Behind the Scenes with Julio


I know I've given you a steady diet of Julio Jones coverage today, but there's just so much great information out there about him. I posted this morning about the 2011 NFL Rookie Premiere event that took place last week where a whole bunch of rookies donned their new uniforms for the first time.

Julio was looking sharp in his No. 11 jersey, but he also put on the double-zeros for a shoot with Donruss.

The official blog of Panini America has some great behind-the-scenes video of Julio during the shoot. At one point during the shoot, Julio is asked to catch a ball while a photographer tried to snap a photo at just the right moment. Jones gets some coaching from the photog about how his lips look like he's trying to kiss the ball when he's catching it.

Always quick with a great quote, Jones says, "You've got to have something to catch the ball, you know? And I think about kissing it."
