Jarvis Jones might benefit from position switch

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia’s pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures.

Among the notables in attendance at the pro day were New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and general manager David Caldwell, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese, Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix, and Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim.

Marlon Brown, WR (6-foot-4, 217 pounds) — Brown was only measured and stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, with the exception of the bench press (10 lifts of 225 pounds).

Sanders Commings, CB (6-0 3/4, 216) — Commings did 23 strength lifts, stood on his numbers from the combine, and did positional drills.

Kwame Geathers, NT (6-6, 335) — Geathers ran the 40-yard dash in 5.41 and 5.43 seconds, and did the three-cone drill in 7.85 seconds. He had a 29-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-7 broad jump. He also had 21 strength lifts.

John Jenkins, DT (6-4 1/4, 343) — Jenkins ran the 40 in 5.20 and 5.26 seconds. He had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.94 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.74 seconds. Jenkins had an impressive workout.

Abry Jones, DE (6-2 5/8, 312) — Jones ran the 40 in 5.19 seconds with the wind and 5.29 seconds against the wind. He had a 4.94-second short shuttle and a 7.93-second three-cone drill. He also did positional drills.

Jarvis Jones, LB (6-2 5/8, 249) — Jones — who chose not to work out at the combine (which didn’t help alleviate concerns over health) — ran the 40 in 4.92 seconds on each of his runs. He had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.69 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.43 seconds. He also performed 20 strength lifts. Jones worked out as both an outside linebacker and defensive end at the pro day. There is sentiment that Jones’ best position in the NFL might be as a pass-rushing defensive end.

Tavarres King, WR (6-0 7/8, 191) — King opted to stand on his combine numbers and only did position drills at Georgia’s pro day.

Alec Ogletree, LB (6-2 5/8, 244) — Ogletree ran the 40 in 4.64 seconds with the wind and 4.75 seconds against the wind. He had a 4.57-second short shuttle and a 7.11-second three-cone drill. He also performed 18 strength lifts. His best NFL position is probably as a weak-side linebacker.

Bacarri Rambo, SS (6-0 3/8, 209) — Rambo ran the 40 in 4.64 and 4.66 seconds. He had a 34-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-9 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.31 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.94 seconds.

Cornelius Washington, LB (6-4, 263) — Washington ran really well at the combine (officially 4.55 seconds in the 40, which placed him among the top performers in his position group), so he only did the short shuttle (4.75 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.48 seconds) at Georgia’s pro day. Washington worked out at linebacker, and the scouts on hand also wanted to see him work out as a defensive lineman with his hand in the ground. However, a pulled hamstring prevented Washington from doing so.

Shawn Williams, SS (6-0, 215) — Williams was measured, stood on his numbers from the combine and went through position drills. Williams is not a good-looking athlete, but the best way to describe him is as a “football player,” meaning that while he doesn’t work out well he does shine when it’s 11-on-11 on the field.

Each of the aforementioned players was at the combine.
