Jones, who was named a first team Associated Press All-American after leading I-AA with 12 quarterback sacks in 2006, is now playing outside linebacker for the Ravens. During his four-year Southeast career, he made 109 tackles, including 73 solo stops and 16 sacks. He made 24 tackles for losses of 126 yards. He also blocked a punt, recovered and returned it 26 yards to the one-yard line in 2005.

Hunt, Jones' counterpart at defensive end the last two seasons at Southeast, signed with the Eagles as a tight end, the position he played at Mesa Community College for two years. Over his two seasons in a Redhawks uniform, Hunt made 58 tackles, including 35 solo stops and five sacks. He made 16 tackles for losses of 52 yards and added an interception at Tennessee Tech in the 2005 season finale.

Three other former Southeast players played in preseason contests over the weekend. Eugene Amano started at right guard for the Tennessee Titans as they played host to the Washington Redskins. Dan Connolly saw time at guard for the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Miami Dolphins. Dimitri Patterson finished second on the team with five tackles and one pass broken up for the Kansas City Chiefs defense in their game at the Cleveland Browns.
