Summary
Jones appears to one of those “good, solid football player” types. His game lacks any distinctive elements and “wow” plays, but he also doesn’t make all that many mistakes. He profiles as a starter at center, but some of the more explosive defenders in the league could give him issues.

Strengths
Jones is very fluid in the snap and first step process, as it all culminates and transpires very quickly. He does a very good job of getting his hands into the defender’s chest quickly, and latches on throughout the play. Jones keeps his base low and is able to mirror pass rushers. Jones shows impressive footwork in his drop. In Georgia’s offense, Jones was asked to pull, and looked very fluid in doing so. He was able to break down in space, locate his man, and execute his block.

Weaknesses
Jones lacks elite size and athletic ability. No particular aspect of his game stands out as overwhelmingly impressive. Jones doesn’t create much of a push in the running game or jar pass rushers near the line of scrimmage. He is more of a sticky blocker than one who moves, stonewalls, or takes defenders down. Perhaps due to his shorter arms, Jones gets caught overextending and leaning into blocks, allowing defenders to slip off. Jones’ awareness on the defense’s pressure seems to be fairly limited as well.
