By PFW staff

Alabama WR Julio Jones has been turning heads with an impressive performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, with a 4.39 40-time and 11¼ feet in the broad jump. There is no test for a player's toughness, but if there were, Jones would do well in that, too.

Jones has a stress fracture in his foot that will require a screw and two months of rehabilitation, according to the NFL Network. Jones is currently Pro Football Weekly's second-ranked wide receiver and is expected to be a first-round pick despite the injury.

The way we see it

Jones continues to show his toughness and competitiveness in fighting through injuries. He should be recovered from the injury by draft-time and PFW draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki doesn't see this affecting his stock in the slightest. The only possible concern is this is another injury for Jones, who may have durability concerns at the next level, especially considering his physical style of play.
