09:47 AM ET 03.10 | Jarvis Jones' neck injury is starting to look like it might be a non-issue on draft day, and there is little chance he will fall out of the top 10. In a medical report that was sent to NFL teams, leading orthopedist Craig Brigham refutes that Jones ever had a significant spinal cord contusion. When he was at Southern Cal, the pass rusher was diagnosed with one, and Southern Cal did not allow him to play in 2010. Jones transferred to Georgia and played two seasons with no problems.

Why take a Top 10 Chance?

Why take a Top 10 Chance?

Because this kid was told he had a dangerous spinal column condition, so he learned how to tackle properly. He's a beast, and he won't get out of the top 10, if he's not one of the first three players drafted.

I'd be passing. NCAA should investigate how one team can bench someone for an injury like this and another clear the guy to play? How does that happen.
