Michigan State LB Greg Jones II has been working out with trainer Tom Shaw in Orlando to try and improve his game, reports Tom Kowalski, of Mlive.com. Jones said he has been working on dropping back into coverage and obtaining as many tips from NFL players there as possible. "I've been spending time on the pass, but I'm more comfortable against the run," Jones noted. "What I want to work on is dropping back in the pass." Jones opted to stay in school instead of coming out last year, and it may have been bittersweet for him. His Spartans went 11-2 and tied for the Big Ten championship, but his individual accomplishments were not as high as his previous year. He said he doesn't regret anything and he was able to become better against the pass and become a better tackler by staying in school for another year.
