WR Julio Jones
It was nearly nine months ago that we learned Julio will be out for the 2013 season. Reports have him making solid progress, and he’s even confident enough to say that the injury has made him stronger. If Julio can stay healthy for an entire 16 games, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least to see him shatter some Atlanta Falcons records.
When healthy, veteran Roddy White is another threat on the opposite side who can routinely draw attention, making life a bit easier for Jones. Julio has already been thinking about being the league’s best wideout, and the likes of ESPN and NFL Network still consider Atlanta’s receivers a, if not the, top duo. It’s time for Jones to take the next step.
