Draft Scout Christian Jones News
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 95/9. Christian Jones, OLB, Florida State, 6-3, 240, 4.68, 3...Active, athletic, physical tackler who shows excellent lateral agility and chases sideline to sideline. Tenacious enough against the run to take on and shed lead blockers, yet appears natural dropping into pass coverage. Frankly: Must check into reports he did not pass drug test at combine. Otherwise Jones was a productive, durable, versatile three-year starter with all the physical ability to play that key outside linebacker spot on either side of the formation. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

09/19/13 - Florida State suspends two defensive starters...Florida State will be without two starters this weekend after linebacker Christian Jones and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman were suspended Thursday for an unspecified violation of team rules. The Seminoles (2-0) face FCS opponent Bethune-Cookman (3-0) on Saturday. "It is (disappointing), but it's all correctable, and it's all done," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said, according to ESPN.com. "But we have to go abide by a certain set of guidelines."
Jones was the team's leading tackler last year and has 13 tackles and two quarterback hurries in two games this year. Goldman is a first-year starter with two tackles so far this season. Their replacements for Saturday's game will be sophomore Terrance Smith at linebacker and Demonte McAllister and Nile Lawrence-Stample on the defensive line. - The Sports Xchange
09/11/13 - Scouting the run defense: The Seminoles' third-ranked defense last season was one of the best at holding opposing rushers to under 100 yards a game. But when FSU lost three defensive linemen to the NFL, the defensive front became a big question mark. But in the line's first test Monday against Pitt, the Seminoles kept their domination up -- on the road, no less -- by holding the Panthers to 96 total yards rushing.
Even more impressive was that Pitt's top runner, Isaac Bennet, who missed much of preseason practice with an injury, returned to play in the game and was held to just 35 yards. Nevada, which ranks 33rd nationally in rushing at 219 yards a game, loves to run. The Wolfpack are actually second in the nation now with 115 total rushing attempts, behind only BYU, which notched 550 rushing yards against on Texas last Saturday. - The Sports Xchange
