Jay Jones is excellent in zone coverage and can reliably lock down top opposing perimeter receivers. He has room left to put on additional lean muscle. Good length and reach. Made a couple of crazy interceptions including one where he fell and caught it on the ground at the 0:59 mark in the video below. Dominant reaction time and concentration. Tackles well in the open field taking good angles with good positioning. Solid speed and flexible hips to keep up with and mirror his opposition out of the back pedal. Great awareness when in coverage to lock down balls thrown his way.
