BIO: Two year starter and All-Conference selection who posted 45/14/9 as a senior after career numbers of 62/17/10 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Collegiate pass-rushing defensive end who projects to outside linebacker at the next level. Quick off the snap, plays low with leverage and fast off the edge rushing the passer. Pursues laterally with speed and effectively chases the play from the backside. Fast in any direction, flashes on the scene and moderately effective playing in space.
NEGATIVES: Does not take proper angles to the action. Slow to react and not instinctive. Undersized and easily pushed off the point by a single blocker.
ANALYSIS: Failing to meet expectations as a senior, Jones is a marginal prospect who needs a lot of work on his game. Offers possibilities as a backup and may be best in a 34 defense.
