Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones believes that he will be picked early in the first round of the NFL draft tomorrow.

Outside linebacker Jarvis Jones has said that he expects to be selected early in the first round of this year's NFL draft.

The Georgia Bulldogs player is one of the top-rated college football linebackers looking to enter the NFL this year.

The 23-year-old told NFL.com: "If I even get to 17, I don't think I get past the [Pittsburgh] Steelers. I mean, from what I've been told, I don't think I get past the Steelers.

"Then you got the people that do the mock drafts, they say I'm way down here, I talk to the coaches, all the coaches don't think I'm gonna get past a certain point, so, coaches, for me personally, the coaches are on something different than all the analysts on TV at home. So, for me, I'm listening to the coaches because they're the ones that have the draft picks."

Jones was named the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year in 2012, having recorded 84 tackles, 14.5 sacks, an interception and seven forced fumbles in 12 games for Georgia last season.
