Jones and Frederick would be my first choices in the order I listed.We could pick Jones in the first round then OLB second round. Another option would be OLB in first round then Frederick or Holmes in the second. If we were unable to get these last two in the second round, in my opinion, there would be no other center worth drafting. It's early so another Center may surface during the season.
Before Holmes was injured he was blown up on a few plays in the first or second game. Gave up a sack, missed a block to free RB and he was stuffed,etc.
If it was me I would do everythingy to get Jones. He's not a mauler and he's not super athletic nor is he the strongest but he just gets the ijob done time and time again at any Oline position. He's would certainly give the Oline coach many options. Top of the RKG chain.
