    Marvin Jones Senior Bowl Third day

    A few updates for Marv Jones after 3 days....

    Marvin Jones, Cal - Early returns on Jones were very positive from Monday's practice. He's not the biggest guy on the field, under 6'2" and about 200 lbs, but that hasn't stopped him. According to Rob Rang, Jones showed explosiveness off the line, burst and speed to get by defensive backs. And he caught the ball consistently.

    Cal WR Marvin Jones had another very good practice. He runs really crisps routes and gets in and out of his breaks just as good as anyone down here. What has really impressed me with him is his hands. He catches everything out in front of his body and doesn’t let the ball get into him. He was lined up at the slot position primarily.

    I was impressed with how physical and competitive he was in run blocking drills. Jones really attacked the blocker and deliver a good pop. This is a kid who was overshadowed by uber-recruit Keenan Allen at Cal, but someone whose stock is rising.

    As for the wide receivers, Cal's Marvin Jones continued to show strong in practices. Jones continues to beat press coverage and drive defenders off in his cuts. He doesn't seem to waste any movement in his routes either and seems to catch everything. Jones also gives maximum effort on every play and held his own in run blocking drills.

    WR Marvin Jones of Cal continues to impress. We spoke of his route-running skills and burst earlier, but he's also a heady ball player. He just did a terrific job staying with the action and following his quarterback across the field, finding the open space to help out the signal caller, who was about to be sacked.
    A lot of people talked about California WR Marvin Jones on Monday, and I can see why. He is very quick on his routes and made a couple of nice catches. He may have the best speed among the North's receivers.

    I'm happy for Jones. I know he wanted a shot at the NFL and it looks like he is going to get it

    CAL fans know he can catch everything. He's had lots of practice leaping, diving, and stretching for off target throws his whole career.

    I would have thought 2nd or 3rd round would have been a huge win for him at the end of the season.

    If the guy can run in the 4.5 range or lower, he'll be an incredibly attractive pick in those rounds.

    Let's hope he doesn't get drafted by Denver and goes to a team with an accurate QB.

    Glad to see Marv doing well.

    I think he's a early-mid rounder. 4th round. maybe 5th round.

    Cam Jordan did so well at Sr. Bowl that he shot up to first round. I will say late 2nd or 3rd for Jones.
