Alex Khvatov:  Tell us about your senior season. 
Christian Jones:  It was a dream season.  We prepared for every game like we were playing a big time team.  We never really worried about who we played.  In the past, we did worry and that was the reason why we would slip up.  Even though we were blowing teams away, we were still playing like it was 0-0 on the scoreboard.   

Alex Khvatov:  You guys were down by four with 79 seconds left on the clock in the BCS Championship Game, how were you able to pull out the win in the final seconds?  
Christian Jones:  For one, the coaches never lost faith in us even after Auburn scored in the final minute.  We saw that in their demeanor.  We didn’t get down.  I can remember our defensive coordinator telling us that we will go down there and score.  He believed that we would win the National Championship.  We did it.  The coaches put their faith in us, and we put the faith in them. 
Alex Khvatov:  How would you summarize your experience of playing with freshman QB Jameis Winston? 
Christian Jones:  He is a great young player.  He has a lot of traits that you don’t see in younger guys.  You see him throw a pick, and most young guys will get down.  I have never seen him do that once.  He put all of his faith in his teammates.  He put faith in his receivers and the offensive line.  Those older guys did a good job responding to him.  Jameis is going to be big time in the future.
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths? 
Christian Jones:  I am a versatile player.  I can play a lot of different spots.  I can run and cover.  It helps our team out. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are you trying to show scouts during the Senior Bowl week?
Christian Jones:  Practice is a really big thing for these guys.  I want to show them that I am hard worker in practice.  I will go out there every day and try to get better.  That is all you could do this week.  I am not trying to overdue anything this week.  I just want to show them how much I love the game. 
Alex Khvatov:  Where are you currently training for the NFL Draft? 
Christian Jones:  I am training at Bommarito in Miami.  I had a DVD sent to me.  That place does a good job with recovery and how you should take care of your body.  All of these things are important.  I was amazed by all of the stuff that they had for us.  My body feels good.  I am ready to go.
Alex Khvatov:  What are your hobbies? 
Christian Jones:  I like to hang out with my friends.  We play some video games.  I like to watch Netflix a lot.  I have probably seen every show. 
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Christian Jones is….
Christian Jones:  Versatile and humble player.
