Projected Round
Four-year starter who totaled 16 touchdowns (five rushing) and 14 interceptions in 2016, completing 64.4 percent of his passes and throwing for 2,186 yards. Named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt in both 2014 and 2015. Threw for 2,517 yards and 14 touchdowns with 10 interceptions and added 583 yards and 10 scores on the ground as a junior. Tossed a career-best 22 touchdowns as a sophomore against seven interceptions, completing 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,670 yards and adding six rushing touchdowns to go with 539 rushing yards. Started seven games as a true freshman with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.
Athletic quarterback who throws with poor fundamentals. Effectively commands and controls the offense, senses the rush in the pocket and steps up to avoid defenders. Sells ball fakes, remains poised and knows where receivers are on the field. Elusive, easily escapes the rush and can pick up yardage with his feet. Possesses a quick release, puts air under deep throws and shows relatively good accuracy on crossing patterns.
Lacks pocket stature and cannot withstand the rush. Does not consistently throw the ball with proper footwork. Throws too many interceptions.
Jones was a terrific college quarterback who does not project well to the next level.
