Bio: 
Two-year starter who tallied 33 tackles (two for loss) and 1.5 sacks in 2016. Ranked fifth on the team with 55 tackles (seven for loss) and notched three sacks as a junior. Totaled 32 tackles (two for loss) and one sack in his first two seasons at Arizona after transferring from Fort Scott Community College, where he redshirted.
Pos: 
Hard-working defensive back with average size and poor speed. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, quickly makes his way up the field and chases hard to make plays. Physical, displays a burst to the ball carrier and aggressively lays his shoulders into opponents.
Neg: 
Not a strong wrap-up tackler. Average ball skills. Displays little in the way of closing and recovery speed.
Analysis: 
Jones was a solid college safety but has physical limitations and is a prospect who must stand out on special teams to make a Sunday roster.
