Seventh Round: Chris Jones, NT, Bowling Green, 6-1 7/8" 301

Ran his forty a respectable 5.10 pro day with 31" vert. First-Team All Mac and earning MAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 with 42 tackles, 12.5 sacks, and 19 tackles for loss. He fits Texans current scheme for position & solidifies some quality depth behind Mitchell. Stout, high-effort interior lineman who also flashes good short area quickness. Brings power out of his stance and an explosive punch into a blocker’s chest when man-up. Constantly has a leverage advantage with his low center of gravity, and possesses the quickness and hustle to move his feet to win a gap or bull his man towards the quarterback on pass plays. Spins off blocks or uses an arm-over move to reach the quarterback. Gives effort to the sideline when the ball is on his half of the field. Works at the five-technique at times, crashes inside adeptly and plays his containment responsibilities well.
Great call BL.

Never heard of him before but his tape is really solid, doesn't go backwards, and relentless with some short area quickness and a couple nice pass rush moves.

Gotta have confidence to play in the NFL, right? Of the 3rd day picks, I'm really intrigued by this guy.

Dug up this BGSU piece.............the kid's got his head screwed on well.

A day in the life of Chris Jones

At any one time Chris Jones has several challenging jobs to fill.

As a pre-exercise science major, Jones takes 12 to 15 credits a semester in classes that include nutrition, physiology and anatomy. As a star football player for the Falcons, Jones spends up to 20 hours each week practicing, training and watching films. And as a regular college student he tries to find the right balance and manage to have some fun along the way.

But Jones, a 21-year-old junior from Brownsburg, IN, is used to this life. In fact, the standout nose guard has learned the balancing act between student and athlete can be complicated and busy, but rarely boring.

“Chris came to Bowling Green with a unique maturity level and an understanding of the demands and sacrifices it takes to be a successful college athlete,” said Head Coach Dave Clawson. “Chris has an incredible work-ethic that, when combined with his natural talent, makes him a special player and person for our football program at Bowling Green. We are very fortunate to have someone with Chris’ character and ability in our program.”

During the season, Jones’ day begins pretty early for a college student — the alarm goes off at 6 a.m. at the house he shares with three teammates. Instead of an 8 a.m. class, it is a 7 a.m. football practice. After team meetings, where the last game might be reviewed or future strategies discussed, Jones heads to the field for an hour or two. After practice, it’s off to class and studying.

While his schedule can be demanding, Jones has a clear view of his priorities. If a class or exam is scheduled during football time, football must yield. The team hosts study tables in the meeting room, where players can get extra help if desired, and coaches will allow players to come to practices late if necessary.

“Before anything we’re all students,” said Jones. “The coaches say take care of your schoolwork first.” It’s no wonder, then, that BGSU’s student-athletes consistently excel in the classroom, earning repeated accolades and setting a new record with an overall GPA of 3.08.

Nice article, Cloak. He does sound like a well adjusted kid. I think I'll choose him to be my focus player throughout the off season and TC. We might've gotten a steal here

Default Re: 6th round Chris Jones DT BGSU

Don't know why I put the evaluation for Jones in the UDFA thread earlier today.

At any rate, I was watching the Florida game (their first game of the 2012 season), and I like what I saw.

Even the commentator mentioned early in the game that Jones can start in the SEC.

Through 3 quarters (I haven't finished the game yet), Jones tallied 3 QB pressures.
One of them could have been a sack if the two defenders had not bumped into each other when they got close to the QB around the same time.
On another one, a critical 3rd and 8 near the BG end zone, Jones chased the QB toward the side line. Another defender came up to help, forcing the QB to step out of bound, losing yardage in the process.
The times when the Gators tried to run near Jones, they weren't successful.
Longest gain was 3 yards, a few others were for minimal gain, and one went to a 2-yd loss.
Jones did not make the tackle directly, but he either shut the play down or made it hard for the offense.

This guy is becoming more intriguing for me now.

Against Brian Winters, a third round pick, Jones also won more battles (they didn't match up much, though.)

On one play, he totally dominated Winters, putting him into the ground during the process.
On another play, he went past Winters so fast, I'm not sure Winters even laid a finger on him.

Jones was used most everywhere on the line.
Just like in the Florida game, he won against every O-linemen.
it's not that he dominated them, but Jones showed that he could be a good starter in the SEC.

His techniques got better in 2012.
He has a good swim move and counter it nicely with the spin move.
His most dazzling move; however, is a combination of the swim move followed directly with the spin move (against double-team).

It's too early to declare Jones a steal, but it looks like he could be at least a nice rotational player for the Texans.
