This is the second game of the 2012 preseason I am reviewing. Here is a link to the first one I did, on the Redskins vs Bills. The Learning Curve is a series that will recap what I learned in every NFL preseason game, and could possibly extend into the regular season.
1. The sky is the limit for second-year wide receiver Julio Jones. In one quarter of work on Thursday, Jones exploded for six receptions, 109 yards, and a seven yard touchdown. While he is just in his second NFL season, I think he has the skill-set to post the best numbers for a receiver in the NFL this season, and I can't say that about many others. Jones is a prototypical receiver with incredible length and athleticism. Other than Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson (when healthy), Jones could be the most difficult receiver to cover in man-to-man because of his incredible catch radius. I'm very excited for Jones this season.
