Player Scouting Report
Players Scouting Reviewer :
Position :Cornerback [CB]
Very good playing speed
Does a nice job staying with receivers after jamming them
Fluid hips and smooth transitioning out of backpedal
Excellent recovery instincts
Excels in man coverage
Also good in zone
An injury at his workouts will force him to miss 2017
High character, high effort guy
Some of the cleanest tape in this years class
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.
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.
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.
