Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Jones shows limited instincts. He needs work spotting out stunts and blitzes and acting accordingly. He has quick first steps off the ball and getting hands on the defender. His effort is inconsistent and limited. There are times he will get his hands in proper position and use his size to bury defenders, and then there are times when he will stop blocking and his man will pursue to the ball to get in on the tackle.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Jones shows average athleticism. He has the mass and initial quickness to stun defenders at the line. He has poor speed due to his large size. His body control is limited. He stands tall off the line and gets top heavy at contact which leaves him susceptible to swim moves and push-pull moves. He has poor flexibility and bend. Almost all of his bend is coming from his knees, leaving him in a very unathletic position. That bend does not allow him to move laterally well when facing more athletic edgre rushers. He shows limited play strength due to poor punch position, letting defenders get inside leverage. This affects his ability to maintain the width of the pocket in the pass rush as well.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Jones carries a massive frame with average technical skills which have allowed him to be a solid tackle in college. His run blocking is poor due to lack of knee bend and proper footwork once engaged. His initial pass set is average but his lnconsistent strike and quickness gets him beat a lot. The lack of athleticism can make climbing to the second level a struggle when it comes to breaking down against more athletic linebackers. His overall size and strength once engaged with the defender is very promising as he can absolutely move people. He will be a bit of a project before he is ready to play.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Jones was Honorable Mention All Big Ten in 2019. He is a massive tackle that shows promising traits to his game. He initially projects as a backup tackle who will have to earn his spot in camp. He will need to work on overall athleticism, specifically footwork and mobility.
