POSITIVES

—A two-year starter with experience in all four seasons at Ohio State.

—Incredible arm length (35 ⅛") that he uses well to keep pass-rushers off his body.

—Plug-and-play technique. He has excellent timing and awareness and is poised in pass protection with a well-timed punch.

—Excellent power to sit down and stop bull rushes.

—Slides well and can mirror against speed.

          

NEGATIVES

—Undersized for a tackle at 6'4" and 299 pounds.

—Did not test well at the combine and opted to not participate in the Senior Bowl.

—Hips look locked in the run game.

—Can be impatient and throws his hands too soon.

—Might be maxed out physically.

          

OVERALL

Jamarco Jones won't flash on tape as a great athlete, and he didn't dominate at the combine, but he's one of the draft's more solid blockers. Jones comes from a pro-ready blocking system, and he's spent the offseason working with Bentley to improve his technique even more. His length and technique will add up to make him a day one starter.

          

GRADE: 6.90 (Round 2)

PRO COMPARISON: Dion Dawkins, Buffalo Bills
