After showing a great deal of promise as a freshman, Alabama WR Julio Jones failed to take the next step the following season. Not being 100 percent physically for a good portion of the '09 campaign certainly played a part, but he also lacked good ball security. Other than a 4-catch, 102-yard effort against LSU, he only had one other game in which he totaled more than 70 receiving yards. Physical skills are great, but at some point, productivity has to be there. Well, that was last year.
Through two years at Alabama, Julio Jones was seen as something of an enigma. He could block, but at 6-4, 222 pounds, he's a prototype WR built to dominate. Now, he's taken his game to a new level. Justin Blackmon has joined him.
