Scouting Report: Strengths
  • His motor is excellent, and he’s quick to locate the ball and make plays against the run.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • He’s a high-motor player, and Jones shows good enough hand use, as well as a tight spin move, to win as an edge rusher.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
  • Jones shows impressive burst and enough quickness to occasionally threaten the edge as a pass rusher.
  • He’s flexible enough to bend the edge, and he’s at his best when he can use his quickness and change-of-direction abilities to counter back inside.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Because of his athletic limitations, Jones lacks the ceiling of some of this draft’s top edge rushers
  • With neither elite strength nor elite speed, he lacks one standout trait.
  • Jones has to develop a counter move or two in the pass rush, and he needs to make better use of his hands.
