Bio: 
Four-year starter who earned All-SWAC honors in each of his freshman, junior and senior seasons. Was named 2013 SWAC Freshman of the Year. Received an invite to the Shrine Game and finished with five tackles.
Pos: 
Small-school defensive end who projects to inside linebacker at the next level. Breaks down well and displays solid change of direction as well as a closing burst. Forceful up the field, plays tough, hard-nosed football and gives effort. Stacks well against the run, shows dominance in the box and holds his ground against blocks.
Neg: 
Struggles in coverage or making plays in reverse. Not a great pursuit linebacker.
Analysis: 
Jones was a solid pass rusher on the small-school level then went to the Shrine Game this past January and looked good at inside linebacker. He’s a tough and nasty two-down defender who also adds a special-teams dimension to his game.
