Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is regarded as one of the most coveted commodies in this year's draft due to his pass rush skills.

But a report from ProFootballTalk says some teams are concerned about the condition of Jones' neck. Jones has spinal stenosis, which could scare some teams off of him with a high pick.

Usually with players who have some sort of injury risk, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So some team will grab Jones, and it will probably be with a high pick as long as the team's medical staff is confident that the neck condition won't be a major issue.
