Austin Jones RB Stanford Scouting Report

Position rank: 21
40-yard dash time: 4.50-seconds
Height: 5-10, Weight: 191 lbs
Strengths
  • Quick feet with good vision to pick through defenses. He has solid hands and body control and is a reliable receiver.
  • Possesses quick feet and straight-line speed but doesn't have the elite burst to be a constant big-play threat. Improving patience as a runner, following pulling guards and makes good decisions on his cut.
  • Flashes initial burst and good lateral quickness to sidestep defenders or bounce runs outside with very good foot quickness. Displays very good feel as an inside and outside runner with above average vision to make sharp cuts - good patience¬∑ and footwork to pick through defenses.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
Weaknesses
  • Offers little in pass protection and poor technique cut blocking, fails to do more than slow down blitzers by laying down in front of them.
  • Does not always read blocks behind pulling guards. May not be big enough to move piles at the next level and has a tendency to bury his head too soon.
  • Does not always show a burst in the box, anticipates contact. Can get I turned easily on draws and inside isolation plays, shuffling and failing to restart momentum. Power in his cuts has been inconsistent. Tripped upon first contact.
  • Has a lean frame and lacks ideal bulk or muscle for the position. Doesn't have great strength, lacking a power element to his game to break many tackles.
  • Too indecisive and hesitant at the line of scrimmage.
