That Jarvis Jones was a pretty good linebacker.
After transferring from USC following the 2009 season and sitting out all of 2010, Jones became a terror for SEC offenses. The two-time All-American with the Bulldogs set the SEC record for tackles for loss per game (2.04) in 2012. He finished the season with 24.5 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks. In his debut season, the ravenous pass-rusher totaled an SEC-high 13.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss. Jones finished his Georgia career with 155 tackles, including 91 for loss, and was also a very solid player in coverage for the Dawgs.
I think that 91 tackles for loss is a misprint. Even if I add his sacks and TFLs for those two seasons together, all I can come up with is a total of 72. But those numbers are still ridiculous. If you doubt that, check out the TFLs and sacks for the other four players on Aschoff’s list. No one else is close. And, yes, I get the bit about different schemes and different responsibilities, but ridiculous is still ridiculous.
Jones made Grantham look a lot smarter in 2012 than he did in 2013, that’s for sure.
