Jones is the fourth player to have an announced pre-draft visit with the Bills. 

At Alabama, Jones began his career as a wide receiver. He has played as a cornerback in the last two seasons with the Crimson Tide. This year, Jones recorded two interceptions and seven passes defensed in 15 starts. 

Jones also served as a kick and punt returner at Alabama. Last season, Jones had four touchdowns on punt returns. 

Here is how Jones performed at the NFL combine:

40 Time: 4.49

Bench: 10

Vertical: 33 inches

Broad: 116 inches

3-Cone: 6.71

Short Shuttle: 4.21

Jones is viewed as a third or fourth round draft pick in the 2016 NFL draft. In Buffalo, Jones could provide cornerback depth as a rookie and handle punt return responsibilities. Buffalo needs competition at cornerback behind Stephon Gilmore, Ronald Darby, Nickell Robey, and Mario Butler.
