Despite a poor showing at his Pro Day, University of Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones has had several visits lined up with NFL teams. According to his Twitter account, Jones will stop in to see the Saints on Sunday.

The Saints must have a genuine interest in Jones because they also spent a great deal of time with him at UGA's Pro Day, with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan keeping a watchful eye on the defensive prospect.

Jones, though, had a less than stellar performance, running a 4.85 40-yard dash, looking stiff in drills, and actually falling down on one. But analysts and scouts have returned to look at the game tape on Jones, which show him making vicious plays.

During his two years at the University of Georgia and one year at the University of Southern California Jones had a total of 155 tackles, 44 for a loss, 28 sacks, 1 interception, and 9 forced fumbles.
