One of the play makers at Memphis, Tevin Jones was a go to option for Paxton Lynch. Jones also played some high-end special teams for the Tigers, making him a dual threat with versatility for the roster. In four seasons at Memphis, Jones caught 90 passes for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns.
Jones has shown early that he can hold his own in the offense and has some solid pass catch abilities. He is being overshadowed by the other top rookie wide receivers, but he is putting together some good early tape. Jones has a chance to make his mark with the team and finding a way to stick with the Texans is priority number one.
Jones will still need to develop and making him part of the practice squad could prove beneficial down the road.
