Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAIWAN JONES: Michigan State, 6024 245 4.96. Three-year starter from New Baltimore, MI. First year as the starting middle linebacker replacing Max Bullough. A versatile linebacker who is scheme diverse. He has good lateral quickness and change of direction. Plays square to the line of scrimmage with his toes pointed to the goal posts. Good range in run support and pass coverage. Meets the blocker with strength at the point of attack. Leverages the blockers, sheds block, and makes the tackle. His long arms and big hands help him control blockers at the point of attack. Plays faster in person than he appears on tape. May be a three down linebacker in certain coverage schemes. Will contribute on all special teams’ coverage units. A big physical linebacker who was more explosive, quicker, and athletic than his Shrine game counterparts in practice. An “old school” middle linebacker who is thick and powerful. Struggles with double move running backs in man-to-man coverage. May be a two down linebacker as he develops his coverage skills. Hesitates at times when he is reading and reacting to his keys. East-West Shrine participant. 2014 stats: 60 T, 12.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 2.27, right 2.43. OSR:15/17. Sixth/seventh round. (A-34, H-10, BP-19, SS-4.33).
