2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ZAY JONES: East Carolina, 6017 202 4.48. Four-year starter from Austin, TX. Good sized frame. Has better top end speed than given credit for. Incredible competitor with a high motor and character who plays the full 60-minute game with an unrelenting effort. Uses good timing and effort to maximize and lengthen catch radius. High points and plucks the ball out of the air when making 50/50 catches. Strong route runner and tough when making catches in traffic. Plays with good football instincts. Has a great knack to absorb body blows from defenders when making middle of the field catches. Has marginal footwork at the line of scrimmage when getting off press. Lacks elite top end acceleration to run away from defenders. Must improve his job of keeping defenders’ hands off during the course of the route. Lets corners dictate route path to him too much. Average run blocker but will over set and often be quickly shed by defenders. Incredibly consistent tough football player who loves playing the game. Son of former Cowboys’ linebacker Robert Jones, and nephew to former Cincinnati Bengals’ quarterback Jeff Blake. Zay holds the NCAA record for most career receptions (399) as well as the single season record (158). Has a strong set of hands, route running ability, and football IQ to play at the next level. Has just enough top end speed to play outside receiver. Solid day two selection. 2016 stats: 158-1746, 11.1 ypr, 8 TD. OSR:3/60. Second/third round. (A-32 1/4, H-9, VJ-36.5, SS-4.02).
