Player Analysis: Grant Jones

30, Grant Jones, LB
Jr., 5-10, 205, Pawnee, OK
There were plenty of double takes when Jones was moved to linebacker. The major concern was whether he would hold up when taking on a fullback on the off-tackle play, but he did more than survive. He stood in there and may have proved that he can be a great situational player in passing situations as he proved to be terrific in blitzing the quarterback. In scrimmages and full contact team work, Jones had double-digit sacks this spring. The former safety will need to add muscle this summer, but his speed makes him a weapon at linebacker.
