Maybe my favorite WR sleeper of 2022 Drafts. DON'T draft him this high. DO take him the final round of all your drafts

Velus Jones parlayed his 4.31 speed into a third-round selection by the Chicago Bears. Outside of draft capital and his lightning-fast legs, Jones is spreadsheet warriors' worst nightmare. He bombs all the analytical benchmarks that prognosticate future NFL success. Add in that Jones is almost 25 years old, and you have a frightening use of dynasty rookie pick. Jones has an easy path to early snaps with the Bears' wide receiver room in shambles. Outside of Darnell Mooney, Chicago will trot out the donut king Byron Pringle and either Equanimeous St. Brown or David Moore as their top receiving talents. Jones has draft capital and a possible high snap scenario as the pluses in his corner, but the rest of the equation is scary.

Positives - Great Kick/Punt Returner, Very fast, Plays more physical than his size would indicate, Solid Hands
Negatives - Route Running needs work, Older prospect (25 already), Hasn't used his speed to his advantage effectively enough
