Our safety from NC State went down? I got you, fam

FA Josh Jones:

TheWolfpacker - Former NC State safety Josh Jones a top-50 NFL Draft  prospect


What he does best:

  • Big combine put him on the radar – 6-foot-1, 220 lbs., 4.41 40, 37.5 inch vertical and 11-foot-0 vertical jump put him in elite company.
  • When in position, uses his length well to reach around and break up passes.
  • 25/46, 0 TDs, 3 INTs and 6 PDs played some CB early.
  • When he stays low and over his feet, and disciplined to his target, he displays the athletic and physical tools needed to make plays on the ball in the air.
  • Has the size and strength to compete with tight ends in man coverage.



Player Comparison: Mike Minter. Jones reminds me of a bigger version of Minter. Minter was a second-round pick who went on to have an excellent NFL career. He was a tough, physical presence who turned himself into a well-rounded defender. I think Jones could end up being similar in the NFL and also might be a second-round pick.

Looks like what you've got there is a safety who has trouble with acceleration and change of direction.  Just looking at the scores, I've never seen the guy play.  If he's a FA at this point, there's probably a reason.

You know who is even worse at those things?  Juston Burrisjuston-burris-ras-12732.png?resize=806%2C522&ssl=1
