Naquan Jones DT Michigan State Draft Profile

Tennessee Titans Signed as an undrafted free agent by Tennessee Titans
Strengths
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
  • Good strength and balance to sit down, lock-out and create a pile, leading to possibilities inside and out (in the 3-4).
  • Strong, stout interior presence who often requires double team blocks to keep him from clogging running lanes. Short, thick legs and thick trunk which aid him in anchoring.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't play fundamentally sound and lacks much technique in his repertoire.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • He remains raw as a pass rusher and doesn't have the foot speed to chase down ballcarriers.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
