Jones was a receiver that we had high expectations heading into his junior year, but wow he has surpassed those easily. The 24 yards per catch is an eye brow raiser, but not as much as the 17 TD’s he produce in just 8 games. Jones broke the state record with 2k receiving yards. So what makes Jones such a weapon in WR’s spread offense? Welll for one he is an elite accelerator on the field, capable of hitting his top speed in just a few short strides. Even when a defender thinks they have an angle on Jones he can just buzz right by them for extra yardage. Jones can make some pretty quick cuts, but it’s when he is running in straight line that he is the most dangerous. He doesn’t have absolutely elite speed, but it’s good enough to grab big chunks of yardage at the FBS level. Jones is a very good route runner, and demonstrates soft hands making catches sprawled completely across the field to make a catch. Working his short yardage route running is where Jones makes the next big step. He’s a big play waiting to happen, right now, and does a tremendous job of playing the deep pass but there some pretty basic routes he is running at this point in time too.
