Travis Jones DT Connecticut Scouting Report

Position rank: 13
40-yard dash time: 5.11-seconds
Height: 6-4, Weight: 333 lbs
Strengths
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • 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.
  • Penetrates through gaps, often forcing running backs to elude him or the back end of the offensive lineman he's pushing before they even reach the line.
  • Has the upper-body strength to rock his opponent back onto his heels.
  • His ability to clog running lanes, however, is a talent highly coveted in the NFL.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to do a better job of being the aggressor and tossing blockers aside.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Plays too high at times, and gets carried downfield or put to the ground by better lineman when losing the leverage battle.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Inconsistent in his ability to separate from blocks, however, making him more of a nuisance than a snap-to-snap terror.
