NC State safety Josh Jones did not end up sneaking into the first round of the NFL Draft, but on the plus side for Jones, he’s likely to go in the second round on Friday night. Jones is one of the top defensive backs still available, and he’s met with Houston, Tampa, Cleveland, Oakland, and Miami.
On ESPN.com’s list of best available remaining prospects, Jones checks in at No. 14. He could come off the board pretty quickly, based off of that list, but there is always a significant level of unpredictability that comes with the draft since NFL teams like to trade picks all the dang time. Still, those are some teams to keep an eye on tonight when it’s their turn to make selections.
Jones had a great NFL Combine and he’s also coming off a career season at NC State in which he tallied 109 tackles.
