Jones was originally named to Pro Football Focus’ early-season All-American team a couple of months ago. Since then, the cornerback has accounted for 33 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions, three tackles for loss and one quarterback sack as a junior. He also snagged a pick-6 against Indiana, which helped secure the victory in the Huskers’ 27-22 win over the Hoosiers.

By the end of Nebraska’s regular season, Jones has become one of the best corners in the Big Ten. We highlighted how he rose to the occasion in Tale of the Tape.
