Miami concluded their 2013 NFL Draft with the pick of FS Don Jones out of Arkansas State with their last pick in the 7th round. Jones is a very good athlete and has nice size at 5'11 1/8, 191 lbs, and very good speed as he has run a 4.41 40. He also has a 42" vertical jump and a broad jump of 10'-7". He finished his senior season with 74 tackles, 2 pass breakups and 1 interception.
Jones lacks elite size, but shows adequate instincts and athleticism. He must learn to take better angles, but we like his active demeanor down the middle of the field. Jones also has the ability to contribute on special teams as a non-returner.
At Arkansas State's pro day, Jones ran a 4.42- and 4.40-second 40-yard dash, had a 42-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-7 broad jump. He ran the short-shuttle in 4.48 seconds, the three-cone drill in 7.19 seconds and had 17 reps of 225 pounds.
