Conference: Missouri Valley
40 Time: 4.51
Biography: Junior-college transfer and All-Conference selection the past two seasons. Senior totals included a school record for receptions with numbers of 77/790/6. Junior totals included 31/510/7.
Positives: Smooth, fluid receiver with a nice. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and uses his frame to shield away opponents. Keeps the play in bounds running after the reception trying to pick up positive yardage. Effortlessly makes the reception downfield, catching the ball in stride and comes back to the pass out of breaks.
Negatives: Unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him then clutches pass against his frame, gathers into tackles running after the reception and does not show great awareness on the field.
Analysis: Jones has watched his game steadily improve the past two seasons. He is a well-sized receiver whose best football is ahead of him. Jones must continue on his path of improvement but could find his way onto a roster as a fourth or fifth receiver.
