2011 NFL Combine: Julio Jones Did That With A Broken Foot

NFL Network's Charley Casserly reports that Julio Jones needs surgery after performing at Combine with foot fracture.less than a minute ago via Seesmic Desktop

Make sure you read that correctly. Julio Jones put up those eye popping numbers with a broken foot.  Again, he didn't break his foot at the combine.  His foot was already broken.  He will now have surgery to have a screw inserted in his foot.  It is apparently the same procedure Michael Crabtree had done before the 2009 draft.

You may have already guessed it, but I am completely on board with Hal's plan to draft Julio at #8 to load up the offense.  Can you imagine the firepower the Titans would have with Kenny Britt on one side and Julio on the other?  That would also give them two excellent down field blockers for Chris Johnson.  Draft Andy Dalton in the second and sign spend the next 5 rounds on defense.  2011 might be rough, but you would have a young nucleus of studs on offense and could build the defense in the 2012 draft.
