UConn football cornerback Byron Jones made a huge splash during the 2015 NFL Combine when he broke the world record for broad jump at 12 feet 3 inches. He also turned heads with his 44.5 inch vertical jump.

For UConn football fans, this wasn’t anything they hadn’t seen before. He jumped on to an almost four foot box during a Women’s 101 Football Clinic in June of 2014.

In Todd McShay’s last mock draft on ESPN Insider, he had Jones listed in the next four top prospects. Now in the latest mock draft, McShay has Jones going at 32nd to the Patriots.

Jones will get a chance to show the scouts even more during the UConn Huskies Pro Day tomorrow (March 31). It is NOT open to the public but I will do my best to provide any coverage I can.
