Overview:

Jones had a really good career at UW, where he posted 145 tackles, 9 interceptions, and 30 pass breakups. He has good speed, gives his front 7 enough time to get to the quarterback due to his superb cover skills, he has proven to be a hard hitter, he is also a disruptive defenders, and he is a play maker on defense. He is a bit on the light side. Due to an injury to his leg during his pro day, I feel like he will slip a bit, but I still fully expect Jones to be a day 2 pick, going somewhere in the mid 2nd, to early 3rd round are.
