Donald Jones, WR, Youngstown State

A junior college transfer, Jones only had two full years of college football, and that is at little Youngstown State. He had a very impressive debut for the Penguins in 2008, grabbing 31 balls for 510 yards and 7 TDs in twelve games. He was voted All Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year. This year Jones exploded with a 77 reception, 790 yards and 6 TDs campaign, and was voted to the Conference's first Team Squad. Donald Jones is elusive, and runs smooth, albeit, simple routes and changes direction quickly. He has good leaping ability and body control, and is adept at reading coverage and shows solid hands. With good vision, Jones works hard as a blocker and is a quick learned. However, Jones lacks lower body strength; he has below average speed (4.56) -- does not have a second gear. He will sometimes get caught from behind, because he lacks explosiveness after the catch. Jones also lacks experience against elite competition, so he must improve route running. Jones is a productive receiver at the Football Championship Subdivision level. He has some potential as a slot /possession wide out in the NFL; a project with enticing promise. Despite his lack of experience against better competition and the absence of big play ability, he would be drafted most likely late on Day two.
