No team in the FBS was better when it came to shutting down opposing quarterbacks than Florida in 2016. A large reason why was the play of second-team All-SEC cornerback Quincy Wilson.

While his production was prolific, one thing that stands out is his relatively low yards per catch against top teams. The Pirates targeted him whenever they needed an offensive burst, which led to plenty of receiver screens, quick slants, and other targets near the line of scrimmage. And Jones lived up to his status as the teams most reliable weapon — his 71.5% catch rate was impressive, especially for a player who was a) targeted so much and b) often double- and triple-teamed as his offenses only legitimate weapon.
His performance at the NFL Combine also suggests he can translate his NCAA skill to the next level. Jones ran a solid 4.45-second 40-yard dash, but really stood out in the agility drills. The 62 athlete ranked among the top wideouts in the broad jump and shuttle runs to put him squarely in first round consideration this spring.
The Bills will lighten his load in 2017, freeing him up to do more with less in the NFL. Hell join a receiving corps that includes Sammy Watkins.
