Overview:

Jones has great size, he gets a good oush, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He is a solid run stuffer, and tackling machine. I believe he can play in either a 3-4, as an End, or nose tackle, and in a 4-3, as a DE. On the other side, he is on a bit slow, he also has issues with fast backs, and is not known for getting to the QB, and bringing him down. With all that said, Jonee to me is a 2nd-3rd round pick.
