PROS: Dre’Mont Jones is a penetration style player who possesses a number of key traits for success at the next level. Quick first step and ability to get out of the chute quickly will allow for gap penetration and challenges of the mesh point. Has nice awareness of hands when looking to break off of contact, will attack blockers at the wrist or elbow while using length in order to keep separation and a pathway for forward push. Multiple passes batted down in 2017 film, Jones shows nice awareness of when he is and isn’t able to get home and adjusts appropriately to challenge throwing lanes all the same. Natural athleticism and change of direction skills offer hope that a big breakout season is on the horizon. Has the look, feel and requisite skills to be a productive 3T in the NFL.

CONS: Physical offense linemen have beat the tar out of him at the point of attack. Too frequently uprooted at displaced off of the line of scrimmage, offering opposing backs with an obvious rushing lane to work up onto the second level. Needs to stay committed to keeping the pad level down and finding his anchor more quickly when put in head up situations. Has not had a great deal of production, either (1 sack and 9 TFL in 23 career games), although some of that can be attributed to highly competitive DL rotation at Ohio State and so many other teammates logging negative plays. Has won gaps with quickness off the snap but subsequently overrun the line of scrimmage, removing himself from the play instead of looking to redirect and put himself in the pathway of the football. Needs to be more concise with block shedding late in the play, has been very close to a number of tackles at the LOS but never discards the blocker and as a result will see the ball carrier run through a one arm challenge.
