  Draft Scout by Conference

  Will Jones' first start at Kansas State was filled with mixed emotions. On one hand, his big plays on special teams and defense led to two of K-State's four touchdowns against Arkansas State. But on the other, the Wildcats suffered a disappointing 35-31 loss in their Sept. 12 season opener. Jones also was flagged for pass interference on a play that helped set up a Red Wolves score. "It was exciting, but as a result, we've just got to get those," Jones, a redshirt freshman, said of the loss. "For myself and the team, emotions were flying in the first game and being excited to play, but at the end of the day we've got to execute business."

Coming off a bye week, the Wildcats will try to get back on track Saturday in their Big 12 opener at No. 3-ranked Oklahoma. Kickoff is at 11 a.m. at Memorial Stadium in Norman. For the most part, Jones took care of his business at nickel back against Arkansas State, picking off one pass and breaking up another. And his blocked punt on the game's first series led to a quick score and early lead for K-State. Perhaps Jones' biggest weapon is his raw speed. Thompson said it would come down to a footrace between Jones and wide receiver Joshua Youngblood for fastest player on the team. Jones, who gave his 40-yard dash time as 4.3 seconds - well, actually more like 4.39 - picked himself. "I'm going to have to take that," he said with a smile. "I'm the fastest." - Topeka Capital Journal
