Where will Cardale Jones be selected in the 2015 NFL Draft? According to ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper, Jones’ stock is “as volatile as it gets.”
As of now, Kiper has Jones as the No. 25 prospect in the upcoming draft class, but that could all change if Jones does not end up winning the starting job with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
“Jones has some great physical tools and a dream stretch of games to build on,” Kiper wrote.
“But he’s also not a guarantee to be a starter in 2015, and not starting would change everything, because those three games then become less of a dream stretch and more of ‘just three games.’ In a nutshell (no pun intended, Buckeyes), Jones needs polish, which means reps. So he belongs here if he wins the job. If not, we need to back off a bit on the draft expectations.”
It will be interesting to see whether Jones is able to win the starting job in 2015.
Jones is competing with Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett for the No. 1 spot on the roster leading up to the season. Regardless of who wins the job, the Buckeyes should be in good shape for the upcoming season.
