Hands: Dwight Jones should be a top pick with his combination of size/athleticism. His hands often fail him which could and should send him plummeting down draft boards. He’s a body catcher that is prone to drops. He can’t be counted on to catch the football in tight spots or down the stretch of games. He can find the ball down the field and does an excellent job of high pointing it to make big plays.
Route Running: Jones is a physical route runner that needs to work on his awareness of coverage. Too often he misses openings in the zone and overruns plays or just flat runs himself out of the play because of bad eyes. He doesn’t run crisply into or out of breaks and in general needs some refinement in this area. He does a nice job of selling his routes and double moves.
