UConn cornerback and NFL prospect, Byron Jones is an Afffffffleeeeeeeete; on Monday at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine he not only set NFL combine records but also WORLD RECORDS.
His vertical leap marked at 44.5-inches, to put in some perspective: Byron Jones could jump over an Olympic hurdle (3.5 feet tall) without any kind of running start, from a still position he can jump over it without bending his knees and lifting his legs up at all. The only thing I can jump over like that is a phone book (after a warm up).
Jones also recorded an astonishing 12-foot, 3-inch broad jump that set not only a combine record, but also shattered the WORLD RECORD of 11-feet, 4 1/2-inches.
As several NFL General Managers salivated over his results, the real question for the Corner Back is can he cover anyone?
