A second team all-Mountain West pick last season, Jones burned up the track with a 4.34 forty at his pro day. The 49ers envision him as a special teams demon, so he'll have a shot to make the team even with the team's glut of safeties.

The 49ers drafted sixth-round S Colin Jones with the idea that he'd be a special teams standout.

49ers selected TCU S Colin Jones with the No. 190 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Second team all-Mountain West last season, Jones ran a 4.34 40 at his Pro Day, and has been deemed by some as a late bloomer. The owner of solid measurables across the board, he should prove to be a solid special-teams player in San Francisco if he makes the team.
