SCOUTING: In south Florida, when someone uses the words ‘the best” when describing football talent, you have to be careful in this region of the country.

Remember, this is an area that produces more high level talent than anywhere in the nation - and if you do your research and homework - it  isn’t even close.

With so many athletes playing at the next level and beyond, college and NFL coaches know that when you get it done in south Florida, there is NO question how productive you will be the rest of your career.

While many are pointing their finger at this prospect our that prospect, proclaiming them the best, those people really need to watch more football - and not the t-shirt and shorts kind of game.

What this young man has always been is a cut above. No matter where he has played in  his brief career, Jones-Bell has dominated - and with college coaches offering at a record pace, this may be Florida’s most productive pass catchers, when all is said and done.

Watch him perform and you are convinced that this is the player who continues to get better and showcase his many skills against elite competition.

His ability to move the chains and put the Chiefs in a position to win games is why this young man has separated himself from a pack of quality receivers.

If you have already watched him play, you know how solid he is and what a difference maker he can be.
