#23 Evan Jones
Jones has waited his turn and gets one last chance to shine before he ends his Spartans career. Has earned two letters so far playing mostly on special teams.
Played in 13 games with seven overall tackles. Had a career-high three tackles against Air Force.
WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN
The Spartans really need Jones to step forward in his final season with the losses suffered at defensive end. Was listed on the depth chart as one of the starting defensive ends but will have to fight to hold on to the spot in camp. We have Jones this high on the countdown because if he steps forward the Spartans defensive line will be greatly better than expected off the edge.
