    Where do you think Barrett Jones played his best?

    In his years here where did you find him to be at his best? Also, where do you think he settles in she nfl?

    We sure are going to miss him in the years to come. Amazing to be able to watch an all time Alabama player.

    I think he was best at RG and that is his ideal NFL position. He could be a serviceable NFL center though.

    I think his natural position is center, but wouldn't be surprised to see him playing guard. One of the most intelligent young men we have come thru the program.

    He played real well at all the positions, but I think Guard will be where he ends up at the next level. I think that is the most natural fit for him.

    Guard. But he developed very well at Center this season.

    It depends on how good the center is on the team that drafts him. Even if he ends up at OG, I'll guarantee you that he'll be double-trained to take over at center in case of injury...

    normally,OG paid better, or C paid better? I assume the highest paid would be the OTs?

    You are correct about the Tackles, especially the LTs. LTs are sometimes the highest paid players behind the QB.

    Centers usually command a higher salary than Guards.

    Center. He is needed to command the troops.

    Re: Where do you think Barrett Jones played his best?

    I'll just say that NFL teams are going to love him and want him badly because he's proven he can basically play anywhere.
    That's a huge positive in a league with roster limitations.

    Re: Where do you think Barrett Jones played his best?

    i think he's played his best at every position that has been asked of him, and that's what makes him so good.

    Re: Where do you think Barrett Jones played his best?

    I think his value is his versatility. He is not an ideal Tackle, but serviceable in the event of injury to a starter. My guess is that a team with one great and one decent guard or a team with a decent center takes him in to be the starter and then rotates him into one of the other positions if there's an injury. If he's available early in the 2nd round, unless I'm an owner with an all-world O-Line, I'd take him in a heartbeat. Also, if I have a great LT or RT and same-side guard or center, I'd take him late first round if Warmack is off the board (or if my need is center).

    I think he honestly played his best at LT last year. I do think he'll be a Guard at the next level though.
