Another pre-draft visitor. Another defensive back. Aaron Wilson is reporting Alabama corner Cyrus Jones is being brought in for a visit this weekend.

That would make Jones the 16th prospect to visit, and the 12th defensive back. Standing under 5’10, 196 pounds, Jones started 34 total games for the Crimson Tide. In his career, he picked off seven passes and forced four fumbles while being an excellent punt returner.
But I came away less than pleased in my draft profile, noting a lack of run support and ability to find the ball vertically as his biggest problems. He’s projected as a 3rd or 4th round corner.
