He would definitely start from day 1 and be an immediate improvement for us, maybe not pro bowl level but good enough.
I had Barrett Jones penciled in before the season to us but watching him play OC merely convinced me he isn't an OC.
Jones really struggled in some games and showed VERY limited movement skills.
He looks to me a lot like Nate Livings minus experience. Solid in a phone booth but on the move it becomes a 50/50 proposition. He never had a chance to get double team blocks on the quicker DL he faced like Sheldon Richardson and the kid from TAMU(Not Moore).
This guy is a hot name amongst Cowboy fans but he is no where near a DeCastro type prospect.
Would love to get Jones in about Round 4 and teach him OG but he'll get snagged earlier based on his collegiate hardware.
