Howard Jones

School: Shepherd
Position: OLB
Positive: Four-year starter who finished with 32 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks as a senior after 30 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and 9 sacks the prior year. Posted a combined 35 sacks in college. Athletic small school defensive end who projects to outside linebacker in the NFL. Explosive, quick off the snap and fast up the field. Shows speed off the edge, possesses a sudden burst and plays with both balance and body control. Agile, easily alters his angle of attack and aggressively goes after ball handlers. Flashes power in his lower body, rarely off his feet and makes plays to every direction.
Negative: Lacks classic size. Handled at the point of attack and does not properly use his hands to protect himself. Average instincts.
Analysis: Jones was a disruptive force on the small school level but a defender primarily used up the field. He possesses the size and athleticism to line up at linebacker if he improves his instincts and learns to make plays moving in reverse.
