Julio Jones is no longer an enigma, and Justin Blackmon can't be stopped
- Getty ImagesJulio Jones has taken his game to another level; Justin Blackmon simply can't be covered.
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.
