S Reshad Jones Scouting Report

S Reshad Jones, Georgia
Pos. Rank: 5Grade: 2nd-3rd RoundHeight: 6-1 1/2Weight: 21440: 4.51Year: 3-Jr.

The Good: Athletic safety prospect with a large degree of upside to his game. Explosive and flashes on the scene in run defense. Covers a lot of area on the field, gets vertical, and makes some very athletic plays in midair. Displays a burst of closing speed, stops ball-carriers dead in their tracks, and plays to his size. Forces the action up the field and can be an intimidating defender.

The Bad: Shows hesitation in coverage, misses assignments and usually late getting to the sidelines. Marginally instinctive and does not display a feel for coverage.

The Verdict: Jones is a nice-sized safety who showed ability of the past three seasons and forces the action moving downhill. He needs a lot of work on his coverage skills, yet he has the underlying ability to be a player at the next level.
