Byron Jones

School: Connecticut
Position: CB
Bio: Four-year starter who played in 7 games last season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Totaled 88 tackles as a sophomore then broke up 8 passes and intercepted 3 the following season.
Positive: Nice-sized cornerback with solid ball skills. Instinctive, athletic and plays with suddenness. Competes to break up passes and effective facing the ball. Plays while injured. Battles receivers throughout the route, rarely challenged by opponents and quickly tracks the ball in the air. Displays good awareness, gets vertical to defend throws and effectively positions himself against receivers to break up passes. Explodes to the ball out of his plant and shows a good closing burst.
Negative: Struggles getting his head back around and often does too much face-guarding. Struggles staying downfield with opponents despite his 40 time.
Analysis: Jones was a consistent cornerback on the college level and was rarely challenged by opponents. He'll offer starting possibilities backed off the line of scrimmage or in zone coverage and should see action early in his NFL career.
