Bio: 
Four-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and led UTEP in tackles in each of his final three seasons. Led the team with 10.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and three forced fumbles and made 102 tackles in 2017. Earned Second Team All-Conference USA honors and posted 93 tackles (six for loss) and 2.5 sacks as a junior. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and posted team highs with 14.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in addition to 93 tackles in 2015. Recorded 54 tackles with a team-high nine tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks as a redshirt freshman.
Pos: 
Productive four-year starter with size limitations. Plays with quickness, easily changes direction and immediately alters his angle of attack. Stays with the action, chases plays hard and has a solid closing burst. Breaks down well, quickly moves in every direction and constantly flies around the action to make tackles.
Neg: 
Has a thin frame. Easily knocked from the action and taken from plays. Marginal production in coverage.
Analysis: 
Jones was ignored by NFL scouts entering the season, but on film he’s an active linebacker who is constantly around the ball and makes positive plays. He lacks great size but has enough ability to back up on the inside of a 3-4 alignment and should lend a helping hand on special teams.
