Biography

 
PRO: Seeking a big, physical and versatile defensive lineman, the Titans selected Penn State’s DaQuan Jones in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.  The 6-foot-4-inch, 322-pounder played as a reserve as a rookie but earned a full-time role as a 3-4 defensive end in his second and third seasons, starting all 32 games during that period.  Jones offers an impressive combination of size, athleticism, intelligence and power.  He was a leader at State College, as one of the senior players to stay with the program during a time of turmoil.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2016, Jones joined Brian Orakpo as the only two Titans to start every game from 2015–2016.
•    Against Houston in the 2016 season finale (1/1/17), recovered a Tom Savage fumble in the end zone for his first career touchdown.  
•    In 2015, Jones was one of four members of the team to start all 16 games, holding down a spot at defensive end for the duration of the campaign.  He totaled 67 tackles, 15 quarterback pressures, two tackles for loss and a fumble recovery.  
•    As a rookie in 2014, Jones played in seven games with one start.  He posted his first career sack against Indianapolis on Dec. 28.
•    As a senior at Penn State, Jones was named first-team All-Big Ten Conference after finishing fifth on the team with a career-high 56 tackles and a career-best three sacks.
•    Jones was named Penn State’s Outstanding Senior Player and the recipient of the team’s Reid-Robinson Award.  

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Jones majored in criminal justice at Penn State and spent a portion of his 2013 summer as an intern observing the Spring Township Police Department near State College.
•    Jones entered the Penn State program after being rated the second-best offensive lineman in the nation during his playing days at Johnson City High School.  He switched to the other side of the ball and made an immediate impact as a true freshman.
•    Jones lists his father, Steve, as the most inspirational person in his life.  Steve raised DaQuan as a single father and one of his father’s greatest traits is that he works extremely hard in everything he does.  Steve works as an executive chef at Cornell University.
•    Jones is in the process of launching his own non-profit organization called “Create Your Legacy.”

CAREER TRANSACTIONS:  
•    The Johnson City, N.Y., native was selected by the Titans in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

COLLEGE:
•    Started 23 of 46 games at Penn State, with all of his starting assignments coming during the last two seasons.  Jones finished his career with 92 tackles, adding 4.5 sacks for minus 28 yards, 15.5 stops for losses totaling  55 yards, two fumble recoveries and a pass deflection.
•    As a senior (2013), was first-team All-Big Ten Conference by the league’s coaches and second-team All-Conference by the media and BTN.com.  Was named Penn State’s Outstanding Senior Player and the recipient of the team’s Reid-Robinson Award.  Also named to the Outland Trophy Watch List.  Named Most Valuable Player by his teammates after the season. Started all 12 games at defensive tackle, finishing fifth on the team with a career-high 56 tackles (33 solos).  His tackle total was the most for any interior defensive lineman in the Big Ten during the 2013 campaign. Added three sacks for minus 21 yards and led the Nittany Lions with 11.5
stops for losses of 42 yards and also recovered one fumble.
•    As a junior (2012), secured a starting role during training camp and started the first 11 games at defensive tackle.  Recorded 22 tackles, with an assisted sack, two stops for losses of six yards, a fumble recovery and a pass deflection.  Played an instrumental role for a defense that ranked second in the Big Ten Conference and 16th nationally in scoring defense at 19.1 points per game, as the Nittany Lions held six teams to 17 or fewer points.
•    As a sophomore (2011), was a top reserve at defensive tackle and played in all 13 games, recording eight tackles.
•    As a freshman (2010), held out of the initial four games for a possible redshirt season, but his play in practice and potential got him on the field.  Made his debut in the Big Ten-opener at Iowa and played in the final nine games.  Was one of seven true freshmen to play, registering six tackles, including a sack and two tackles for loss.
•    Majored in criminal justice at Penn State.
