The Wedge Scouting Report: Deion Jones, LB

a boo boo booo boo bah

a weee weee weee wah

Oh hey there…just ignore the baby talk its not for you…Its for this little cutie

WedewithB abyAlien

Adorable isn’t he!

These little Corozar Bay Moon Babies are the cuties things in the universe

a boo boo boo bah…(Wedge shakes a rattle)

Mine?  No no.  I picked this little guy up and about 3000 more as my latest weapon.

You see, the idea is you land on an unsuspecting planet you want to destroy and you give them the “please take my baby” bit.  Who can resist?  Look how adorable he is with his big sad eyes.  Then you fly off and leave the baby behind.

Then after dark…

Its a whole different baby

On average A Corozar Bay Moon Baby can eat about 60 square miles, inhabited or not, in a 48 hour period.  Pretty impressive!  These little guys have a rabid appetite.

So you have to make a few landings on the planet of you want it devoured within a week.

These babies and there appetite remind me of the attacking linebacker I want the Dolphins to draft.

Deion Jones is one of those linebackers.

The LSU Linebacker was a force for the Tigers in 2015.

Its easy to miss talent like Jones on a talented team like LSU.

LSU puts so much talent in the NFL you should not overlook anyone on their roster.

The 6’1 222 pund linebacker might seem small to some, but that did not stop him from racking up 100 tackles, 13.5 for a loss.

That was his only year starting for LSU.  Jones didn’t start until Kwon Alexander left for the NFL in 2015.  Hey Kown Alexander?  Didn’t I do a scouting report on him last year?

Yep!  And ironically many scouts compare Jones to Alexander.

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Mississippi State

At the combine Jones caught the attention of the NFL by running a 4.59 40 yard dash.

He also had a 33 inch vertical jump and a 120 inch broad jump at the combine.

But it was his pro day that really set him apart and has him moving up[ the boards.

Deion Jones ran a blazing 4.38 40 yard dash at his pro day.  WOW!

He also upped his vertical jump by 2 1/2 inches and did 18 reps on the bench press.

I know some Dolfans are looking forward to drafting Jones on day 3 of the draft.

But the secret is out.

I’m expecting Deion Jones to be drafted by the time round 3 is over.

So if the Dolphins want this attacking linebacker – they will have to make that move early.

Just like the people who adopt this adorable baby should get the fuck off their planet before it gets dark!

If Deion Jones was an alien weapon of destruction…

he would be the deadly Corozar Bay Moon Baby!

    A lady at work is a huge Steelers fan, she watches all their games from a Steelers hosted bar. Her and her friends have seen enough of Big Ben, want him replaced, because he doesn’t get it done in big games.

  2. steveccnv says:

    Bradford’s play and ability to stay healthy says, he doesn’t have the right to be upset about the trade. Play better and stay on the field and they don’t make that trade.

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Lou, you want to trade Wake then make a case for why he’s done. So why would a team trade for him? LOL

  4. steveccnv says:

    Last yr the Saints had a wholesale party dumping players left and right, this yr it was the Eagles. We got invited to both parties 😉

  5. olddolphan says:

    IT’S OVER IN CORAL GABLES! –#17 FAU has defeated the #1 ranked Miami Hurricanes 4-3 in a nail biter. Ace FAU reliever Cameron Ragsdale got all 3 UM batters in the 9th to preserve this very important victory! –Weather permitting, these two teams will meet again in Coral Gables next month (an earlier scheduled meeting in Boca Raton was rained out). —SO, FAU has gone on the road this season and defeated highly ranked Mississippi State both games in Starkville and also beaten UM on their home turf. Somehow, I’ve got a hunch these two will meet, again, in the NCAA tournament. – – But, for now, it’s time to pop A COLORADO KOOL AID!! – – We have defeated the evil empire!!

  7. getterdone says:

    Tim, I figured you & Son would like that Heavy Metal Bluegrass style. Good stuff. I bet OD likes it too.

  8. wyoming85 says:

  9. steveccnv says:

    If we sign Josh Norman we lose our 2017 3rd round comp pick, so this transaction will never happen.

  10. New Age says:

    It makes a ton of sense. Instead of reaching if Hargreaves isn’t there or even reaching for Hargreaves(possible?), you take BPA. Norman is really, really good and fits exactly what we want to do. Like Seattle and NE, sometimes you have to fill in top spots with top talent.

  11. Tim Knight says:

    As of now this defense will likely be 3/4 different. New coaching staff, different approach from Vance Joseph with a press scheme.

    LDE Williams
    LDT Suh
    RDT Mitchell/Phillips
    RDE Branch/Rookie/?

    SOLB Misi/Hewitt
    MLB Alonso/Misi/Vigil
    WOLB Jenkins/Hewitt

    CB Maxwell
    CB *Norman (I would not be shocked, lol)
    S Jones
    S Abdul-Quddus

    Totally new defense. We’ve never seen it. I can’t say yay or nay. 🙂

  12. Brian in NY says:

    If you think that we are going to be in salary cap hell in the next few years as it stands now, see what happens if we were to sign Norman. The panthers dumped him because he wouldn’t take the 11 million they were offering. He wants between $15-$16 million a year. Pass.

    • Tim Knight says:

      2 year run. That’s how we’re set up. We have decisions to make next offseason as well but I think it depends on 2016 results.

      If we don’t win in the next two seasons we blow it up and eat some cap for a couple of years as we rebuild.

      Ross hired Tannenbaum to turn this team around, not dwell in development forever. Ross doesn’t think you rebuild around a 5th year QB. That’s a big part of this, so is Suh. Just saying! 😉

  13. getterdone says:

    We swing a deal for Norman, I’m ok with that. Then the draft is really wide open…lol
    Landing Norman would also be a further clue into pushing Tbomb into trading UP to get someone they covet from the top 10 of the draft. Putting a lot of emphasis on winning now & continuing to win later.

  14. Rockphin says:

    Here’s an interesting tidbit that I just realized. By trading for Maxwell and Alonso rather than picking them up in free agency we keep our compensatory picks next year

  15. finfanrob says:

    just dropped in to see if you all solved the problems of the T’s. guess not.

    i dont get into the draft talk but i do think the only way the fins have a successful draft it to not draft any body that names start with a T.

    hmmm a thought i bet if the fins got tanny to change his last name to wailekizeilaizst he would be the best qb in football

  16. Rockphin says:

    So we get two potential starters and preserve potentially two comp draft picks by not filling those needs in FA by dropping back 5 spots. I am liking that move more and more especially if both play like they did the year before last it will be a coup

  17. Rockphin says:

    Drive by over Nogtih all

  18. Brian in NY says:

    Tim,
    Tannenbaum is on record as saying he want to build through the draft and FA, so I don’t think they’ll be in blow it up mode in two years if he stands by that philosophy.

    • steveccnv says:

      I don’t know why people still say blow it up on here. Ross isn’t a blow it up type of guy, and there really haven’t been many in the NFL lately. Other than Clev. this yr no one really comes to mind, except maybe the jets a few yrs ago.
