T.J. Jones

School: Notre Dame

Position: Wide Receiver

HT: 5’11” WT: 190

WEST All-Star

Jones could be a good late-round find for a team looking to strengthen their receiving corps. As a senior, Jones led Notre Dame in receptions (70), receiving yards (1108), and touchdowns (9), and surpassed the 100-yard mark five times in 2013.

Jones doesn’t boast elite speed or great size for the position, but he’s a superb route runner and has great hands. He fits the mold of a Packers receiver. He can play both in the slot and on the outside.

The East-West Shrine Game is a great opportunity for Jones to show he can play well on a big stage. Jones played well against Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl with five receptions for 66 yards and a rushing touchdown, but Jones needs to continue this success and show he can hold his own against some of the top talent in college football.

Jones will get his chance in the all-star game this weekend.
