Exhibits an above-average initial step when asked to reach targets off his frame in the run game, but again struggles to generate a real pop on contact and stay on blocks through the play. Loses his balance easily, gets overextended into contact and lacks the coordination to consistently finish. Doesn't generate much of a pop into blocks as an in-line guy either, but has some natural power and can at least create a slight push eventually through the play after the defenders' initial surge.
Impression: Lacks the range and athleticism to play tackle at the next level and simply doesn't have the type of short-area quickness/body control needed to hold up inside either."
Positive: Big lineman who is still rough around the edges. Blocks with good lean, keeps his feet moving, and quickly gets his hands into defenders. Solid position blocker with the ability to turn defenders off the line of scrimmage. Moves relatively well on his feet and flashes skill in space. Plays with good quickness and shows footwork off the edge in pass protection. Works to bend his knees and block with leverage.
Negative: Must make better use of angles and does not display great awareness. Struggles to adjust to blitzers off the corners. Overextends into blocks and lacks balance. Does not properly places hands into defenders on a consistent basis.
Analysis: Jones is a size prospect who has shown flashes of skill the past two seasons. A tackle for Nebraska, Jones is better off inside at guard in the NFL."
