some coaches think they're God's gift and will draft a weightroom warrior solely on workout results, thinking they will be the one coach who can motivate a guy. Me, I'll take the underachiever in the weightroom who only goes out on the field and makes 12 tackles/3 sacks a game, so , I'll take Jarvis Jones.
