Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Shows the click-and-close ability to backpedal and the ball skills to make plays. Jones has loose hips to go along with good top-end speed, and Jones can flip around to turn and run in coverage.
  • Can track the ball downfield and gets his head around when playing in a trail position, and he shows excellent ball skills when breaking on a route. He’s a plus tackler in run support as well.
  • He has the straight-line speed to recover. His ball skills are tremendous, with good hands and the potential to take it to the house any time he gets his hands on the ball.
  • Can get up under a receiver’s chin and has the speed to flip his hips and run downfield. He has the quick and surprisingly powerful hands to jostle receivers early. But he’s at his best peeking into the backfield.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Jones has good size and is a fluid mover, capable of mirroring quickness underneath
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Despite his size, he’s not an overly physical tackler. Jones might have to add some weight at the next level in order to become more physical.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • Feet aren’t ideal, as Jones gets sloppy in his backpedal and can be sluggish when transitioning to close on the ball.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. 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.
