Justin Jones (born August 28, 1996) is an American football defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at NC State.

College career

Following his senior season, Jones was selected to play in the 2018 Senior Bowl.[1]

Professional career

On November 29, 2017, it was announced that Jones had accepted his invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.[2] He impressed scouts by showing his agility during Senior Bowl practices and added value to his draft stock.[3] On January 27, 2018, Jones played in the 2018 Reese's Senior Bowl and was part of Denver Broncos' head coach Vance Joseph's South team that lost 45-16 to the North team, coached by Houston Texans' head coach Bill O'Brien. Jones attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and completed all of the combine and positional drills. On March 19, 2018, he participated at NC State's pro day, but opted to stand on his combine numbers and only performed positional drills and the short shuttle. At the conclusion of the pre-draft process, Jones was projected to be a fifth or sixth round pick by NFL draft experts and scouts.[4] He was ranked as the 14th best defensive tackle prospect in the draft by Scouts Inc. and was ranked the 20th best defensive tackle by DraftScout.com.[5]
