Myles Jones 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Background: 

  • 2019 recipient of Aggies’ Defensive Most Improved and Defensive Strength awards
  • 2021 named Aggies’ Top Conditioned Athlete for strength and conditioning
  • Suffered season-ending leg injury after playing in two games in 2021 

System: 

  • Scheme tendencies: Multi-front with blended coverages 
  • 2022 projected role: Starting CB 

Pros: Myles Jones is a long and rangy corner that projects well to playing zone coverage in the NFL. He has the length necessary to restrict throwing windows and it also shows up in his ability to finish tackles outside of this frame. Jones is an effective press corner when he does well to get his hands on receivers early to disrupt route timing while making sure he remains balanced. I like Jones’ temperament as a run defender and he isn’t passive when there are opportunities to be physical. Overall, Jones has good coverage instincts and isn’t often fooled by route combinations. He’s an experienced player that has spent some time at safety in addition to playing outside corner. He has quick feet and good play speed for a corner of his stature. 

Cons: Myles Jones is coming off a season-ending injury and will turn 25 years old during his rookie season in the NFL. While he is long and rangy, he’s also high-hipped, which leads to segmented and leggy transitions. Jones has challenges playing tight through transitions and not allowing separation out of breaks while requiring cushion to make sure receivers don’t get behind him. Jones may project best as a situational slot safety that can be used to match up with bigger slots and tight ends in coverage.
