—Missed the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine because of injuries.
—Doesn't have a natural position and may be in for a long developmental process.
—Lacks an elite trait that you fall in love with.
—Bounced off runners as a tackler and doesn't always have natural wrap-up skills.
Jones is an exciting prospect from an athletic standpoint, but he needs time to develop once he finds a home at one position. Texas moved him all over the defense, which may have been to his detriment. Jones' injury in the predraft circuit also didn't help with no pro days or workouts, but we like his chances to eventually break into a safety rotation.
