    Barrett Jones is projected as an interior offensive lineman at the next level. Those types rarely rate as a first rounder. Almost all of your first round offensive lineman are tackles.

    I can dig most of this, but no true position? What does that even mean? The guy has played very well at three different positions in the best conference in the country. It's not like he's a tweener LB/DE that you could say doesn't have a true position. I guess versatility is a knock these days for an offensive lineman?

    He won't last past the 2nd round, but a first-round selection certainly wouldn't surprise me.

    As soon as we are all saying rightfully that as an interior lineman, it shouldn't be surprising that he would fall to the 2nd or 3rd rounds, Chance Warmack is consistently seen as a first rounder. Granted, I've seen some say Warmack is the best OG prospect in a decade.

    Re: Barrett Jones is not a 1st rounder?

    a rating of second or third round is good for a Guard/Center, the value just isnt super high on those positions like they are for tackles. Even the first center taken rarely goes in the first round. Take comfort in knowing that the first Guard to go will be Chance and he will go in the first.

    Would love Barrett going to the Pack. No matter where he gets drafted or who he gets drafted by Barrett will have a long successful career and would not be surprised to see him make Pro Bowls.

    Re: Barrett Jones is not a 1st rounder?

    I think his versatility at different positions almost make him a first round lock. With NFL roster limitations an O-lineman who can play three different positions will be a hot commodity. Plus, his leadership skills and character are going to push him up as well.
    I like Kiper but I think he's going to miss this one.

    Still way too early to assess that with participation in the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine, and Pro Days yet to happen.

    There ya go Sip. Most NFL Olinemen are limited to one position and even one side. He saves at least one roster spot and possibly two out of 53.
    i.e. Warmack will never play RG in the NFL.
