BIO: Played 48 games with the first team in college. All-Conference selection in ‘03 after posting 72 tackles. Totaled 90 tackles as a junior, after 82 tackles as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized, run-stuffing safety best in the box. Breaks down well, quick-moving up the field and flies around the football. Fights to get off blocks and wrap-up tackling. Competitor who rallies his teammates.
NEGATIVES: Indecisive in pass coverage and usually a half step late arriving on the scene.
ANALYSIS: Jones is sized well for a safety but has poor speed, which will make it difficult for him at the next level and his deficient pass-cover skills almost knock him out of the box.
