This is the first in a series of NFL Draft Diaries for ESPN The Magazine. Look for more videos from hot prospects as we lead up to the 2010 NFL draft.

Among the strong crop of defenders entering the 2010 draft is Syracuse's Arthur Jones. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive tackle set several records and made the All-Big East team three years running while playing for the Orange. He's currently working out at Performance Training Center for Elite Athletes in Phoenix alongside several fellow A-list draft prospects. ESPN The Magazine has talked to Jones throughout the process as he documents what life is like these days. Valentine's dinners with his girlfriend and intense pingpong battles against MLB stars are just part of a typical week for Jones -- when he gets a break from his two- and three-a-day workouts, that is. Take a look.
