Seems to be moving too fast for his own good at times, as his footwork is very sloppy and he consistently rounds off his routes tremendously, especially in the short passing game. Does a better job down the field, but still seems rushed getting out of his breaks as he consistently advertises his routes before they take place or he will really chop his feet in order to regain balance before changing directions.
Also, doesn't showcase the ability to cleanly beat press off the line, isn't real sudden or physical and simply allows defenders to get their hands on him as he tries to run himself free down the field.
Impression: Has some decent athletic ability, but it's not enough to overcome his struggles as a natural route runner."
Positive: Reliable college receiver with poor size/speed numbers. Runs solid routes, gets separation from defenders, and effectively adjusts to errant throws. Displays good eye/hand coordination, uses his frame to protect the ball, and shows strong hands with the ability to pull the ball from the air. Comes across the middle, stays inbounds running after the catch, and works to pick up positive yardage. Gives effort blocking.
Negative: One-speed receiver who lacks a burst. Occasionally lets the ball get inside him.
Analysis: Jones was productive on the college level yet lacks the size/speed numbers to be anything more than a fifth receiver in the NFL."
