It's pretty much a win/win.
I bet some NFL teams would give a crap who Jones is. Instead, he is forced to go do something he doesn't want to do, in order to try and do something he does want to do. It is a big win for the colleges who turn it into a billion dollar a year industry, a big win for the NFL who doesn't have to have a minor league system and a big loss for athletes who truly don't care to go to school, but are forced to.
