Texas A&M cornerback Jaylon Jones selected No. 221 overall in the 2023 NFL draft by Indianapolis Colts
And that officially makes it three Aggies heading to the NFL! With the No. 221 pick in the seventh round of the 2023 draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected Texas A&M cornerback Jaylon Jones.
Jones spent three seasons with the Maroon and White, appearing in 29 games and tallying 98 tackles (72 solo) with 12 pass breakups, three interceptions, and one fumble recovery. He’s a big, long cornerback with imposing size though as he transitions to the NFL, he’ll look to continue to refine his footwork and route anticipation.
Indianapolis finished 11th in pass defense in 2022 (209.9 YPG allowed), and while Jones may not enter the door on day one with a chance to compete to be a starter, you can’t script a more ideal situation for him to develop his skills.
A big congratulations to Jones as well as the Colts, who will surely benefit from his physical skill set and tenacity in press coverage. Gig’Em!
