S Chad Jones Scouting Report

S Chad Jones, Louisiana State
Pos. Rank: 7 Grade: 3rd Round Height: 6-2 Weight: 221 40: 4.59 Year: 4-Jr.

The Good: Large, forceful safety with an incomplete game. Effective facing the action, has a burst to the ball, and physically beats down opponents. Delivers crunching blows to ball-carriers, and is a strong open-field tackler. Effective facing the action and displays good hands for the interception. Possesses a quick burst of closing speed.

The Bad: Takes incorrect angles to the action. Marginally instinctive. Does not show great sideline-to-sideline range, and late getting to the flanks.

The Verdict: Jones has the physical skills to play at the next level, but he lacks the range to be a true centerfielder. A move to outside linebacker is not out of the question, and Jones needs a lot of work on his overall game. His decision to leave for the NFL was a bit premature, yet his size will entice a number of NFL teams.
