In a recent ESPN poll, 50 NFL coaches, executives, and players ranked their top 10 choices for each NFL position in 2020. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones landed at No. 1 on the wide receiver list.
One NFL coordinator gave his thoughts on Jones:
“He’s an avatar,” the coach said per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. “There’s only one of him.”
Jones is Project to Lead 2020 in Receiving Yards
Julio is entering his 10th season in Atlanta and is still Matt Ryan’s No. 1 option.
Pro Football Focus most recently created an algorithm in order to project which NFL wide receivers are the best bets to top 1,000 yards in 2020. Jones and even Calvin Ridley made the top 23 list.
Jones stands at the very top of the list with no surprise there. Jones hasn’t finished out of the top three in receiving yards in the past seven seasons. PFF has Jones receiving for 1,628 yards, 234 yards more than he finished in 2019.
