2011 NFL Draft: A.J. Green vs. Julio Jones

By Mike Sando

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.
