Analysis

Strengths

Play speed is better than timed speed. Has ability to get off the line of scrimmage and into top gear quickly. Sinks hips and gets bend into his breaks for crisp cuts. Posted solid numbers in short-area quickness drills at NFL Scouting Combine. Returned punts and kickoffs during his time in college, finishing with four return touchdowns. Decisive kick returner with adequate vision.

Weaknesses

Undersized wide receiver lacking bulk and strength to hold up outside. Can eat up cushion off snap, but doesn't convert quickness into deep separation. Labors to make contested catches. Failed to become consistent factor in Alabama passing game. Managed just 8 bench-press reps at combine. Attempts to be positional blocker, but often off field in running situations.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Average wide receiver with a smallish frame and below-average strength for the position. Jones won't beat many defenses over the top, but he does have the ability to create separation underneath and will be able to lean on his experience as a kick and punt returner to give himself a better chance of making a roster than if he were a pass-catcher only.
