4/24/13: Jones has shown the ability to rush the passer over the past three years. He had a huge senior season chasing down the quarterback with 12.5 sacks. Jones also had 42 tackles and 19 tackles for a loss with two forced fumbles. He recorded 47 tackles with 14 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles as a junior. Jones had 39 tackles with 11 tackles for a loss, six sacks and a forced fumble in 2012. He is a sleeper prospect who could be a nice mid-rounder.
Glad we took a DT. Pretty quick at shedding blockers for a DT.
26 sacks in three years as a DT. Man could be a keeper
Mocked him to Texans in 7th. Solid depth with Hunter returning. I know it's not what many wanted but let it play out. Texans should have a solid rotation.
Wrote this off my final mock, now for informational purposes only. Interestingly I was the only one who projected Earl Mitchell to Texans in 2010 (5th). Never thought of myself as expert on position but maybe......
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 blockers 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.
Double digit sacks last year. I mean I know it's the MAC but a DT garnering defensive POY is impressive.
When asked to compare himself with NFL players, he said he's similar to J J Watt.
Jones on 610am now
I'm thinking he has Sean Cody's sense of humor, at least.
I'm geeked out about this kid
I like that fire. Hoping he plays to his own comparison
Who was last year's UDFA WR who said he was going to be the next Andre, and then couldn't even make it through the OTA's before quitting and going home?
He actually does remind me of watt with how he rushes from the interior, but he's nowhere near the athlete that Watt is...
I think what he means is he is relentless. And from the vidoes i see it. He dont seem to even give up. Could turn out to be a nice pick up for us.
The kids got a real story, MAC DPOY. OK it's not the SEC, but guys like this are
often the biggest scrappers, they find a way to make the roster.
Most definitely got to be out of the 3 tech..... where Antonio plays, where Amobi played.
We'll see nothing like that if he ever makes the rotation as he'll be playing the nose, where DTs normally disappear. But if he's got the kind of hustle & explosion off the ball that I'm hearing, he'll wear out an OL & that's good for every body else.
Like this pick.
Reminds me of Short with motor and speed even if MAC.
