BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors every year every season since his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Undersized yet explosive center who gets the most from his abilities. Quickly gets into blocks, moves well on his feet, and
displays ability blocking in motion. Immediately gets his hands into defenders, jolts them with good punch, and can adjust
or redirect to oncoming defenders. Displays footwork in space and can slide laterally in pass protection. Does an outstanding
job with the shotgun snap. Built low to the ground and gets leverage on opponents.
NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk, height, and possesses just marginal playing strength. Pushed off the line by defenders, and only effective blocking
on the move.
ANALYSIS: Jones has been a durable and productive small-school lineman, yet lacks the measurables to truly be effective at the next
level. He offers possibilities as a utility backup for a zone-blocking system.
