This is an easy pick. Julio Jones would be chosen on probably every single NFL roster as one of the two players to build a franchise around. Jones is just 26 years old and would be the number one receiver on my franchise team. It doesn’t matter who is throwing him the ball. Jones makes quarterbacks look good, not the other way around.

Jones has had injuries in his past, but isn’t injury prone. Jones has had a case of bad luck with the injuries he has sustained, but they did not effect him in any way in 2014. Jones narrowly missed the league lead in receiving yards and had one of the best averages per catch as well.
