05:13 PM ET 01.04 | Georgia Bulldogs star linebacker Jarvis Jones is declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft, according to a report from CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler. He joins a flood of talent from the Dawgs into the NFL, including linebacker Alec Ogletree, defensive tackle John Jenkins and others. Jones is widely regarded as one of the top defensive prospects in this year's upcoming draft. In SB Nation's latest mock draft by Dan Kadar, Jones is tabbed to go No. 9 to the New York Jets. For the season, Jones finished with 14.5 sacks, 85 tackles and 24.5 tackles for loss. The two-time All-American did all this despite missing two games due to injuries. Jones recently capped off a record-setting season at Georgia with an eight-tackle, two-sack performance in a 45-31 Capital One Bowl victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on New Year's Day. In the game, Jones broke the school record for sacks that was previously held by defensive end David Pollack.
