During his best years, you could make the argument that Reshad Jones was one of the most underrated safeties in the NFL.
Jones spent all ten seasons of his career with the Dolphins. He was the 36th defensive back selected in the 2010 NFL Draft when Miami picked him in the 5th round (163rd overall). He was a hard hitter and a ball hawk, intercepting 22 passes and defending 55 in 113 starts, and had 10.5 career sacks as well. His performance was good enough to earn him two Pro Bowl appearances, one in 2015 and the other in 2017. He led the team in tackles in both of those seasons as well, and had four career touchdowns off of interceptions. In 2016, Jones was voted by his peers as the 64th best player in the league on the NFL’s Top 100 List.
Jones had a solid three-year career at Georgia, achieving Second Team All-ACC honors twice, and was also a Second Team All-American during his junior campaign.
He was one of the most steady and consistent performers for the Miami Dolphins during some rough seasons, and he became something of a fan favorite because of it. He has not played since 2019.
