2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

DaQuan Jones, DT , Penn State

This big-bodied interior defensive lineman greatly improved as a senior. Jones is now in the mix as a legit second-tier prospect at his position.

Productive in ways which do not always translate statistically. Really tough guy to move around. Stays on his mark, anchors down and occupies running lanes. Disrupts and collapses the pocket. Technique lacks at times. He will often just push any way he can, mostly ineffectively, once he gets off-kilter. Strong upper body. Looks to push and shove his way into the pocket. A calm and controlled style of play. Grinds it out. Needs to play to the whistle and show a little more effort to pursue the backside.

Stays wide and low. Remains effective against double teams. Struggles against zone blocking schemes. Doesn't use his shoulders properly when moving down the line. Solid jump off the line. Below-average closing speed. Doesn't have much snap or pop when tackling on the run. Motor runs hot and cold. Could afford to lose 10 pounds and really focus on conditioning.

Jones projects as an late second to early third round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 3rd Round

As a guy who doesn't offer a ton as a pass rusher, I think he'll slip a bit to the mid-to-late 3rd round. Should be a non-splashy, effective pro.
