RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Jones.

2008

The converted quarterback has failed to live up to his promise at receiver, but still has the potential to breakout. At 6-6, 242, Jones has the size to be a redzone monster. his 40-inch vertical leap and 4.4 speed make him awfully tempting. Jones may not have a chance to fulfill any of his potential as he sits on the roster bubble for Jacksonville. If he can stick on the roster and show some growth, Jones may still be able to live up to the hype.

2007

Calvin Johnson might be the only receiver with as much raw athletic talent as the 6-6, 240-pound Jones, who runs a 4.4 40 and has a 40-inch vertical leap. The problem for Jones during his first two seasons has been three-fold: Heís been unable to stay healthy, heís still unpolished as a receiver (heís a converted college quarterback), and the Jaguars tend to spread the ball around. It also doesnít help that Byron Leftwich and David Garrard are among the less accurate passers in the league. That said, Jones was still productive on a per play basis last year, averaging eight yards per target and hauling in three of his eight red-zone looks for scores. Three of those targets were from inside the five, and Jones scored on two, and weíd expect the Jaguars to exploit his tremendous size more frequently around the goal line in 2007. Jones still needs to work on his route-running, and he needs to show better focus and more toughness. Moreover, the groin and hamstring strains that dogged him for most of last season are a concern, especially because he was hampered by a quad strain during spring minicamps. While this particular injury isnít likely to linger into training camp, susceptibility to soft tissue injuries is a major problem for a speed receiver. Still, at press time, Jones is likely to be the teamís No. 1 receiver, and given his physical tools and that heís heading into this third year, heís still a high upside player.

2006

At 6-6, 240 and with blazing speed, Jones is a rare athlete, but is still unpolished as a wide receiver, having made the conversion from quarterback in college. Jonesí route running still needs work, but even when heís covered, he can still come down with the ball at times due to his big frame. As such, heís a good red-zone target, pulling four of his 13 attempts down for scores. With Jimmy Smithís retirement, itís an open competition for the top receiving spot, and in minicamp, Jones was lining up with the first team in Smithís spot, opposite Ernest Wilford. If Jones wins the job out of camp, thereís a lot of upside here, particularly in touchdown-heavy leagues.

2005

The converted Arkansas quarterback wowed Jaguars scouts so much with his uncanny physical ability that they made him the the 21st selection in the 2005 draft. The transition to receiver will be a long learning process for Jones, but the 6'6" rookie has the size and speed to possibly make a significant contribution to the team once he gets acclimated to his new position.
