Reshad Jones Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'2 - 212 lbs.|
2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Reshad Jones, FS, Georgia
Jones was redshirted prior to his freshman season at Georgia, so he was three years removed from high school at the end of last year. As a result, he could have gone to the NFL; and he almost did. The free safety indicated he would leave Athens early and enter the 2009 draft, but he decided to pull his name out prior to the deadline. That was music to Mark Richt's ears, as the Bulldog defense had been dreadful outside of Jones and linebacker Rennie Curran. Without Jones, it's hard to imagine where the already-mediocre Georgia team would have been. He finished second on the team in total tackles behind Curran with 73 and also finished second in solo tackles with 44. He led the team in pass breakups (seven) and interceptions (four). Jones has good size at 6'2', 212 pounds, but he needs to run consistently in the 4.4s in order to be an elite player at his position, because right now his coverage skills are lacking just a bit (he ran a 4.53 and 4.47 in two attempts at Georgia's pro day). A lot of scouts, however, think Jones will be a better player in the NFL than in college (which is saying a fair amount). He has all the physical tools to live up to those expectations, and he should be more effective when he does not have to do almost everything for an otherwise awful defense. Jones should be off the board no later than the end of round three.
