    Julio Jones to compete in 13th annual All-Star Football Challenge

    I just was browsing Julio Jones stuff, seeing if he has officially declared for the combine, and stumbled across this. I know for sure I will be watching, as I am hoping to be watching the Rams future 1st round pick and Sam Bradford's future best friend. Tune into ESPN2 on Friday February 4th at 7:00PM EST.

    TUSCALOOSA -- Former Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones will compete in the 13th annual All-Star Football Challenge on Feb. 4. The event will feature 12 players competing in a skills challenge to be broadcast on ESPN2.

    The individual skills challenges are: quarterback accuracy, hands competition, linebacker obstacle course and linemen strength challenge. The program will conclude with a final team competition.

    Jones recently announced he would forgo his senior season at Alabama and enter his name in the NFL draft scheduled for April 28-30.

    ***

    The competitors

    Quarterback: Andy Dalton, TCU; Jake Locker, Washington; Ryan Mallett, Arkansas

    Running back/wide receivers: Julio Jones, Alabama; Austin Pettis, Boise State; Jordan Todman, Connecticut

    Linebackers: Ross Homan, Ohio State; Von Miller, Texas A&M; Kelvin Sheppard, LSU

    Defensive linemen: Sam Acho, Texas; Nick Fairley, Auburn; Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue

    Thats pretty sweet. I probably won't get to watch, stuck here at college and all, but if someone uploads it to a website, I'd love a heads up

    another thing that i like about this is the fact that, if he is competing in just an all-star type game, he will surely be competing in Indy in 3 weeks at the combine....which then again could be a bad thing for the Rams, but I am real excited to watch him in Indy and on Friday

    Julio will be in Indy.

    I sent Julio this tweet:

    Julio Replied:

    Looking forward to it. I've been on the Julio bandwagon since the middle of the season... just as excited about his blocking skills as I am about bringing in a legit yards after catch threat!

    \yeah, the top prospects always go to arizona for a camp and they get paid to instruct the camp while training for combine as well....few pass up this big pay day where companies and agents are all present
