I get that he didn't work at the combine, and his pro date's late March.
First off I'd like to say, I've seen this man all season long. Resident in Georgia, obviously, and big UGA fan. This guy, Jarvis Jones, won two HUGE games for the Bulldogs this year, nearly single-handidly.
vs Florida ...
courtesy of wiki, and I def. didn't get my idea from this. lol
He played an integral role in wins over Missouri and Florida.
2011 stats: 70 tackles, 13.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles
2012 stats: 85 tackles, 14.5 sacks, 7 FORCED FUMBLES
Jarvis Jones is a machine. 6'3, 240. Kiper has his 40 projected @ 4.5.
Jarvis Jones made crucial forced fumbles in both the Missouri game and Florida game. When UGA played Florida, UGA was ranked #10, Florida #2. Could be off. Jarvis attacked the qb, sealed us the dub. (WIN)
Look at his 2012 stats. he incresed in every statistical category, and led the Georiga Bulldogs a game away from the national title, in the horrid Sec. Jarvis Jones is more athletic than Manti T'eo, that's for sure. lol

Quick note: when Jones came out of HS his 40 yard dash was timed at 4.65, so we'll see about that 4.5 flat. Regardless, I'm not gonna try to convince anyone that Jones doesn't have the talent to be proclaimed the best player in the draft.
Here's why: he's a FREAK of nature. Von Miller 2.0. Not Von-lite, but the second coming of Miller. He is an absolutely terrifying pass rusher and he's good against the run and in pass defense, as well. Athletically speaking, Jones is as good as they come. And he has the game film (from the SEC, no less) to prove that he's not merely a workout warrior.
Just off talent, Jones is every bit as good as you say, PCHy mon.
He also has spinal stenosis.
For those who are uninformed, spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal column. It's only supposed to happen in really old people, unless (like me, and more than likely like Jones) you have Degenerative Disc Disease, which can leave a 25 year old man with the spine of an 80 year old. Trust me on this one, it's something I deal with every day.
Jones' spine is shot and it's never gonna get better. You can't fix spine injuries.
His condition lowers his value.
