  1. Javancy Jones is one of the most complete defensive football players in the country. He not only leads the nation in tackles for loss, but he’s among the leaders in sacks and tackles too. At 6’2″ 250 lbs. with 4.6 speed, 450 lb bench press, and unparalleled quickness coming off the ball, Javancy Jones is a disruptive force for opponents and consistently forces action on the opponents side of the line of scrimmage. Furthermore, Javancy has been consistent with his production from his inaugural season at JSU making the Freshman All-American team.
