Scouting Report on Chad Jones

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Jones has good size and excellent speed for a safety and has the frame to grow into a linebacker if needed. He’s still very raw and gets by on solid instincts and athleticism. Jones is most effective at strong safety and is solid in run support with his quickness and pursuit abilities. Not a huge hitter, Jones is a wrapup tackler who is persistent in pursuit and does a good job of keeping clear of blockers. If he gets locked up he has a bit of trouble but he’s adept at diving to make tackles even when bottled up. Jones is a tremendous athlete and is very long. He becomes a weapon when intercepting a pass or recovering a fumble with impressive elusiveness.
