Atlanta's rookie wideout Julio Jones made just two catches in the Falcons' thrilling win over the Eagles, but NBC cameras caught him showing off his vertical jump in pregame warm-ups.

Since it's a shot from above, it's impossible to gauge the exact height Jones reached. It seemed like he just would keep going up and up. That sort of athleticism is the exact reason why the Falcons traded up -- and gave up several key draft picks -- to select him.
