He could be very good at all spots except LT, where I don't think his athleticism will translate, but he's extremely bright. I think he'd be good at C, but he could be a valuable guard. He's not the most athletic guy, but he succeeds to the max without that.

Average athlete. Pudgy frame. Not explosive. Not overly strong. Not firm on first contact. He's not too quick. He won't be playing left tackle in the NFl and he'd be a pretty average RT. He's too tall and not stout enough to play center in the NFL. He's a guard and he doesn't project to be a special guard. He's smart, durable, versatile, experienced and he's a technician. Remember Clint Boling? That's his ceiling IMO, a utility lineman who ends up starting on the inside. I think he ends up going third round at the earliest, he's way overhyped at the moment. He'll drop off in the all-star games, at the combine, when the scouts (not the college analysts) start driving the draft coverage and when he leaves Alabama and gets exposed a little more.

I think he has underrated athleticism. He's also a great technician and really versatile. I think there's a chance he can be a LT in the NFL, and a pretty good one.

That's pretty harsh.

He's going to be a very good G. He has avg athleticism but he's a very smart OL. A team like the pats will draft him and play him at G for 10 years.

He is very good at everything. He could play all 5 positions. However, I think he would only be average at the tackle spot. He does have multiple All-Pro ability inside though

Pros…

As pro ready as any prospect in the country
Prototype size
Very smart on & off the field
Extremely versatile
Great technician
Leadership
Durable & Tough

Con…

Average physical traits
Versatile but no future at LT
Won’t blow pro Dlinemen off the LOS like teammate Chance Warmack will.

I would tend to agree. I think Jones is a plug-and-play guard at the NFL level. His versatility is a big plus and while he might not be the type of player you want to pencil in at tackle, I think his real value would be his ability to slide outside in the event of an injury to a starting tackle. Having a player that could be used at multiple positions along the offensive line definitely helps in that you don't need as many depth players that are specifically swing guards or swing tackles.

Boling isn't a bad comparison, although I think he's better in run blocking.

I would use a 2nd on him in a heartbeat...

This has to be a joke. Barrett Jones is a sure fire 1st round pick, and is going to be the best OG/C to come out for the draft in sometime. yes, that means he is better than the almighty David DeCastro. I would suggest that his best position would be Center so he can utilize his intelligence and be in the middle to make line calls. This guy is going to be something special. He is the top player on a line full of future pro bowlers. DJ Fluker might be a better mauler but Jones will have the better career.

Sorry, but the best Guard prospect to come out in a long, long time is his teammate Chance Warmack. I like him better then DeCastro, and I was a huge fan of DeCastro.

I don't even think Decastro was that great of a prospect. I personally liked Iupati coming out more than I did Decastro. I 100% disagree with you thinking Warmack is the better prospect. Jones will transition better into the NFL. Also Warmack isnt even the 2nd best guard prospect for his team.

1. Barrett Jones
2. DJ Fluker
3. Chance Warmack

I love Barrett, and I think Warmack is overrated by some right now, but no way Fluker is better than Chance. I feel Fluker is supremely overrated because of his team and teammates.

Want to bet? I'll bet he's a third round pick at best.
