Name: Nathan Jones School Rutgers Year 5Sr
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 180 40: 4.5 Pos: CB
Bio: Two year starter who finished with 73/2/7 last year and averaged 25.7 yards on 19 kick returns, with one score. Academic All American in 2003. Big East co-Special Teams Player of the Year as a junior when he averaged 28.3 yards on 26 kick returns, bringing a pair back for touchdowns. Defensive totals that season were 84/2/7.
Pos: Adequate defensive back with the abilities to impact the game as a kick returner. Smooth transitioning off the line, quickly breaks on the pass and has a burst of closing speed. Supports the run and makes a lot of tackles. Elusive returning kicks and runs to daylight if given the slightest bit of open room.
Neg: Quick out of his back pedal, slow turning back to locate the ball in man. Does not display the top hands for the interception.
Analysis: Statistically Jones has been very impressive the past two seasons but is a zone corner that must face the quarterback. Yet his ability to produce on special teams will earn his wage at the next level.
