Scouting the draft: Arkansas State S Don Jones

Name: Don Jones, S, Arkansas State

Overview: You can’t teach speed. That’s how Don Jones, a strong safety for the Arkansas State Red Wolves and junior college transfer, has drawn interest around the NFL, including from the Patriots. The Baltimore Sun reported that he conducted a private workout for the Patriots recently. At the Arkansas State pro day, he ran a 4.42 and 4.40 40-yard dash, according to NFLDraftScout.com. He also recorded a remarkable 42-inch vertical jump, which has skyrocketed his draft stock. While he was estimated as a third- or fourth-round pick originally, that has more than likely changed. For his senior season, he recorded an unofficial 72 tackles with one interception and two passes defensed.
