Matt Jones of Arkansas

This dude is a freak. Did any of you see his stats from the NFL Scouting Combine:

Height: 6 ft. 6 and 1/4 inches
Weight: 242
40 time (hand-timed): 4.37 and 4.39
40 time (electronic): 4.40
Vertical jump: 39.5 inches
Standing broad jump: 10 feet, 9 inches

Seems no one wants him to play QB though – everyone is talking about him as a receiver or an H-back.

Think anyone will take a flyer and let him play QB? I don’t know what kind of arm he has, but with stats like that – and after watching him tear up the SEC the past two years – he’s a freak. He could be like Vick with height, but maybe without quite the same quickness.

I’m not surprised they want to convert him. He’s a great athlete, but not an outstanding QB.

He’s not a Vick, because Vick has a cannon to go with the speed. And also flat out speed is one thing, but it is another to have the ankle-braking jukes that Vick puts on people.

Was his 225 test also freakish?

QB’s and WR’s do not as a rule do the BP test. Too much risk of injury is the official reason. I know it does not make sense but then why are reps at 225 seen as so important? No sense either.
