RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Cowboys made full use of Jones' versatility last year, moving him between corner and safety as team need and game situation dictated, and while the lack of a defined starting role limited his production the rookie still managed 66 tackles in 16 games. Heading into 2016, Jones is expected to be the full-time free safety and while that role likely won't come with the kind of tackle numbers routinely put up by teammate Barry Church, Jones has the speed and world-class athleticism to pull down what could be the first of many NFL interceptions in his career.

2015

Jones showed incredible athleticism at the Scouting Combine after a productive college career for Connecticut, and is expected to compete for a starting spot at cornerback after being selected with the 27th overall pick in the 2015 draft
