This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.

Dwight Jones, North Carolina
Ht: 6'4, Wt: 220 pounds

Strengths: A big, physical receiver with excellent size. Developing as a route runner. Isn't asked to run complex routes that frequently and tends to round off his cuts. A high-point catching wide receiver. Really attacks the ball in the air.

Weaknesses: Shows a decent burst to get off the line of scrimmage. Struggles at times to get off the line when he's jammed. Needs to learn better disengage techniques. There isn't a lot of wiggle to Jones' game. He doesn't generate a lot of yards after the catch if he has to elude defenders.
