Bio

Julio Jones is a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons traded five draft picks to the Cleveland Browns in order to trade up and draft Jones.

EARLY YEARS

Jones was born February 3, 1989 in Foley, Alabama. As a junior at Foley High School, Jones has 75 catches for 1,306 yards and 16 TDs. He recorded a 4.45 second 40-yard dash and an event-best 38.6-inch vertical jump at the Baton Rouge Nike camp in May 2007.

UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA

Jones started his collegiate career fast, catching 58 balls for 924 yards and four TDs as a freshman. This included a five reception, 124 yards with a 64-yard TD against the #2 Florida Gators.

With Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson taking care of the offense, Jones took a step back as a sophomore, only catching 43 passes and four TDs. But as a junior, Jones broke out. He finished his final year with the Crimson Tide with team-record 78 catches for 1,133 yards and seven TDs. He added two more scores on the ground.

ATLANTA FALCONS

Jones was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons with the sixth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

As a rookie, Jones recorded five 100-yard games and three multiple TD games. He finished the season with eight TD receptions, six of which came in the last four games.

In 2013, Jones was on pace for a monster season before he injured his foot, forcing him to miss the rest of the season. In five games, Jones had recorded 41 catches, 580 yards, and two TDs.
