Titans selected Penn State DT DaQuan Jones with the No. 112 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Jones (6-foot-3 3/4, 322) anchored the Nittany Lions' defense, tallying 11.5 tackles for loss and three sacks as a senior, while leading all Big Ten defensive tackles in quarterback hits. Jones ran 5.35 at the Combine with an 8-foot-5 broad jump and 25 reps on the bench. Jones lacks NFL pass-rusher traits, but plays with power, aggressiveness and physicality. He projects as a two-down lane clogger. May 10 - 12:51 PM

Penn State senior DT DaQuan Jones prefers facing double teams rather than single blocks.

"I'm a physical guy, and I like the contact," Jones said. "I don't shy away from them." NFL.com writer Gil Brandt named Jones his top senior at the position prior to the season, but the interior defensive lineman has yet to eclipse Arizona State's Will Sutton or Florida's Dominique Easley in the national eye. He leads the Nittany Lions with 18 tackles in two games.

Penn State senior DT DaQuan Jones registered a sack against Syracuse on Saturday.

Ranked by NFL.com's Gil Brandt over the summer as the top senior DT in the country, Jones lived up to the billing in a defensive-minded opening-day win against the Orange. The 6-foot-3 1/2, 330-pound Jones has good speed and was a huge reason why Penn State overcame sanctions and reached eight wins last year.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt ranks Penn State's DaQuan Jones as the top senior DT in the country.

Tennessee's Daniel McCullers, Arizona State's Will Sutton, Cal's DeAndre Coleman, and FSU's Demonte McCallister round out the top five. "The play of the 6-foot-3 1/2, 330-pound Jones was a big reason why the Nittany Lions won eight games during the 2012 season," Brandt writes. "He is a strong player with good speed (5.15 seconds in the 40-yard dash) for the position." We are surprised Minnesota's Ra'Shede Hageman did not make the list, as he projects as a prototypical five technique end/tackle combo.
