Georgia receiver A.J. Green and Jones are expected to be the top receivers selected April 28 in the first round of the NFL draft. The 49ers will be in the market for a receiver, but it seems unlikely they would pick a receiver at No. 7 with so many other urgent needs. Two years ago, the 49ers selected Michael Crabtree at 10th overall.
Jones visited the St. Louis Rams on Thursday. The Rams, who own the No. 14 overall pick, are seen as a possible destination for Jones to team with quarterback Sam Bradford. But the Rams might have to trade up to get him

"I played in a pro-set at Alabama." Jones said at the combine. "They taught me a lot, how to block and everything else. I played (in a) West Coast (system) in high school, so I'm pretty versatile. I can pretty much do anything."Jones (6-2 34, 220 pounds) played three seasons at Alabama with Greg McElroy as his quarterback. In 2010, Jones caught 78 passes for 1,133 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games.
