Game #2 of the preseason is only minutes away, and I for one am PUMPED! There are a lot of story lines to watch, and I could bore you with them all, but I am here to preview the one I am watching. I will be tuned in to see Julio Jones vs. AJ Green.
The 2nd year WRs were the top 2 receivers in the 2011 NFL Draft. AJ Green was selected 4th overall, while Julio Jones was selected just 2 picks after. Both the WRs wowed us last season, putting up stellar rookie numbers. AJ Green finished with 1,057 receptions and 7 TDs, and Julio finished with 959 yards and 8 TDs. If you would like to see what I expect out of Julio Jones, click here. I expect, from AJ Green, about the same numbers as I do from Julio.
Today, I am looking forward to seeing how the two looked compared to each other. AJ Green reminds me of Roddy White and Calvin Johnson type of receiver, while Julio reminds me of a Mike Wallace type of guy, but with more of a red zone threat than Wallace. The athleticism by both is incredible, and am going to love seeing the two play on the same field.
