6'0, 242 pounds | Middle linebacker | Michigan State
Strengths: Is an efficient and technically sound linebacker, but lacks some strength. Can really drive through the ball carrier when he squares up his shoulders and fires ahead. Uses his experience as a pass rusher. Knows how to read a play and determinee where a gap to shoot is going to develop. Even though Michigan State often used him moving forward, Jones is adept at dropping back in zone coverage. he can move around well enough to stay on running backs in the open field. Plays with a ton of heart and hustle. Extremely durable. Team leader.
Final word: Jones is the opposite of flashy. He's not big or overly athletic. In fact, his size will probably scare some teams off completely. What he is, though, is the kind of player a team should be able to plug in and rely on for years. He's technically sounds in all aspects of the game and plays with a high motor. No one will be excited by Jones, but his dependability is immense.
