I'm not saying we should absolutely get Julio Jones but his value on being a Top 10-20 seems to be shining brightly. Whatever Devaney decides on the wide receiver situation, I'll hope for the best.
Notes: Yes, those dropped passes are bothering the Tide's Julio Jones

TUSCALOOSA -- Junior wide receiver Julio Jones has dropped passes in each of Alabama's first two games, a problem that plagued him last season when he played hurt. He admitted that the drops bother him.
"I'm so ready to make a play, but I've just got to tone it down some, catch the ball first and then make a play," he said. "I'm hyped up, amped to go, but you can't do anything without the ball. I've just got to look it in all the way to the tuck."
Julio Jones was asked where fellow wide receiver Kevin Norwood learned how to flip into the end zone, as he did following his first career catch for a 36-yard touchdown.
"I think the guy was off-balance," Jones said with a straight face.
Jones was asked what happened to free safety Robert Lester, a Foley High School teammate who recovered a fumble and raced far down the right sideline before he was stripped of the ball.
"A monkey jumped on his back and he just got fatigued," Jones said. "It was a great play, but I think fatigue just set in."
