It's easier to name those who haven't offered him than it is those who have offered. Jones has been described as a freak, pocessing size, speed, strength and quickness that allow him to dominate almost anyone he lines up against. Jones has great hands, has a 41" verticle jump, and he has an excellent ability to get separation from the defender.
