Christian Jones, the rising junior outside linebacker, will continue to turn heads through his dynamic play. He proved it at Lake Howell just down the road from my house, so I know this guy's the real deal. He's even changed his position, going from strong side linebacker to weak side in order to replace the void Bradham's left behind.
His 56 stops are impressive, solid enough for third on the team from last season. Being closer to the line of scrimmage will, on its own, give him publicity and the chance to compete for the All-ACC team. If you'd ask him, though, I'm sure he'd say a national championship ring is a tad more enticing.
Jones should keep opponents honest, forcing the quarterback to have to go long to gain yardage. That is, obviously, key. But his speed should help him get running backs into the Iron Curtain that is FSU's rush defense (on average, no team allowed fewer yards per carry than Florida State).
His skills refer back to his intimidating specimen: 6'4'' and 240 pounds of sheer willpower. I'm scared to critique about him for fear that he will come and destroy me.
