Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Jones has ability as a blitzer, with the length and flexibility to get around the edge.
  • Handles misdirection well with quick change-of-direction ability. Comes downhill quickly against the run when Jones has an open lane.
  • He’s effective in pursuit when chasing down backs as a run defender, and he has the athleticism to cover a lot of ground when dropping into coverage.
  • Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
  • Tougher between the tackles than many expect. Fluid and quick drop into zone, covers enough ground to be Tampa-2 "MIKE" and knows where the markers are.
  • Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’ll need to be covered up to be effective. He’s not the kind of guy you can line up in the pass rush and have him bend the edge; he’s limited to shooting through gaps.
  • While Jones moves well laterally, he doesn’t always get there in pursuit.
  • Jones doesn’t play with the functional strength and physicality to fight through blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to maximize his playmaking.
