QB / RB / WR / TE / OT / OG / OC / DE / DT / OLB / ILB / CB / FS / SS

WR Dwight Jones
Height: 6’4
Weight: 225 lbs.
Projection: 1st-2nd Round
Grade: 7.5 (Grading Scale)

Great size…NFL ready body…Gets off the line very well…Effective after the catch using his size and strength to over power smaller defenders…very physical route runner, he is no afraid to battle down the field or at the line…Uses his size well to shield defenders from the ball…Has surprising acceleration out of his stance for a WR his size…Tracks the ball exceptionally well down the field and really knows how to high point it…Sells his route fakes well often getting the DB to commit to the fake before he breaks out of it.

Body catcher more than a hands catcher…Allows too many balls to get into his body as opposed to snatching them with his hands…Doesn’t have the deep speed to burn the faster CB’s…Despite his dominating size, only an adequate blocker…Needs to clean up his footwork getting into and out of breaks…Needs to gain a better awareness for the coverage he is facing…Too often he fails to recognize zone coverage and misses an opportunity for an easy pitch and catch.

Film Room Notes:
Jones v. Miami
Jones v. Clemson
