Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Gives great effort in run support, sticking his nose in as a tackler, and should be able to contribute as a special teamer covering kicks.
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • Willing in run support, coming downhill quickly when Jones has a chance to make a play.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • He’s excellent in run support, a physical hitter who could also get a look at safety
  • In the run game, he’s aggressive coming downhill and a sure tackler.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • Has a high backpedal and loses a step in transition. Plays with adequate speed but there are concerns about his ability to handle the truly explosive speedsters of the NFL.
  • Gave up far too many big plays in college, especially concerning since Jones has recovery speed to make up for missteps.
