Overview:

I had the pleasure of watching Greg Jones play at Michigan State his whole career. He is one of my favorite prospects in this years draft. He is a tremendous athlete and plays incredibly smart. He possess some of the best instincts I’ve seen from a LB. He does have some things to work on, but he is a good all-round player.
