The Falcons traded their first, second and fourth-round picks in 2011 and a first and fourth in 2012 to Cleveland to move up from the #27 pick to the #6 pick to select Georgia WR Julio Jones.

“I know they have great defense with (Brian) Urlacher and everybody,’’ Jones said during Game 3 of the Bulls-Hawks series in Atlanta. “It’s going to be great task for me and my teammates to see what kind of team we’re going to have.

“Growing up, that was a defense I always looked up to. Even when I was little, the Chicago Bears always had a strong defense.’’

“No, I don’t feel pressure at all,’’ Jones said. “I’m just going to come out and contribute to the team to the best of my ability. It’s football. I can’t go out there and be no superhuman. All I can do is go out there and play ball, like I’ve been doing.’’

Jones is scheduled to make his debut against the Bears at Soldier Field on Sept. 11 if the lockout is resolved in time.
