2013 NFL Draft: Decision a tough one for Jarvis Jones

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Jarvis Jones entering the NFL may be a no-brainer, but the decision is still a hard one for the Georgia outside linebacker.

Georgia Bulldogs outside linebacker Jarvis Jones may be a no-brainer pick for the top end of the 2013 NFL Draft, but that doesn't mean the decision to leave college and enter the professional leagues is an easy one. As noted by Seth Emerson of Macon.com, Jones thoroughly enjoys his time in college, and would prefer it to the NFL.

"I wish this could be my NFL career and play how long I want to in college, just to be here every day," he said. "That'll be fine. And just be around these guys all the time."

But playing in college doesn't make you any money. The piece's introduction notes that Jones still depends on his teammate, Malcolm Mitchell, for rides. Mitchell is a sophomore, and has nowhere near the honors that Jones, a two-time All-American, has earned himself.

Jones says that he wants to support and give back to his mother, his nieces and nephews. To do that, he'll have to make the jump to the next level in the NFL, like many figure he will as soon as the season is over. Still, it's pretty clear that the decision is never as cut-and-dry as it might seem.
