Power-5 Starter

Reminds Us Of

Tyler Biadasz Dallas Cowboys

Plays both sides of the ball in high school. Really could have been recruited as a Division I defensive lineman as well. Used as a big blocking tight end on offense but will move inside to college with center as his most likely landing spot. Wrestler who combines strength and understanding of leverage. Is a mauler in the run game. Will have to get more pass pro reps and learn the finer points there, but has the tools to excel there once he gains the experience. Between all of that and his intangibles and approach to the game, we see him as a safe bet to be a college starter, leader of an offensive line and potential Sunday player after that.

Comp wise, Biadasz was also a high school defensive lineman who transitioned to center in college and became an All Big Ten guy. We can see the same happening with Jones.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also wrestles. Two-way player on both lines of scrimmage.
