2013

Jones got off to a monster start in 2013, scoring three touchdowns (one receiving, one each on punt and kick returns) to help the Crimson Tide overcome a less than stellar offensive performance to pick up a win over Virginia Tech in their season opener. While he ran a high percentage of vertical routes to keep opposing safeties honest, the bulk of his receptions came on underneath routes, causing him to average just 9.7 yards per catch (36 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns). With Lane Kiffin taking over as offensive coordinator in Tuscaloosa, expect Jones to line up outside more, as Kiffin likes to keep a lead blocker in the backfield for his tailback. It will be interesting to see how well the 5-foot-11 receiver handles playing outside the numbers, and whether or not his role as the team’s “H” receiver has prevented him from reaching his ceiling. At this point, Jones looks like a shifty slot receiver whose best bet to make an NFL roster is as a return specialist and a No. 4 receiver. -Jeremy Hyde, 5/15
