The Miami Dolphins traded up into the bottom of the 5th round in order to secure junior safety Reshad Jones of the Georgia Bulldogs, and they appear willing to allow Reshad to battle Tyrone Culver and a number of others for the starting Free Safety position. With 9 interceptions in his last two seasons in Athens, and a number of highlight reel big hits to his name, with ideal size and excellent overall speed, many were perplexed as to how the underclassman could fall so low in the draft. While he had his reasons for coming out, he was definitely a player that would have benefited from staying in school for another year. If you are able to put together highlights of Reshad from an entire season, or multiple seasons, you can create a very impressive collection of clips. However, if you limit to just three games, he looks a lot more ordinary, and you see that he has plenty of bad tape. He is not very agile and doesn't possess quick hips, something that showed at the Combine when he turned in the poorest agility measurements (4.54 shuttle, 7.43 cone) of any defensive back in Indianapolis. He was often late reading the ball as well as the receiver's route. His tackling angles were sometimes poor and he ran into issues either tackling too high or falling off the tackle too low. What he possesses is excellent straight line burst and acceleration, which showed at the Combine. He reminds me of a smaller but faster version of Kam Chancellor, the senior out of Virginia Tech that was drafted in the 5th round by the Seattle Seahawks. The good news is, I was a fan of Kam Chancellor's pro potential. I do not expect Reshad Jones to win the starting job as a rookie.
