FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones gives position coach Terry Robiskie a lot of credit for helping him make the Pro Bowl in his second season.
If you catch a glimpse of Jones standing on the sideline during games, he's usually talking with Robiskie.
That's because Robiskie, with 30-plus years of NFL coaching experience, is rarely surprised by any move or decision Jones might attempt.
Jones is talented enough that the Falcons made a splashy trade during the 2011 draft to move up and take him No. 6 overall, but he believes there are many nuances that he must learn to become an elite player.
Jones says he appreciates that Robiskie ``doesn't sugarcoat anything,'' no matter the amount of criticism.
Robiskie praises Jones for being approachable and easy to coach.
