We have all witnessed the poor interior line play of the Bengals over the last few years. Where it has been Eric Guichic or Kyle Cook, whether it has been Nate Livings or even Bobbie Williams. The interior of the line has been bad. Travelle Wharton was brought in to sure up the LG position, but  a knee injury has sidelined him for the season. Kevin Zeitler was drafted in this past draft and is expected to be the starting RG for the foreseeable future. Barrett Jones may not be a need depending on how Clint Boling plays this season.

 

Barrett Jones is one of the few offensive linemen in the country who can play all three positions on the line. He will be ready to play whatever position the team that drafts him wants him to play as a rookie. He has started for Alabama since his Freshman season. He played his first 2 seasons at OG, then last year played LT and played it very well. This year Alabama has decided to move him to play C. Alabama coach Nick Saban has only compared him to the all time great Bruce Matthews.

Height: 6’5

Weight: 304
