Draft Profile: Bio

Emery Jones Jr. hails from Baton Rouge and attended Catholic High School, where he excelled in both football and basketball. At Catholic High, he was a cornerstone of a dominant offense, leading his team to back-to-back Division I state titles in 2020 and 2021. His high school accolades include twice being named to the 5A first team All-State and first team all-district.

Since joining LSU, Jones has been a key player on the offensive line, starting every game since his true freshman year in 2022. He has earned numerous accolades, including True Freshman All-America (2022), Freshman All-SEC (2022), Second-Team All-SEC (2023), and SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week (2023). Jones played a crucial role in LSU's offensive success, helping the team average 39.8 points and 496.6 total yards per game over his two seasons. He was also instrumental in Jayden Daniels winning the Heisman Trophy and setting the SEC record for total offense per game.

In 2023, Jones started 12 games at right tackle, playing a total of 708 snaps. He helped LSU's offensive line become a finalist for the Joe Moore Offensive Line of the Year Award. His performance in games like the comeback win over Missouri and the victory against Florida showcased his ability to dominate at the highest level of college football.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Exceptional flexibility and knee bend, allowing him to handle edge rushers with speed and bend.
  • Patient and deliberate, dictating the speed of the game with high football IQ.
  • Massive punch with strong, firm hands that deliver a real shock value in pass protection.
  • Excellent leverage and grip strength, consistently controlling defenders once engaged.
  • Strong initial punch and effective use of long arms in pass protection.
  • Fluid movement and natural balance, light on his feet considering his size.
  • Powerful anchor strength, thanks to core strength and flexibility, reminiscent of Tyler Smith.
  • Powerful run blocker who consistently wins at the point of attack with a good burst off the line.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Heavy lower half can make him susceptible to elite speed rushers.
  • Occasionally stops feet after initial contact, allowing defenders to get the corner.
  • Can get too high in his sets, sacrificing power and coordination between upper and lower body.
  • Needs to clean up footwork in the run game and improve hand placement.
  • Inside-striker tendency opens up outside rush lanes, presenting a soft corner for edge rushers.
Scouting Report: Summary

Emery Jones Jr. brings a lot to the table as an NFL prospect. His flexibility and anchor strength make him a reliable pass protector, able to handle some of the best edge rushers in college football. Playing alongside top-rated Will Campbell, he has proven his ability to work cohesively on the line. However, Jones needs to refine his footwork and hand placement to minimize his susceptibility to speed rushers.

While Jones shows tremendous power and leverage in run blocking, his tendency to get too high in his sets can limit his effectiveness. His inside-striker habit opens up outside rush lanes, which he’ll need to adjust at the next level. Despite these areas for improvement, his high football IQ and ability to control the line of scrimmage are significant assets.

Jones projects as a solid NFL starter with the potential to excel in both pass protection and run blocking. He has the tools and physicality to be a standout offensive lineman. With some coaching to fine-tune his technique, Jones could develop into a key player on any NFL offensive line, offering a strong presence whether in pass protection or paving the way in the run game.

The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
