Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEION JONES: LSU, 6007 222 4.59. One-year starter from New Orleans, LA. Played in 51 games as a valuable contributor on special teams’ coverage units. Finalist for the 2015 Butkus Award. Led the Tigers in tackles in 2015 with 100 and an additional 13.5 sacks. Another fast, quick, and explosive LSU linebacker. A blue blood competitor who plays every play at a fever pitch. He has excellent lateral quickness. Sticks his foot in the ground and has instant acceleration to the ball carrier. No hesitation or false steps, just explosiveness. Sudden on run through stunts. Good timing. He slips blocks. Will finish plays and downfield pursuit. Gets through traffic like a jackrabbit through a mine field. Jones is a really good football player but physics catches up to the small guys. He has a tough time releasing from big offensive tackles and tackling big backs. Alabama’s Jake Coker just shook him off on a free run blitz. Senior Bowl notes: Explosive moving downhill with good inside blitz ability. Effective at avoiding and slipping blocks. Good range in coverage and pursuit. Quick to change directions and flip his hips like a defensive back in coverage. Lacks the ideal size and bulk for the position. 2015 stats: 100 T, 13.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 3 PBU, 6 QBH, 2 INT, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.05, right 2.00. OSR:10/19. Third/fourth round. (A-32 3/8, H-9 1/4, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
