Markus Jones, OLB-DE, Angelo State #43

6027, 255, 4.76

Notes: From Fort Worth, TX. Redshirted in 2014. Recorded 25 tackles, 6.5 tackles-for-loss and 1.5 sacks in 11 games in 2015. Posted 54 tackles, 16 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 7 blocked kicks in 2016. Had 63 tackles and 10.5 sacks in 2017. Notched 84 tackles, 36.5 TFL, 17.5 sacks, 4 FF, 1 fumble recovery and 2 blocked kicks in 2018.

Positives: Terrific production. Explosive off the snap, gets upfield, can flatten and work inside. Generates power with speed and can work back inside on the pass rush. Good hand use and closing speed. Relentless. Excels on special teams.

Negatives: Level of competition. Less-than-ideal size as down lineman, limited exposure dropping back as a linebacker.

Summary: Should make a team with special teams ability and has the skills to carve out a role on defense.
