Part of our pre-draft coverage concerning our Baker's Dozen is delving into each of the 13 prospects' character - both on and off the field. We're starting our character scouting reports with Julio Jones, which may not be the best way to do this, because unlike some of the other players we'll cover - hello, Mr. Heisman - there's just not a lot to report with Jones. Which is probably a good thing.
Matt will have more on Jones' character in an interview with Roll Bama Roll tomorrow morning, but consider this: Jones played on an offense that featured the run, yet never complained about his role, instead developing his excellent run blocking skills. He maintains a very low profile off the field, and is not the rah-rah type on it. If the so-called "diva receiver" exists, Jones is the polar opposite. He's a gamer, and anyone taking him will have absolutely no qualms about the person they're drafting.
So while we're off to a good start in our character scouting series, subsequent posts will cary much more meaning - and be far more controversial.
Coming tomorrow in our Baker's Dozen series: Julio Jones from an Alabama fan perspective; a look at Nick Fairley's character.
