Scouting Report on Richetti Jonesby Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Jones possesses an array of pass rush moves and reads plays very well, not over-committing to the outside pass rush too often. He sets up his opponent well by mixing up what he does and reacts well to the run, playing off blocks to make plays. As a pass rusher, Jones gets off the ball well and has an excellent motor. Heâ€™s excellent in pursuit and is quick enough to beat tackles outside, although speed isnâ€™t his best asset. Jones changes direction well enough to give offensive linemen fits when they overcompensate to his outside rush and he uses his hands to keep them off balance. Jones is a sure tackler in the run game and plays physical at the point of attack. A bit undersized, Jones separates himself by constantly working to get to the play and never quitting.
