14. Josh Jones OT, Houston
Staying to play for his hometown team in Houston is probably going to end up costing Jones money on draft day.
His film is so good that it borders on boring because he wins so frequently, especially when Houston elected to get him in space. That athleticism is why he is so high on this list despite never playing right tackle in college.
With Ezra Cleveland, I noted how his 40 starts were impressive and similarly, Jones has started 45 games including 9 games as a true freshman.
Despite all of those starts he seems more “savvy” than refined, meaning that a good offensive line coach should be able to get even more out of him at the next level. For most teams that would be a huge plus, but the Titans are stuck with one of the worst offensive line coaches in the NFL in Keith Carter so it doesn’t help that much.
Jon Robinson loves guys with a long history of starting and who worked their way up from no/few offers to prominence in college and Josh Jones fills that role. I don’t know if he would start from Day 1 for the Titans but with Dennis Kelly in place, I’m not sure that is a necessity for any offensive tackle.
