Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones will appear on an episode of ESPN analyst Jon Gruden’s “QB Camp,” according to a tweet from ESPN.

This should be one of the more entertaining episodes of Gruden’s show, which has featured the likes of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel in the past. This draft’s quarterback class is moderately deep, meaning that it will be interesting to see what Jones brings to the table during his time with the former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach.
It’s also worth noting that Jones is one of the most intriguing and polarizing names in the 2016 NFL Draft. He stepped up late in 2014 after teammate J.T. Barrett went down with a broken ankle and almost single-handedly led the No. 4 Buckeyes to wins over Alabama and Oregon en route to a national championship, and he does have solid dual threat abilities for someone 6-foot-5, 250 pounds.
But it’s also important for everyone to know that Jones was benched midway through last season due to inconsistency and his attitude is something of a question mark. He has the skillset, but consistency, composure and conditioning could prevent him from making a big mark in the NFL.
