Former Georgia All American Jarvis Jones chose not to work out at the NFL Combine, but to focus on interviews and taking physical’s.
Those physical’s could end up cost Jones a ton of money. Pro Football Talk is reporting that the physical’s, and Spinal Stenosis Jones has, has caused some teams to shy away from Jones, and completely remove him from their draft boards.
Per a league source, Jones’ neck has prompted multiple teams to shy away from considering him, especially in round one. He left USC due to concerns over his spinal stenosis. The fact that Georgia welcomed him with open arms shows that reasonable medical minds will differ on whether to take the risk associated with a narrowed spinal canal.
I’m sure some team will end up draft Jones, but I can’t understand how doctors have different opinions on the subject. Is his spinal cord and spinal canal in jeopardy, can Jones be serious hurt playing? That’s the question that needs to be answered.
