NAME: Jordan Jones
JERSEY: No. 34
RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star
WT: 221 lbs
PROS: Uber-aggressive mindset. Wants to play in the other team’s backyard. Triggers downhill at the first sign of a key. Brings it as a blitzer and will work to get off blocks. Ideal length, size and frame for the position. Solid mental processor who won’t make a lot of assignment errors. Motor always runs hot. Plays with great natural bend and feet that are always active, making him tough to pin down cleanly at the second level.
CONS: Dog chasing cars at times. Can get overly-aggressive and get caught up in the wash. Runs into his own linemen at times. Misses too many stops. Questionable angles when pursuing ball carriers laterally. Lacks hitting power. Average athlete, struggles to change directions quickly and gets exposed in space too often. At his best moving in a linear fashion. Range is decent, but nothing special. Consistently a step or two late in zone coverage. Could be limited to 2-down work in the NFL. Can be carried off by blockers. Instincts are lacking, much more of a see-it than feel-it defender.
