Overview

Jones is a big strong safety with good athleticism. He has been a productive starter for Georgia over the past two seasons. Jones has decent range in pursuit but lacks great speed, lateral agility and quickness in man coverage schemes. He is better attacking the line of scrimmage than in space and maybe best in the box. Jones is quick to the fill the alley and shows good pop and power as a tackler. He can over run or not take the proper angle at times and this gets him out of position to maintain leverage on the ball. Jones will drop some balls he should catch and shows average balls skills for the safety position. Jones has enough size and athleticism to be a solid NFL safety but there are concerns that may affect his draft status.

Analysis

Strengths

Jones possesses great overall size, height and bulk for the strong safety position. Has good athleticism and top-end speed. Has the strength and toughness necessary to effectively come up in run support and is comfortable playing down in the box. Is a highly-competitive player. Was a very productive and durability performer for the Bulldogs.

Weaknesses

Jones can be an inconsistent reactor at times, and get cut off by blockers. He is often caught out of position and takes false steps. Occasionally showed inconsistent effort. Needs to play with a better motor. Does not possess adequate ball skills for an NFL free safety and drops catchable interceptions.
