In todays Monday Morning Quarterback (Tuesday edition) Sports Illustrated's Peter King discussed this topic:
That's why I believe there's a better chance now, five weeks before the draft, that Jones will get picked before Green -- if Cincinnati is doing the receiver-picking at number four in the first round.
After reading this, I thought to myself "I read this before.....well, sorta!!"
2011 NFL Draft: A.J. Green vs. Julio Jones
Greg Gabriel at National Football Post "if I needed a wideout and both were there, Jones is my guy."
At least one NFL scout tells Wes Bunting of the National Football Post that he prefers Alabama's Julio Jones to seemingly consensus top 2011 receiver prospect A.J. Green of Georgia.
This won't be the majority, but it's not hard to imagine power running, West Coast offense-type teams preferring Jones because of his blocking and run-after-catch ability. Jones just isn't quite the field stretcher Green was in college. The biggest key for both receivers will be to run well at the Combine. Source: Wes Bunting on Twitter
In addition to being a more complete wide receiver, Green's best season in college was better than Jones' best season, and his worst year was superior to Jones' worst year. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/612212-2011-nfl-draft-aj-green-vs-julio-jones
