03/05/2013 - Chris Jones spent time at the NFL combine, and all he got was a lousy t-shirt. Well, that's not entirely true: Jones actually received three t-shirts. One had, "Most Important Job Interview" written on the front, while a second said, "Now or Never," and the third had, "NFL Scouting Combine." But Jones, a senior defensive tackle on the Bowling Green State University football team, said going to the combine was about more than collecting clothes. "It was the most interesting event in my life," he said. "To be blessed enough to be invited and participate in it was awesome. "Even though it was stressful, I would definitely do it again. I was glad I was able to come from Bowling Green and put our name out there. ... I tried to represent myself and Bowling Green at the highest standard so that guys in the future have a chance [to participate]."

Last season, Jones ranked among the top defensive tackles in Division I football, earning All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America. Jones was the Mid-American Conference defensive player of the year this past season after posting 42 tackles, including 19 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks, to lead the Falcons to an 8-5 record, a 6-2 MAC mark and a berth in the Military Bowl.

Jones was training at school in preparation for the NFL draft when he received the invitation to participate in the combine in late January. The 6-2, 302-pound native of Brownsburg, Ind., went to the IMG Academy in Brandenton, Fla., for three weeks to prepare for the combine. - John Wagner, The Toledo Blade
