Re: Matt Jones

Everyone is drooling over this guy's physical attributes, but I'm a little concerned about a guy coming in to the league having to learn a new position. There's been many physical freaks to come through the league that have never amounted to anything.

Re: Matt Jones

Brock Lesnar ring a bell anyone. He is the definition of a freak and you'd think that SOME coach could mold him into something usable, but it just wasn't happening. Now I'm sure that Jones would be a bit easier to teach than Lesnar, but it's just tough.

TWO WORDS!! ANTONIO GATES!!

Didn't play college football, and the last time he played any football was in Highschool! C'mon man!

Atheletic ability is rare comodity. Jones is worth a 9th round pick.

Who wants another Desmond Howard, Mike Westbroken, Heath Schuler!!!

Re: Matt Jones

I would say a 9th round pick, but that's about it.

Re: Matt Jones

saden1:

Rayfield Wright of the Cowboys started out as a TE and wound up as an All-Pro OT for years. He may even be in the HoF...

Lenny Moore was a RB in college and a RB when he first came to the NFL but wound up in the HoF as a WR.

Charley Taylor was a RB who did OK as a WR - or am I remembering wrong?

Paul Hornung was a QB at Notre Dame but is in the HoF as an NFL RB.

Calvin Hill was a fullback in college (Yale no less) and an All-Pro TE in the NFL.



offiss:

I was kidding about taking him as a CB. After all the glowing remarks about his physical prowess, it seemed to me that you could project him there too.

But I wan't kidding about waiting a LONG time to draft him if you think he's your QB of the future - - because I don't think he'll ever be a big time NFL QB.

Re: Matt Jones

i have complete trust in stan hixon to mold jones into a great wr... and like i said earlier, anyone could be a bust in this draft, anyone, so id like to take the one that has the most height with speed with basketball hands, agility

if we dont get him, i wont cry about it (until he is doing great with who did) , i like carlos rogers at 9. and with the recent report of pac man having a terrible work out, id say its a lock for rogers

Re: Matt Jones

I haven't checked out Rogers recently. What are people saying about taking him with our first? Is he worthy of it?

Funny, those three had their share of athletic ability too.

Here's a name to think of when talking about physical freaks, Tony Mandarich.

Yes he ended up having a couple of decent seasons at the end of his career, but he wasn't the Canton bound tackle he was thought to be coming into the league.

I guess I'm just not buying into the Matt Jones hype yet.

Re: Matt Jones

I'm selling on this one...

I could see him as a project late in the draft, but that is it.

Re: Matt Jones

I like Carlos Rogers, but at 9 it's a waste. If the phone's ringing. Trade down. Rogers is a great DB. I still think if BMW is there we need to take him. We need a redzone threat, and I'm not sure Gibbs is willing to let McCants play that roll. Cooley does well, but people we need other options.

Re: Matt Jones

selling on jones too... not worth a first round pick, DEFINATELY not worth the #9 pick... he hasn't done a lot as a WR yet, his hands could be questionable, and there's more to being a WR than speed... you have to get seperation, know where to be etc... he just doesn't seem like the kind of guy thats going to enter the league with guns blazing... BMW isn't gauranteed, but his chances are much much MUCH higher...

Re: Matt Jones

Another tid bit. We all know that coach Gibbs is a devout Christian, so here is another reason for him to like Matt Jones:

(I just wonder if the author is related to Coach Gibbs)

http://www.christianitytoday.com/spo...mattjones.html

Up Next: Matt Jones
Quarterback, Football, University of Arkansas. Junior, Age 20.
compiled by Jim Gibbs


In 2001, Jones turned in one of the most prolific freshman campaigns in UA history. After sitting out the first three contests, he appeared in the final eight games and split time with Zak Clark at quarterback. He led the team with an average of 108.4 yards of total offense per game and accounted for 31.6 percent of the Hogs' total offense in the final seven games. Jones was the second-leading rusher on the squad with 592 yards and five touchdowns on only 74 attempts. Set new UA quarterback rushing yardage record (a team-high 74.0 ypg). Recorded two 100-yard rushing games.


But that wasn't all. He also played on the Razorbacks' basketball team, averaging four points and two rebounds per game. His father, who played football at Ouachita Baptist University, is a coach. Matt is enrolled in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and is majoring in political science. He would like to run for political office some day.


In the Razorbacks media guide, Jones noted that the person he would like to have dinner with is, "Jesus. Just to be in his presence would be awesome."


Highlight: "I've really had a lot of fun with sports over the years, especially playing college football. But as strange as it may sound, one of my greatest sports highlights was when I was playing basketball in the fifth grade and I kept begging my teacher to come to one of my games. She finally came, and I didn't play very well early in the game. But later I hit the game-winning shot, and it really meant a lot to me that she was there."


Top Verse: Psalms 37:4


His Story: "I was 7 years old, and I went to a church service. The preacher was talking about how, without Christ, a person would go to hell. I didn't want to go to hell, so I accepted Christ. For me, it was just that simple. And over the years, that relationship with Christ has gotten stronger and stronger."


Key ingredient: "I think it's important to surround yourself with strong Christians you can share your problems with and who can help hold you accountable for things."


Goal: "I'd like to start a Christian camp out in the woods for kids of all ages some day. It would help get a lot of kids out of the city for a week or two and let them see nature."

Jones is a hell of a player-be a hell of a TE-my opinion
