Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BYRON JONES: Connecticut, 6005 199 4.39. Started 37 of 43 career games. From New Britain, CT. He is noted for top tier intangibles and rare athletic ability. Hard worker with position versatility. A big, physical, aggressive corner who plays a smart and instinctive game. Quick to diagnose but lacks the quick twitch movement to match. His tool set and style of play may be best suited for safety in the NFL where he could stick as a backup and situational defender. Thick and long frame to go along with above average height for the position. Experienced playing press coverage, showing the ability to jam receivers at the line. Strong, heavy hands. Quick to see the action. Can read the quarterback and receiver’s intentions all at once. Shows proper footwork at the point of attack and in space. His movement on the field doesn’t always match what he shows in workouts. Lacks the quick twitch when pouncing on the action. Takes too long to turn his hips and accelerate. Will play without knee bend, shows a lack of lower body flexibility. 2014 stats: 24 T, 2 INT, 4 PBU. BTR:left 4.69, right DNP. Only did select drills at Combine, shoulder surgery. Second/third round. (A-32, H-10, VJ-44.5, SS-3.94).
