|National Football League Draft Profile - Arthur Jones |
|Selection||26 (157 overall)|
|High School||Union Endicott (Endicott, New York)|
|A productive junior campaign in 2008, earning All-Big East First-Team honors was temepered by an injury-plagued senior season, marred by a torn pectoral muscle after the 2008 campaign and a torn meniscus in his left knee this past season...Played in nine games in 2009, recording just 19 tackles, seven TFLs and 1.5 sacks...Good bull rush and often times requires double teams to neutralize...Above-average run defender, who sheds blocks and makes plays down the line of scrimmage...Lacks top-level quickness and may be more suited to play nose tackle in the NFL...Very positive player that has leadershipqualities, but must put his injury history behind him to maximize his potential at the next level.|
