BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who lined up in a three-point stance as a senior after playing outside linebacker the prior two seasons.
Senior totals included 78/14/7 after 72/4/2 as a junior. All-Conference selection last season.
POSITIVES: "Athletic defensive front seven player effective in pursuit. Breaks down well, chases the action hard, and quickly changes
direction or redirects to ball carriers. Remains disciplined with assignments, quickly gets back to playing form off the initial
block and a solid open field tackler. Flows well laterally, making plays out to the flanks and goes sideline-to-sideline chasing
the action. Shows the ability to run with tight ends in coverage and make plays in pass defense."
NEGATIVES: Lacks a great first step out of a three-point stance. Controlled at the point by opponents and turned off the ball.
ANALYSIS: "Jones is an athletic prospect who's best suited to play outside linebacker in the NFL. He's a developmental prospect who
must complete his game, yet he has a real chance to make an NFL roster as a linebacker."
