Jones Dons Uniform for First Time


If you've been busting at the seams to see Julio Jones in a Falcons uniform, your wait is over.

During the 2011 NFL Rookie Premiere last week, the rookie wide receiver donned a Falcons uniform for the first time as Topps held a photo shoot for some of the most anticipated members of the 2011 NFL Draft class.

The Topps official Facebook account posted a gallery of some behind-the-scenes action and here's what they posted that included Jones. Click each image to see it larger and view the Topps Facebook gallery from the 2011 NFL Rookie Premiere:




Here he is, off to the right of Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert — also No. 11.

While we're on the subject of Jones, the official blog of Panini America wrote about Jones' autograph being their favorite of any of the 36 rookies at the Premiere. It is pretty sweet.
