90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Christion Jones

New, comment

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at wide receiver Christion Jones.

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.

CHRISTION JONES

2014 Review:

2014 was Jones' final year at the University of Alabama. He was a slot receiver and return specialist for the Crimson Tide, securing 85 career catches for 1,030 yards (12.1 YPR) and seven touchdowns. He scored twice on punt returns and twice on kickoffs in college, also covering kicks on special teams.

The Dolphins signed him as an UDFA.

Why he might progress:

His best chance at making the roster is as a kick/punt returner.

Why he might regress:

Doesn't offer much as a pass catcher according to some scouts.

Was often off the field in running situations at Alabama. Was a poor run blocker.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Jones will have to make his presence felt of special teams if he hopes to make the teams roster.  But that is Jarvis Landry's job to lose. Jones could end up on the practice squad.
