Dwight Jones Scouting Report[/b]

Dwight Jones - North Carolina (HT: 6-3¼ - WT: 230)

Positives -- Big receiver with a strong frame... Above-average size-speed ratio, has the physical tools that teams look for... Good runner after the catch, maintains balance through tacklers and has a strong stiff arm... A big play threat, had receptions of 34 or more yards in seven games this year... Strong red zone target with his combination of size and strength... Does a good job with press coverage, rarely gets knocked off his routes... Very physical, uses his body well to wall off defenders from the football... Good vertical receiver who can go up and make the spectacular catch... Has very long arms... Strong and willing run blocker, will block down the field... Had a big senior season, recorded 85 catches for 1,196 yards and 12 touchdowns... Similar to former North Carolina wide receivers Greg Little and Hakeem Nicks, who both transitioned well to the NFL.

Negatives -- Will drop some easy passes, has some lapses in concentration and will take his eyes off the ball to look up field... Allows too many balls get into his frame, needs to catch more with his hands... Raw as a route runner, rounds off some of his cuts and has to gear down to change direction... Below average explosion, doesn't have a second gear and has some problems getting separation in man coverage... Below average after the catch, doesn't have the speed or lateral agility to make people miss in the open field... Struggles with zone coverage, has a hard to recognizing the soft spot in the coverage... Did not impress at the Senior Bowl... Overall a raw prospect who will need time to develop.




Do they let two different people write the Pro's on Con's for draft prospects?

There is a difference between press & man coverage. Press is a technique, man is a concept. You can press a receiver at the line then release him into a zone. You can play off the receiver & still cover him mano y mano

Sounds like he's going to come in and really try to go beast mode, so we'll see.
Sounds to me like he is going to be in for a rude awakening when he gets to camp, in terms of both the talent level of the players and their willingness to put him in his place. That cocky attitude will have to turn into a hard working one in a hurry, or he won't be a Texan for long.

Great signing IMO. No risk here whatsoever and plenty to gain. I can't wait for Dwight to meet Cushing. Hepefully he makes the right choices and can turn himself into a professional.

Yeah, that whole story was really weird. But in the end that's sort of what came out. Whether that's true or not I have no idea. I'd like to believe it is.

I'm not a huge fan of calling himself the next Andre Johnson. That seems very un-Dre like.

I do hope he succeeds though. Hopefully TJ and others can get him on the right path. I'd like to see more Tarheels representing.

People SAID they hated Muhammad Ali because he was cocky.

People actually LOVED Muhammad Ali because he could back it up.

Thanks for the recap, Rey. What station was that?

Good WRs tend to be cocky. AJ is one of the exceptions. Going undrafted very well may light a fire under Jones. The college game may have been too easy for him and he will rise to the challenge of playing with the big boys.

One thing that could help Jones is his familiarity with the Texans offense. UNC's offensive coordinator, John Shoop, model the Tarheel passing game after Kubiak's Texan offense. Jones has to take advantage of this advantage. Because unlike back in Chapel Hill, he's no longer the BMOC. He's actually behind the guy who is behind the BMOC. If Jones comes prepared to go 110% on the field and the classroom, were talking about a steal. If he comes in acting aloof and entitled, Jones make not make it to training camp.

I read that his route tree is very limited. Given the sophisticated offense, why did he run so few routes and those poorly?

Big red flag for me.

It was on 610. They said they'd be putting a podcast up. It may be on the site by now.

They're going to be playing clips from that Interview in other shows on the station.

Honestly I don't have a problem with the cockiness. Dre may never say that stuff in the media, but I think it's a little foolish if we assume we know how he is around friends. I can imagine he talks big when cameras aren't around. If I remember the sound bytes from the game where he turned finnegan to innegan, he was doing some trash talking.

Either way the production on the field is what's most important.

He and innegan have quite the history. In fact, that wasn't the first time AJ beat the hell out of the fake Irishman. Back in week 2 of the '09 season, the Texans traveled to Nashville and pulled out a big road win. There was a scuffle on the sideline, and the cameras caught Eric Winston going at it with a d-lineman, Dre was pounding on innegan behind a wall of players. That's one matchup I'm sure Johnson will miss.

I don't take 10% of what I read on the internet seriously. One guy says something, and it is aped by 100 more. The facts are that Jones had two good seasons at UNC, but flamed out in the draft season. The most important months of his career, and he doesn't take it seriously? That's the red flag.

LOL, that must be why Dre said "I'll tear your ass up...you know that." during round two.

Andre Johnson is my favorite receiver -- the way he moves, carries himself

Jones' tone was kinda joking with all the bravado, imo. Gonna give him the benefit of the doubt ... short leash.

Don't predict to be a starter when you were undrafted and labeled with an attitude

To be fair they asked him to make a bold prediction for the season. He probably was a little too cocky for most peoples taste but atleast he believes in himself.

Dang I had forgotten about that. Look, Texans will give him same help it tried to give to JJ. It will be up to player to accept it. Yates might help him in fact I'd room them together. I'd put Keenum with Schaub.
