Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DJ JONES: Mississippi, 6005 319 5.03. One-year starter from Greenville, SC. Started 15 of 25 games. Overly stout presence at the point of attack with quick feet and a sense of urgency. Functionally strong and powerful. Can out-leverage anyone all day. Excels at controlling his gap assignments. Will make plays when he gets freed up, not just a stay at home defender. Will read blockers and move in the right direction post-snap. Hustler who will compete hard and chase down plays from behind routinely. Very short with even shorter arms. Can play top heavy and be overly reliant on his initial punch. Lacks any sort of rush moves beyond pushing his way into the pocket. Will tire easily, needs to improve stamina. May not bring enough versatility to the table. Came to Ole Miss after two years in junior college as a key contributor to a two-time national champion. Played in every game over the past two years, showing flashes of dominance. Has the natural leverage advantage, being built so low to the ground with functional knee bend. His playing strength matches his elite weight room strength and there is a role for him in the NFL. Most likely a backup 3-4 nose tackle. 2016 stats: 30 T, 3 TFL, 2 sacks. Edge speed:left 1.86, right 2.19. OSR:5/16. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 1/2, H-10 1/4, BP-25, 10-1.75).
