OverallPositionProj. Rnd.
05/03/2013 - Patriots sign 19 Rookie Free Agents...Jones, 23, played in 13 games with 12 starts as a senior, posting 31 tackles, nine passes defensed and a team-leading five interceptions. The 6-1, 187-pounder was also a standout special teams player during his time at Rutgers. - New England Patriots

03/28/2013 - 2013 Rutgers Pro Day: Brandon Jones, CB (6-0 1/4, 191) - Jones ran the 40 in 4.56 and 4.59 seconds. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.08 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.76 seconds. He also had 17 lifts on the bench. Like Cooper, Jones - who was not at the combine - looked good in the positional workouts. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

12/02/2012 - CB Brandon Jones left the Louisville game with a lower body injury and did not return. His status for the bowl game will be determined closer to game time.

09/13/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: Quarterback B.J. Daniels makes the Bulls go. Though the Scarlet Knights have had good success against him in the past, Flood is taking nothing for granted. "I think you have to be ready to play good, sound defense every play because he's got the ability to expose you on defense every time he has that ball in his hands." PLAYERS TO WATCH: CB Brandon Jones has made big plays in each of the first two games. He'll get plenty of chances in this one as well, as the Scarlet Knights will have to figure out how to slow down USF's standout wide receiver Andre Davis. - The Sports Xchange

09/10/2012 - WEEK 2 BIG EAST SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Rutgers cornerback Brandon Jones, who was named BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Week, came up with his second touchdown of the young season in Rutgers' 26-0 win against Howard as he scored on a 6-yard blocked punt return in the second quarter to put the Scarlet Knights ahead 13-0. It was Rutgers' third blocked kick of the 2012 season and it came one week after Jones' interception return for a touchdown in the season-opening win at Tulane. - BIG EAST football

09/07/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: Rutgers dominated Tulane's ground attack, allowing eight yards on 16 attempts. That doesn't bode well for Howard, which doesn't want to be forced into situations where it has to throw the ball and come from behind. PLAYERS TO WATCH: CB Brandon Jones -- Jones had a pick-six against Tulane, and might have had a couple of more had he been able to hold onto the ball. The fifth-year senior has always struggled to stay healthy, but showed in the opener what a force he can be when he's on the field. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2012 - Jawan Jamison ran for a 46-yard touchdown, Brandon Jones returned an interception for a score to lead Rutgers to a 24-12 victory over Tulane on Saturday. Jamison scored the first points of the game on his long run up the middle with 9:42 left in the second quarter, weaving his way through the Tulane defense. Tulane managed one sustained drive, settling for a 32-yard field goal at the start of the fourth quarter to pull within 10-6 after moving 69 yards in 17 plays. The next time Tulane had the ball, Jones stepped in front of a pass at the Green Wave 14 and scored easily. Rutgers tacked on a 43-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter to make the score 24-6. It was the head-coaching debuts for Rutgers' Kyle Flood, who replaced current Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano in January, and Tulane's Curtis Johnson. - AP Sports
