Gerald Jones
Position: WR
Class:  4Sr
School: Tennessee
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 5-10
WT: 194
40 Time: 4.58
Biography: Three-year starter who posted career numbers of 55/596/4 as a senior after putting up junior totals of 46/608/4.

Positives: "Reliable college receiver with poor size/speed numbers. Runs solid routes, gets separation from defenders, and effectively adjusts to errant throws. Displays good eye/hand coordination, uses his frame to protect the ball, and shows strong hands with the ability to pull the ball from the air. Comes across the middle, stays inbounds running after the catch, and works to pick up positive yardage. Gives effort blocking."

Negatives: One-speed receiver who lacks a burst. Occasionally lets the ball get inside him.

Analysis: Jones was productive on the college level yet lacks the size/speed numbers to be anything more than a fifth receiver in the NFL.

Projection: FA
