Jones was on track to be a first-round pick in 2017 before an Achilles tear at Washington’s pro day. The Eagles nabbed him at No. 43 overall, but he’s struggled to stay healthy ever since. After three seasons with the Birds, Jones joined the Jaguars last year.
Jones became one of the early standouts of Jacksonville’s secondary before injuries got in the way. Unfortunately, he’s yet to play a full pro season.
\Still, new head coach Urban Meyer sees Jones as a part of the solution in 2021 and possibly beyond. Through the first four weeks of the 2020 season, Pro Football Focus had him ranked as the very best cornerback in the NFL. He also enjoyed one of his best performances against the Texans in Week 5, including an interception off of Deshaun Watson. Then, he notched another INT against Aaron Rodgers.
All in all, Jones finished 2020 with 26 stops, two INTs, and nine passes defensed.
