UGA's Jones is heading to NFL

Posted: Updated:

 

Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones surprised some when he came back for his junior year with the Bulldogs.

Jones said he felt he needed to improve before heading to the NFL.  

Jarvis Jones believes he is ready for the next level.

The all-American linebacker from Columbus informed Georgia today he is leaving school to enter the NFL draft.

It is not that surprising of a decision.

Most NFL draft analysts believe Jones will be a top five if not the first overall pick in April.

Jarvis Jones transferred to Georgia from Southern Cal in 2010.

After sitting out that year, he was a two time all-American for the Bulldogs.

He is third all time in quarterback sacks.

Playing just 28 games.

He also this year broke David Pollack's single season sack record at Georgia.

Jones and linebacker Alec Ogletree have announced they will enter the NFL draft.

Quarterback Aaron Murray and defensive lineman Kwame Geathers are also deciding whether to return for their senior seasons.
