Two-year starter who made 70 tackles (9.5 for loss) with 2.5 sacks and three pass breakups in 2016. Junior totals include 40 tackles (four for loss), an interception and three pass breakups. Had 35 tackles (7.5 for loss), 2.5 sacks and four pass breakups as a redshirt freshman in 2014.
Nice sized interior tackle with an inconsistent game. Plays with proper lean and at times impossible to move off the point. Gets leverage on opponents, attracts a lot of attention in the middle of the line and shows the ability to knock blockers from the play. Works his hands throughout the action and flashes athleticism.
Inconsistent get off from the snap. All too often easily controlled by a single blocker. Marginal pass rusher.
Jones offers size and upside potential but will need time to further develop his game before he’s NFL ready.
