The Cleveland Browns reportedly held a private workout today with Arkansas State safety Don Jones.
Jones had what can best be described as an interesting career with the Red Wolves. He originally was recruited as a running back but left the school after his redshirt freshman year because of academic reasons.
After spending a season at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Jones returned to Arkansas State – but this time as a linebacker. He finished his senior season with 54 tackles and added eight more in Arkansas State’s win over Kent State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
While he may have gotten off to a rocky start at Arkansas State, it sounds like Jones eventually figured things out.
“I learned a whole lot (at MGCCC),” he told AL.com in a January story. “I learned how do stuff on time and be responsible so I can be a better man for the coaches. The coaches used to always be on me. So I came back with the attitude of trying to change myself, to change my image with my coaches.”
Jones – who is 5-foot-11 and 191 pounds – was not invited to the NFL Combine but reportedly impressed scouts at Arkansas State’s Pro Day, an event that representatives from the Browns attended. He has been described as being a nickleback candidate.
According to nfldraftscout.com, Jones is the 15th ranked strong safety. And he apparently knows how to tackle.
With the Browns still needing help in the secondary, Jones may be a player to keep an eye on in the latter rounds of the draft.
