UConn’s Byron Jones Destroys Jamie Collins’ Broad Jump Record (Video)


Byron Jones might be the most explosive athlete to ever compete in the NFL Scouting Combine.

The UConn cornerback broke the combine record for the broad jump with a 12-foot, 3-inch leap. The previous combine record belonged to now-New England Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins, who jumped 11-7.

Jones also posted a ridiculous 44.5-inch vertical jump.

The 6-foot-1, 199-pound cornerback won’t run the 40-yard dash, since he’s still recovering from surgery for a torn labrum. Jones is No. 50 on the draft rankings of NFL Media’s Daniel Jeremiah.
