Barrett Jones - draft this dude!

Just watched a nice little piece on him on ESPN CGD.

I knew he was a stud but didn't realize the guy was basically a rocket scientist as well.

He can play any position on the OL. Music to my ears.

I know the consensus here is DL, CB, S, WR etc but I honestly think OL is the teams biggest need. Been saying that for almost a year now. He's starting at center tonight for Bama but he could play OT/OG in the NFL just as well.

This is supposed to be an OL heavy draft class, so maybe we could find better value in the later rounds, but this looks like a guy we could use on this team and would start immediately.

Honestly, I wouldn't object to the panthers using all their draft picks on linemen this year LOL.

EDIT: Having trouble posting links that provide info/bio/SR on him. He's around one of the highest rated OL on most draft boards so check it out. Also, check him out tonight anchoring the Alabama offensive line. Should get a good test from Te'o and the good Irish defense.

The consensus to most here I would believe(including myself) is the OL actually and he wouldn't be a bad option IMO

Saw the same piece. A star OL is always a smart pick. With the pressure on Ron to win, I doubt we would take one if there was a star skill player available.

Yeah, I'll admit that the OL issues have started to become more and more visible to even the most aloof huddle posters. Sure, OL isn't a "sexy" or "exciting" 1st round draft pick, but boring players help make exciting teams and seasons.

Allow me to sign my name on the "draft an offensive linemen first" petition. Wouldn't mind Jonathan Cooper from Carolina, either.

I'd love to get Jones in the 2nd. He's one of the only reasonable picks I wouldn't be mad about if we didn't take a WR in the 2nd.

I've looked at two mocks in the last 5 minutes on Walterfootball.com - and both of them have us taking DT Jonathan Hankins from Ohio State. Don't want this guy.

That'd make for a pretty good draft.
