You move your knees and weight a little too far back as the bar moves past the knees and you're leaned over a bit too far at that point, which makes you rock forward as you finish the pull. That's why you're jumping forward.

You're also slowing down in the middle of the pull - keep the bar moving at constant speed or even accelerating slightly until you hit the gas for the final explosion.

Try jumping backward a half inch - I mean move your entire body and the bar, not just your feet.
