  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Jones awaits NFL Draft results

As the football team concluded its spring training, senior defensive tackle Chris Jones was watching and waiting to see his future.

Jones, the star of the Falcons defense this past fall, will be waiting and hoping to hear his name called for the NFL Draft.

Jones was the only BG player to compete in the NFL Combine in Feburary, and has some optimistic reviews on playing on Sundays.

The senior finished the season with 12.5 sacks and lead the nation for three weeks — enough to earn him MAC Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Only 10 MAC players have ever been drafted in the first round and this year Eric Fisher, from Central Michigan, was drafted number one overall — the first time a MAC player was chosen first ever.

Jones earned an overall grade of 55.3 out of a perfect 100. He was the 17th best performer in his position while nursing an injury.

He will likely not pick up the phone tonight to accept a draft offer, and will likely go late sixth or seventh round. Those rounds are Saturday.
