Browns, UDFA. Brother of Green Bay WR James Jones. Enters a Browns WR corps as probably the fifth- or sixth-best WR, but has the skills to eventually move into a starting role – especially if Josh Gordon is gone. The offense is rebuilding, and I can’t imagine what’s going to happen with Manziel at QB, but I can see him having a ceiling of WR3 on this team.
All-Star Games: Shrine Game.
Positives: Though short, he has adequate bulk for his height. Runs with good speed and acceleration. Has above-average hands and can extend well for passes away from his body. Good concentration on tipped passes. Runs fairly crisp routes, and knows how to shield defenders from the ball in the air. Shows good balance after the catch, and is very agile and elusive in open field. Very nimble on the sidelines and can catch near the line, change direction and get upfield. Above-average body control, and can adjust well to off-target passes. Willing downfield blocker who will hit aggressively.
Negatives: Short for the position, with below-average hand size. Below-average ball security. Struggles on passes where he has to fight for the ball. Though he is a willing blocker, he isn’t especially effective. Questionable decisions after the catch at times – will come back behind the first down marker trying to break a long run.
Projection: Worth a late-round dynasty draft pick, for sure.
