Scouting Report on John Jones

by JC Shurburtt - 08/08/2006
Very athletic. Long arms are a plus because he’s quick with them and knows how to use them to knock down passes, punch the ball away from opposing ball carriers and grab parts of uniforms to make tackles. Quickness off the edge makes him dangerous in pass rushing situations. Needs to add bulk if he’s going to play defensive end. Could play outside linebacker, too. Would still need to add some weight, but not as much. He can change direction well and fly to the football and likely will be a guy that causes offenses all sorts of trouble if he lines up at different spots.
