Early Career

Jones played middle linebacker for Jesuit High School in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he started three seasons. He contributed to Jesuit reaching the LHSAA Class 5A quarterfinals, where the Blue Jays were defeated by Carencro, with 179 tackles, eight sacks, and three interceptions as a senior.

Deion Jones was rated as a three-star recruit and the class of 2012’s No. 31 outside linebacker prospect by Rivals.com. Jones, a Corey Raymond recruit, flipped his pledge to Louisiana State after receiving a late offer in December 2011 and abandoned his August 2011 commitment to Nebraska.

Jones played in 39 games with one start during his first three years at LSU as a backup for head coach Les Miles. In 2012, as a freshman, he made a total of 23 tackles (three tackles-for-loss). In 2013, as a sophomore, he made a total of 15 tackles (one tackle-for-loss). He made 26 total tackles as a junior in 2014, including 3.5 tackles for loss. He also made one pass defence and one fumble recovery. He made his debut as a starter in 2015 as a senior. He had 100 total stops (13.5 tackles-for-loss), five sacks, two interceptions, one pick-six, three passes defended, and one forced fumble in his final collegiate season. He was a Butkus Award finalist.

Professional Career

It was revealed on December 8, 2015, that Deion Jones had accepted his invitation to compete in the 2016 Senior Bowl. Jones participated in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on January 30, 2016, and his six combined tackles helped Gus Bradley’s South squad, led by the Jacksonville Jaguars, defeat the North 27-16. Despite only being able to play 26 snaps, he managed to perform well enough all week to win over coaches and scouts. There were 34 collegiate linebackers that attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana, including Jones. Jones participated in most of the events but skipped the bench press, short shuttle, and three-cone drill. In the 40-yard dash, Jones placed fourth among all competing linebackers. He also placed ninth in the vertical jump and tenth in the broad jump.

Jones went to LSU’s pro day on March 14, 2016, and he decided to participate in positional drills and all of the combine activities, but he chose to stand on his broad jump test. He completed the three-cone drill, the bench press (16 repetitions), the vertical jump (3512″), the short shuttle (4.26s), and the 40-yard sprint (4.39s) all in one go (7.12s). His performance in the positional drills and combine activities was great overall, and his 40-yard dash time of 4.39 seconds would have placed him #1 among all linebackers at the NFL combine. His time in the 40 was changed to an official time of 4.40s, which significantly raised his profile and draught stock.

Gil Brandt, an NFL analyst, praised his “off the charts” pro day performance. Several teams, including the New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and San Francisco 49ers, invited him to private workouts and visits. Jones was predicted by NFL draught analysts and scouts to be selected in the second or third round at the completion of the pre-draft process. He was able to improve his draught standing with his performances during the draught, moving from a projected third or fourth round pick to a second round pick that was all but certain. He was rated the sixth best outside linebacker prospect by NFLDraftScout.com, the sixth best linebacker by NFL analyst Mike Mayock, and the ninth best linebacker by Sports Illustrated.

Atlanta Falcons – Deion Jones was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons with the 52nd overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was the first of two linebackers taken by the Falcons in 2016, along with fourth-round pick (115th overall) De’Vondre Campbell. He was the eighth linebacker selected in 2016. Jones also got to see his LSU teammate Jalen Collins again. Following Jeff Ulbrich’s evaluation of Jones at the combine, the Falcons selected him in the draught. With his speed and aptitude at pass coverage, Ulbrich and head coach Dan Quinn thought Jones was the perfect choice to play middle linebacker.

2020 – When Kirk Cousins threw a pass in Week 6’s 40-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, Jones intercepted it for the first time this year. In Week 7’s 23-22 loss to the Detroit Lions, Jones sacked Matthew Stafford for his first full season sack. Jones’ sixth career score came in Week 12’s 43-6 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders when he picked off a ball from Derek Carr and returned it 67 yards. Jones led the club in tackles in Week 15’s 31-27 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 10 and sacked Tom Brady once.

2021 – Deion Jones won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 7 after compiling 15 tackles, three tackles for loss, and a sack in a 30-28 victory over the Dolphins.

2022 – The Falcons dealt Jones and a seventh-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft to the Cleveland Browns on October 10, 2022, in exchange for a sixth-round pick.
