Jet Jones played at San Jose St. from 2010 to 2013, A four year starter for the Spartans, he saw his receiving yards and touchdowns increase every year. His best year came in 2013 when Jet caught 79 passes for 1356 yards and 15 TDs as QB David Fales favorite target. His final college numbers included 248 receptions for 3087 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Jet was signed by the Browns after the 2013 draft. While he posted an eye popping 4.34 40, his size (5’8″, 185) really worked against him, and Jones had no special teams experience. After being waived, he’d sign with the Colts in 2014 and be on and off the practice squad throughout different points of the season. At the end of the year, he was signed by Tampa Bay and promoted to the active roster in 2015.

Zack Hodges hopefully will become a real nice rags to riches story. His parents both passed away before his 16th birthday and he battled with bouts of homelessness, but he came through it all to play at Harvard and became a two-time Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, totaling 26 sacks and 41 tackles for loss over his career at the school. A rangy defensive end, Hodges lined up all over the Harvard defensive alignment. Certainly fitting the mark as a tweener, he could play defensive end, outside linebacker, or even inside with a bit of bulk.
Zach was signed as a free agent by the Indianapolis Colts after the 2015 NFL draft, and then later on the Los Angeles Rams. Currently he is a member of the Los Angeles Chargers.
