Roll the Film
Seeing is believing. He is 100 percent in the game all the time. As a result, he makes plays that few can. He defends more than one player. Opposing quarterbacks feared him.
He’s a hard hitting heady cornerback. Check out the video just at the 1:02 mark where he picks the receivers back pocket. He hits, he intercepts, he forces fumbles, and he defends passes. He has a great “sniffer” for the ball, frequently coming off his assignment towards a ball in the air, coming up with a pick or a highlight for the evening news.
The only “drawback” for Jones is a body that needs to add a little muscle to endure the physicality of the NFL. Since he is entering the NFL as a junior, that should come naturally.
I’m not a believer of a rookie NFL cornerback coming into the league as a “shutdown corner”. The game at the NFL level is faster, more physical, and each rookie must learn the scheme, their teammates, their role, their limits, and their opponents. But Sidney Jones IV will not back down. He will give all he has until he becomes the best that he can be.
Take it from NFL scouts. If he does that, he becomes a shutdown lockdown corner. Since he has faced John Ross III in practice already, it’s almost a sure thing.
