Scouting Report: Strengths
- Jones 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 Jones gets his hands on the ball.
- Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
- A very quick and very confident cover corner plays bigger than his listed size when lined up in press coverage, delivering quick, surprisingly powerful punches and using his natural quickness and change-of-direction ability to mirror on underneath routes.
- Instincts are outstanding, and he does an excellent job in route recognition.
- Instinctive, adept at reading routes and anticipating throws, and strong in zone coverage.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Lacks a physical element to his game, and Jones doesn’t have a frame that can carry a lot of weight. He’ll get outmuscled at the top of routes by bigger receivers.
- Is undersized and underpowered when lining up in press coverage. Jones simply lacks power in his punch.
- Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
- Better in press coverage than in off coverage, when he can look shaky and unsure when transitioning out of his backpedal. He’ll give up throws underneath.
