Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Solid scorer off the dribble
Solid mid-range shooter
Solid rebounder for his size
Adequate defender that can get steals
Still needs to improve his shooting
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Not an elite ball handler
Can be undisciplined defensively
Only an average athlete
Colby Jones is a skilled combo guard that has a variety of skills that could be useful at the next level. He is a sound offensive player that can knock down mid-range shots and can score off the dribble, and he also can run the point if needed to do so.
On the other hand, he will need to improve his three-point shot and free throw shooting, and he can tend to struggle when matched up against more athletic opponents. He is a fundamentally sound, basketball player whose versatility could make him an intriguing pick for an NBA team in the mid to late second round range on draft day.
