Draft czar Gil Brandt reports some are concerned over how Arkansas State S Don Jones will pick up a team's system.

Brandt then said, "... but I have to say that when I talked to him on the phone, I was really impressed with this guy. He knew the answers to all the questions I had. He also called me back; when you get a guy who will call you back at 7:30 a.m., that's pretty good. The Alabama state champion in the 100, 200 and 400-meter dash in high school clocked 4.42- and 4.40-second 40-yard dashes at his pro day. Because he runs so well, he has the potential to be a corner."

Arkansas State S Don Jones worked out for the Browns.

Jones also went on an official visit with the Dolphins. For a third day defensive back generating some interest, Jones continues to fly under the radar, and teams likely see upside since he is a former running back.

Arkansas State DB Don Jones is visiting the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Jones is a former running back who plays the cover position with physicality. He has experience as a nickel back but was not a popular commodity throughout the drfat process. The former JUCO player is from Alabama, so we aren;t sure if this counts as a local visit.
