LSU Safety Chad Jones

Chad Jones: LSU, No. 3, SS, 6-3, 220

Jones is a unique athlete who was a star on the LSU football team this year and doubled as a pitcher on the baseball team. He's a big, physically built kid who showcases natural body control when asked to break down in space and is a solid wrap-up tackler. He looks natural when asked to attack the line of scrimmage as a downhill runner and does a nice job sidestepping blocks and keeping himself clean through traffic. He showcases a good initial first step and generates power on contact. He takes good angles toward the ball and consistently is able to disengage the ball from his man in the pass game.

Jones is surprisingly fluid for his size and does a nice job cleanly getting out of his breaks and getting after the ball. He's a ball hawk in the secondary who possesses above-average instincts and knows how to make plays. However, he will get caught freelancing at times and will take himself out of plays in the pass game. He showcases impressive straight-line speed and can close once he gets going. Overall, he possesses an impressive combination of size, power and fluidity for a guy his size and has the ability to get even better when he's given the chance to focus on the ball only.

Grade: 6.7
