Default Player Analysis: DT Jason Jones

Jason Jones
6'5 1/4
275 lbs
13 games/3 starts: 31 tackles, 5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles

Tied for 1st place in sacks among rookies with pass-rush specialists Cliff Avril and Trevor Scott, despite playing in fewer games and playing with an injury. Ranked 3rd among rookies with 3 forced fumbles too. He really had a spectacular rookie year.

I'm predicting a Justin Tuck role for him this year after the loss of Hayesworth. We all know when Fat Al would split out at LE while KVB moved inside to DT. It was very effective. Plus, sometimes Al would drop into a zone coverage, whether in the flats or whatever. It'd confuse the hell out of the offensive lines and QB.

Jason Jones has that versatility. Hell, he was profiled as a DE by Scott when he was entering the Draft. You guys remember the Pittsburgh game? The game when both Fat Al and KVB had to sit out? J.J. raped! He doesn't play like a normal DT. He's long and quick, and doesn't bull rush. He'll pull a spin move or run around a guy as a DE would an OT. I mean he looked like a freakin' OLB at times. 1 sack was when he was double-teamed. 1 sack was from an end-tackle twist, where Jacob Ford went inside and J.J. went outside from their spots. J.J. took the long way, and still sacked Big Ben and forced a fumble. Highlights of it can be seen here!

He's not gonna replace Haynesworth. No one can. But it will be fun to see what Wash and Chuck Cecil do in order to bring pressure. Our DL is rather spectacular. We have a great system. Haynesworth excelled in our system, and it will be interesting to see how he fares in Washington. Meanwhile, we still have an above average DT group. Jason Jones will be a part of that. Plus, the Titans have arguably the best secondary in the NFL. 3 Pro Bowlers in Cortland Finnegan, Michael Griffin, and the Chris Hope (<3). I think Nick Harper is vastly under-rated; he's a sure tackler and great zone CB. The front office also brought back Vincent Fuller. Vinny is smart as hell, and is a CB/S tweener. Nevertheless, he's 6'1, 190, tips balls, and intercepts them for TD's (2 INT return for TD's in '07).

I'm ranting now. Anyway, J.J. may have the biggest role on the DL next season, and I'm excited. He's very much comparable to Jaron Gilbert, who's in this year's draft class. Look for the Lions to go after him with their 2nd RD pick.

So, discuss J.J. in this thread, and if you're a little aroused after reading this, don't worry - it's only natural.

Even though he had that crazy game at DT, I think his real potential is at DE. I wanted the lions to pick him up so badly...but whatever. I think he's gonna be ballin this year, but in spurts (probably because he'll be moving all around the line).

I dunno what J.J.'s real position is. I think we'll find out this year. Obviously, the coaching staff is confident in his ability - they wouldn't have low-balled Haynesworth is they didn't think the DEF couldn't stand to lose him.

As of now, he's a DT. Its where he played last year, and he excelled. The plan could be for him to stay at UT.

But, Jeff Fisher is...creative. He had Michael Griffin play CB for the first half of his rookie season. He was serious about it too. We all thought, "What the hell Fish? The dude was a great safety in college. Our FS sucks, and you wanna make him a CB? ...son of a..." Then midseason, he placed Griffin at FS and he was awesome. No doubt playing CB helped him prepare himself for FS. Maybe they're doing that with J.J., thus by Tuck comparison. Perhaps they placed him at DT to prepare himself?

Vanden Bosch, Jevon Kearse, and Tony Brown are set to be FA's after this season. That's the startin Front 4 last season, aside from Haynesworth. Will we bring all of them back? Probably not. Can J.J. take over any of the vacated positions? Probably yes. It's just which one will be vacated?

I want to see KVB back, as well as the Freak but I think if anything, Kearse is gone. KVB is a tough case but we have no legitimate starter to replace both, so KVB is probably back even though he has been frequently injured since resigning him. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we went out and took someone like Michael Johnson as a project

I honest to goodness worry for Albert in Washington. We all know how winded he gets, and with the Titans, he was able to be rotated to keep him fresh and effective. Washington has 100-million invested in him, so I doubt they'll use him as sparingly as we did. His risk of injury will go up because of this, and he won't play through injury now that he's been paid.

Meanwhile, Jason Jones is officially up to 280 now. He's within 5 lbs of his goal of 285 by TC.
