2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Houston OT Josh Jones

PFN Chief Draft Analyst Tony Pauline's scouting report on 2020 NFL Draft prospect OT Josh Jones of Houston.

2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Josh Jones, OT, Houston

Career Snapshot
Four-year starter at left tackle who earned Second Team All-AAC honors as a senior in 2019. Missed two games with a knee injury as a sophomore.

Positives
College left tackle who is highly thought of in many areas of the scouting community. Terrific position blocker who keeps his feet moving and makes effective use of angles. Is strong, starts with good knee bend, and turns defenders from the line. Keeps his head on a swivel, plays with a nasty attitude and always looks for someone to hit. Big enough and wide enough to block down on opponents and take them from the action. Patient, stays square, and plays with a wide base.

Negatives
Bends at the waist and lacks balance in pass protection. Lacks quick, fluid footwork off the edge. Not effective in motion.

Analysis
Jones possesses good size and has flashed next-level ability and occasional dominance, but to me he has yet to pull the pieces together. Though he’s well-liked in some areas of the scouting community, I think he’s more of a small-area blocker who must really polish his technique to have any semblance of a future at the next level.
