Urban Meyer predicts Cardale Jones will have strong combine

Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends take center stage at Lucas Oil Stadium today as Day 2 of on-field workouts at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine takes place.

One player that scouts will be keeping a close eye on is Ohio State Buckeyes standout Cardale Jones.

Before Jones stepped out onto the field, his former coach, Urban Meyer, stopped by the NFL Network booth to share his thoughts on the 14 former Buckeyes in Indianapolis.

When the discussion turned to Jones, Meyer had nothing but praise for the quarterback.

Meyer believes Jones is going to put on a show that will improve his draft stock.

Considering Jones already put up amazing numbers for the vertical jump, it’s safe to say that he’s off to a good start showing off his athleticism.
