Matt Jones with the 30th pick.....
 
Matt Jones
Height: 6-6?
Weight: 242
40 time (hand-timed): 4.37 and 4.39
40 time (electronic): 4.40
Vertical jump: 39.5 inches
Standing broad jump: 10 feet, 9 inches

There is alot of talk in Steeler nation that we will pick Jones. He is another former QB, but a great all around athelete. Chris Mortenson said this morning that the draft's fastest rising player was in fact Matt Jones and that he should be taken very early in the 2nd and quite possibly late in the 1st. If this is the case I for one am all for taking him at #30. That kid will have El like skill with Plax like size. In essence if you were to sit down at a drafting table and were looking to engineer a WR, you would draw Matt Jones.

i think we should pick up fabian washington (CB), this guy has excellent athletic ability.

Matt jones looks intresting, im gonna read up on him some more. But do u think he will be available in 2nd round?

he's not gonna fall to the end of the second round to us, and we'd have to have 1 helluva a deal on draft day to move up to get him.. but taking him in the first round MIGHT be too much of a reach, and hence we may not get a decent shot at him.

I agree. Moving up too fast. Heard Kiper say 15-20 now. We don't need to lose a 3rd or 4th guy to just get him. Anyone seen that value chart the NFl has on draft movement? It is usually floating around somehwere this time of year where if I want to move up 6 spots it costs me a pick this round and one next round or what not? Need to see that...

15 to 20, that sucks. I really want him to be there for the Steelers. They dont have to take him, but I at least want them to be forced to consider it. It would be tough to pass on him with the 30th pick.

Crazy stuff. Thanks for the vids. Reminds me of "sunshine" from Remember the Titans. I think his name was Sunshine.

We dont have enuff ammo this year to move up and get him..unless we gave away atleast 1 of our day 1 picks and probably 1 next year along w/ a player...maybe even some day 2 picks too.

our draft position doesnt give us enuff leverage to really move up this year, from what I can tell.

Re: Matt Jones with the 30th pick.....
 
Fox Sports newest mock draft has the Steelers selecting Matt Jones with the 30th pick. This is the 3rd mock I have seen with them taking Jones. This is what it said......


30. Steelers Matt Jones WR Arkansas
The Steelers already have three former college QBs in their huddle. With the success of Hines Ward and Antwaan Randle El, however, they won't be afraid to select the former Arkansas QB and make him their next conversion project. Jones would step into the role vacated by Plaxico Burress, especially in the red zone and on deep routes.
