Wow.

That was... inconsistent. It reminded me of Jacoby almost. Except he runs with the ball more securely. He's got to focus on making the catch more but if he can do that, he could be pretty great.

All kidding aside, I think Dwight Jones has a good chance of either making the team or the PS if he works hard at it.
I think he can also add a little more muscle to his frame or just continue to firm up his body.

6'3 plus, 230 lbs or so, 34" arm, 80-3/9 wingspan.

The potential is there.

It was a mixed bag. Jones showed some of his skills such as leaping ability and run after catch. That interception/fumble was a great play by the defender...and possibly a penalty in the NFL for hitting a defenseless player.

I may be in the minority, but I like this guy a lot. Reminds me a little of Arian with being a bit odd and getting the "character issues" label even though neither had ever been in trouble with the law, did drugs, or caused problems on their teams.

With some coaching, he looks like the kind of player that could be very successful in the NFL if he works hard enough and listens to the advice of those around him. And there is no better guy to learn from than Andre Johnson. AJ doesn't even need to talk to him. Dwight Jones just needs to sit back and watch how a Hall of Famer conducts himself.

Dwight is neither fast nor quick in and out of his breaks,

In addition to that he appears to be a vit of a headcase,

I hope he puts it all together,he could be an upgrade over Jacoby.

The skills are there. It's where Jones' head is at that will determine how he contributes in Houston. If at all.

Ourlads.com pro scout Dan Shonka:

Quote:
Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina -*6032 230 4.55
Two-year starter who is a big physical slot receiver. Has good run after catch ability. He builds up speed as he goes down the field. Has the strength to make the first tackler miss. Has strong hands to catch the ball in a crowd. Shows the grit to catch inside breaking routes like the slant. Comes back to the ball. Not explosive off the line of scrimmage, but is not held up. Was the Tar Heels’ go-to receiver in the clutch for third down conversions. Good ball reactions to catch the tough pass. Can focus and track the ball into his hands. Can win one on one match-ups with smaller corners. Can make the tough one-handed catches but his concentration drops. Catches the ball in front of him. A good but inconsistent blocker. Has all the tools, just needs to keep honing his craft. Led the Atlantic Coast Conference in catches. Had huge games versus Virginia (198 yds, 2 TDs) and Florida State (223 yds). 2011 stats: 85-1196 yds, 14.1 ypr, 12 TDs. OSR:28/42. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34, H-9, VJ-33, SS-DNP).

He makes catches, plays physical, runs his routes, and consistently moves in a forward direction. The latter in itself is already more than I know I can expect from Jacoby.

Notes:
1. Hosley is 5'10, 178 lbs, 30-7/8 arm.
2. Against Louisvllle, D. Jones went against a Freshman who played with very poor techniques. I would scratch off this game.
3. There was really nothing in the Ga. Tech that can give us a good idea how he will perform at the next level.

I also watched the Miami game, and didn't see anything either.
I definitely need to watch more games, but at the moment I haven't seen any "real" route being ran by Jones to evaluate him properly.
(Whatever I watched in 2010 with Yates at the helm, I've forgotten.)

He's 6'3-230.
He didn't play as big and physical as I'd like.
I expected him to dominate but he was quite inconsistent.
I've seen him bumped off his routes a couple of times.
In general though, he isn't fast nor quick so good CB can play off him and react to the short routes like the slant quicker than these college CBs could.
And he's not going to run past anybody in the NFL, not even Kareem Jackson

Other than putting his name on advertising New Year's party conflict what indicates him being a head case? Of all the things we have read about college players (let alone NFL players) this seems minor. I don't think saying he will be the next AJ is a negative.

Hopefully you're right.

Am I wrong in thinking there's a reason no team in the NFL drafted a guy with the talent that Jones possesses

If Jones drops his weight, somewhere under 220, he will shine! He needs to become our Marques Colston (drafted late 7th rd.) long strider with excellent body control, toughness & hands of a possession receiver.

It's actually more of his reaction to that whole thing that's the problem.

He put his name on this party. He was told to take it off by the school. He took it off. He played his last game and then he thought he was done with school and put his name back on it. So then he couldn't have Pro-Day with the other guys. And then when he's asked about it, he tells people he didn't have anything to do with it and he hadn't authorized his name to be used... even though he was personally displaying the add on his own facebook page (from what I understand.)

It's just a steaming glop of mess and I worry about his judgment in personal matters.

I hear you but my concern is not as great. I followed him last season and think he can be great. As Beerlover said, drop a few pounds and focus on football and he will be a welcome addition. I think the bad press flaired & he became resentful. I still see it as one time incident.

The only thing I find crazy is him lying and the fact that he didn't use better judgement so that he could participate in his pro day.

Honestly, to me it sounds like the school was being a little petty.

I don't have an issue with him taking his name off the flyer during the season and putting it back on afterward.

Other than the fact he didn't use foresight.

But mistakes/bad judgment doesn't bother me. Not learning from those situations does.

draft is an emotional time for teams as well as players with millions of dollars being risked. Teams may think it better to bypass a potential hot spot than gamble on a guy. Jones college was same one that had players missing from games and may have been why Yates went so low as he did not have hs full team to bring home victories. I am glad to see McNair allowing more risk possible players to be selected.

How in the world did Green Bay recently get a QB late in first round that might turn out to be one of best in NFL?
