I was asked if I had a breakdown of all the sacks that Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones had last season at Georgia and while I have seen them all before, I went back and pulled them and made animated gifs out of them for you.
While I didn\’t get real thorough in my annotations of each, I have included what to look for on each of them and the approximate time from snap to sack.
You will notice that a few of the 14 sacks that Jones was credited with last year were awarded him due to intentional grounding by the quarterback. A few more include him chasing down the quarterback outside of the pocket and the remainder mostly include him rushing from the outside either unblocked or around the outside of the tackle on the edge.
One of the things that sticks out the most in all of these clips is just how athletic Jones really is. On the flip side, however, he is merely a speed rusher, and you will notice that none of these sacks are a result of him bull rushing or manhandling a tackle. This is one of the things that he will have to add to his repertoire at the next level as he just simply won\’t be able to beat every single tackle to the edge the way that he did in college.
Feel free to add your own observations below and make sure you give the page enough time to load all 14 animated gifs.
If you want to see the video of each play, simply click on the picture, and it should take to the actual play in a Youtube video.
ETA: If you are having problems with this many gifs on one page you can view each in a new tab by right clicking on each.
