Strengths
Size, athleticism, and speed set Jones apart. Does a nice job defending the ball in the air; very consistent in his backpedal and fluid in transition. Has excellent recovery speed and instincts.
Weaknesses
Isn't at his best when asked to play physical football. Injury to his Achilles tendon at his pro-day will cause him to drop.
Overall Analysis
Jones would have been a top ten selection had he not gotten injured. His athleticism and consistent fundamentals stand out on tape. Sadly he will fall to the third or fourth round but Jones has the ability to be a shut down corner back should he return to his pre-injury form.
