Barrett Jones is an offensive lineman, in many more ways than one. As most know, he's started three BCS championship games at all positions along the offensive line. His latest start was at center. So, according to Jones, he's a center. 

He's also one of the toughest lineman you'll see. The former Alabama lineman graduated summa cum laude and suffered a serious foot injury in the first quarter of the SEC Championship game last year.

But he played the rest of the game.

He also went on to not only play but excel in the Crimson Tide's championship win over Notre Dame four weeks later. 

Jones has spent the draft season rehabbing after having surgery on his foot at IMG in Bradenton, Florida.

Check out the video above as Barrett Jones tells us in his own words what makes him tick. Let us know in the comments below if you think Jones will shine in the NFL.
