BIO: Led the team as a senior with 116/13/2.5. Registered 94/14/6 as a junior after 60/11/4 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Productive collegiate defender with the timed speed to make plays in all areas of the field. Quick to diagnose in run defense, breaks down well and slips blocks getting to the action. Displays a closing burst and stacks well against the run. Disciplined, takes good angles to the action and remains with his assignments.
NEGATIVES: Hesitant in pass coverage, lacks the quick change of direction and slowed through the trash laterally. Does not always play to his size-speed numbers.
ANALYSIS: Jones has the speed and skills to be used at the weak-side linebacker position in the NFL but must become more effective playing in reverse. May be better off on the outside in a three-four defense.
