Jones hopes to be picked in first round

Georgia Bulldogs junior safety Reshad Jones said Monday he will enter the next NFL draft.

Jones said he and linebacker Rennie Curran plan to have a teleconference Tuesday to announce their intentions.

Jones said Curran told him he is very likely to announce he will also enter the NFL draft.

"I feel like I've done everything I can do at Georgia," Jones said. "I'm physically and mentally ready. I bring passion to the game and also versatility, because I can play both free and strong safety."

Jones, 6 feet 2, 212 pounds, said he is projected by most as a second round pick but believes he can work himself into the first round.
