Breaking Texas A&M Football News:

Jaylon Jones officially announced he will be foregoing his last season of eligibility and entering the NFL draft. This is definitely a blow to the defense that could very much use his defensive leadership on the field next season, but we wish the best of luck to Jaylon as we know he will represent the Aggies well in the NFL.

This past year, as a member of the 2022 Texas A&M football team, Jones accumulated 27 solo tackles, 6 assisted tackles, and 2 pass deflections. Jones will end his Aggie career playing 29 games with 98 total tackles, 14 pass deflections, and 3 INTs. Jones will be missed, as he anchored the secondary with his experience.

According to TheDraftNetwork.com,

Jaylon Jones is a tall and long corner with good overall size that embraces a physical brand of football. For a bigger corner, he plays to that size with how he competes to get off blocks, tackle, and defend the run. He is aggressive to invade the catch point and showcases good ball skills. His blend of size, length, physicality, and ball skills projects him well to playing in a zone defense. Jones is a highly-touted recruit that has gained notable experience against top competition already across his first two seasons at Texas A&M. For a bigger corner, Jones is an explosive athlete that isn’t lacking anything physically. Jones has excellent length and it shows in his ability to tackle outside his frame and how he uses it to close on the football in the air. Jones is a young prospect that turns 21 in April of 2023.

Jones is waiting for the combine but is seen as a Top 10 DB in the upcoming draft and is looking to be a round 2-3 pick. Good luck Jaylon!
