RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
While like most rookies, he’s far from a sure thing, Jones has the skill set and opportunity to post sizable numbers right away, particularly in the tackle category. He finished his Syracuse career with 147 tackles (102 solo) in just 32 games, which projects to roughly 74 stops (51 solo) in an NFL season. With a mammoth wingspan (35.5-inch arms) and flexibility and balance for his size, Jones has truly rare side-to-side range to trap ballcarriers. He can plant, change direction and lunge much more gracefully than is natural for someone of his build. While he is not as explosive or fast as the San Francisco star, the Aldon Smith comparisons are not entirely unwarranted for Jones, though Jones will not rival Smith as a pass rusher.
