    Wow. Barrett Jones showed a lot of emotion by pushing his QB, but I still want him to be a Cowboy too.

    Dallas needs a nasty streak on that Oline and I think Jones would bring it.

    He should have pile drived that pip squeak for showng him up like that. What a punk move by McCarron up by four touchdowns jumping up and down like a little kid who was just told he'll have to wait for his PS3.

    He admitted that he has torn ligaments in his foot and has lisfranc injury which will require surgery.

    Wonder if it will drop his stock?

    Yup, we haven't had that in a center for sometime. Stepnoski comes to mind.

    Well he definitely wont be able to work out for teams or anything like that. What could happen is guys who impress with workout #'s jump ahead of him because of the "what have you done for me lately" nature of the NFL. A good power/strength showing at the combine would do wonders for Jones, wonder if he will go to the combine for just that.

    So an injured player with potential in the second? Looks like he's on the Cowboys radar.

    Jones has always had foot and ankle injuries, every since his freshman year. That keeps me away from him in the first.

    Everyone needs to look at Louisville center Mario Benavides. This guy can do it all amd showed up a great game vs Florida.

    Benavides (6-4, 284) is strong for his size and has excellent technique; however, he said that he bulked up over 300 lbs in the past but couldn't play effectively and that his knees were killing him at that weight.

    I think Benavides is too small. He may end up being a pretty nice LG though. If he could just get bigger and stronger, he would be perfect IMO. Lost of talent, just limited by his size at this point.

    Everyone knew Jones was battling a sore foot, but the Rimington Award winner said after Alabama's 42-14 romp over Notre Dame in the Discover BCS National Championship that he played the game with torn ligaments in his left foot. Jones suffered the Lisfranc (midfoot) injury in the first quarter of the SEC championship game against Georgia on Dec. 1 and will undergo surgery on Wednesday. He'll likely be out for three to four months.

    Jones' foot might not have even been remotely close to 100 percent, but the coaches were probably going to have to tranquilize the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder in order to keep him from playing in or missing any part of Monday night's game.

    "They would have had to physically drag me off the field to keep me from playing in this game, and even then, I don't know if that would have worked," Jones said.

    That is 100% my kind of player.

    I hope that him needing foot surgery is enough to push him down to 47.

    Too small? He is 300 pounds and can get stronger. He handled Slyvester Williams and Sheriff Floyd just fine. Also had a great game vs UNC.

    If I'm not mistaken, the recovery time following surgery for a Lis Franc injury is pretty lengthy. If he requires surgery, he may very well miss the senior bowl, combine, etc. Last year the top rated center (Peter Konz) didn't go until the late second and he was 100% healthy. I wouldn't be surprised to see this drop Jones into the 3rd rd or even early 4th.
