Listed at 6-foot-8, Jones is easy to spot when watching the East Carolina offense. He is built like a wiry offensive tackle, but catches the football like a wide receiver. While he currently lacks the desired physicality to play inline at the next level, Jones is an advanced route runner who exhibits great leaping ability, natural hands, and a huge catch radius. He is not the most explosive athlete, limiting his ability to pick up yards after the catch, but he has surprising speed for a player his size. Jones is underutilized in the Pirates offense, so it would come as little surprise to see him excel at the next level in role better suited to his strengths. His ability to separate with both his speed and length, combined with his athleticism and receiving skills, will undoubtedly cause him to draw looks from NFL teams looking to develop the next mismatch tight end prospect. -Jeremy Hyde, 07/12
