2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Marvin Jones, WR, California
By running a 4.46 at the combine, Jones did a lot to bolster his draft stock. Most saw him as a 4.55 possession receiver, but his postseason evaluation can only help him. Jones is a natural fit as a No. 2 receiver who can beat press coverage and turn a short route into a big play. He possesses a great short area quickness, yet he may not play as fast as his timed speed.
Jones is a good short-to-intermediate route runner, but gets lazy when running longer routes down field. He adjusts to the ball in the air well and has average body control. An average leaper. He reads defenses and can find open areas under 10 yards. Rarely secures the ball using his body and can catch with his hands extended. He needs to show more burst and snap when route running. Corners can usually stay with his him since he bends the corners of his routes.
If Jones can add suddenness to his game, he can take a big step toward becoming a full-time starter.
