With a brass control cover like on alligator Would you still need to ground the tone and volume pots with jumper wires or would all pots being on the brass cover be enough?

IMHO it is better to use a ground buss rather than use the brass control plate. Yes a centralized ground for all is what is needed and the plate grounding would work. , but with a buss it will make it much neater and easier to work with. The brass plate is used as a shield and is tied to the grounding buss, same with the string ground.
