Glenn, Jones still solid as first-rounders

December, 21, 2011
ESPN's Todd McShay released the first edition of his 2012 NFL mock draft today, while Mel Kiper Jr. updated his Big Board, both projecting first-round scenarios for April's draft. Each included a Georgia Bulldog.

On the Big Board, Kiper kept Georgia senior OT Cordy Glenn at No. 17, stating that Glenn is a "really experienced player whose best strength is versatility."

In McShay's mock draft, there are 19 underclassmen, including Georgia redshirt sophomore OLB Jarvis Jones, projected at No. 28 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. McShay's assessment of Jones is that he has "the skill set to possibly become [Pittsburgh's] next great pass-rusher."

Jones has told DawgNation on several occasions that his preference is to return to the Bulldogs and, if the rest of the defense also returns, to become what Jones feels could be the nation's No. 1 defense.
