James Jones: Sure hands

James Jones gives the Raiders something they've been sorely lacking the last few years; a pair of sure hands. James' mitts is what gave him 14 TDs in 2013. While he doesn't quite have eye popping stats every single year, him being a reliable target immediately boosts the Oakland passing game to another dimension.

Pro Football focus just released their signature stat: drop rate, which measures every single receiver in the NFL and the number of catchable balls they dropped. James Jones comes in at #7 in the same category of reliable hands as Larry Fitzgerald, Marques Colston, Golden Tate, Alshon Jeffery, and Desean Jackson.

# Name Team Drops Catchable Drop Rate
1 Larry Fitzgerald ARZ 1 83 1.20
2 DeAndre Hopkins HST 1 53 1.89
3 Jeremy Kerley NYJ 1 44 2.27
4 Rishard Matthews MIA 1 42 2.38
4 Vincent Brown SD 1 42 2.38
6 Cole Beasley DAL 1 40 2.50
7 James Jones GB 2 61 3.28
8 Marques Colston NO 3 78 3.85
8 Doug Baldwin SEA 2 52 3.85
10 Andre Roberts ARZ 2 45 4.44
11 Golden Tate SEA 3 67 4.48
12 Austin Pettis SL 2 40 5.00
13 Alshon Jeffery CHI 5 94 5.32
14 Marvin Jones CIN 3 54 5.56
15 DeSean Jackson PHI 5 87 5.75

Its debatable that Jones gives the Silver and Black 1200yds and 12 TDs next season, but he will undoubtedly move the chains and be a security blanket for Schaub, McGloin, or whoever lines up at QB next season.
