Former Ohio State QB Cardale Jones certainly did not have the best ending to what was initially a near-perfect college career. Jones started the first seven games for the Buckeyes during their post-national championship campaign last season, looking shaky from as early as the season opener at Virginia Tech, before eventually losing the job to his teammate J.T. Barrett.
However, his somewhat disappointing season certainly hasn’t crushed hopes of being drafted, and things are looking good for the NFL hopeful quarterback. His size and strength impresses many NFL teams that are searching for a backup that they can develop for future years, and this has landed him a chance to workout with two organizations that are heading in the right direction.
Cardale Jones will workout for both the Arizona Cardinals and Buffalo Bills leading up to the draft at the end of April.
Many analysts have Cardale going in the second round, of which the Bills hold the 49th pick. Arizona does not own a pick in the second round, their next pick being 92nd in the third round. Jones’ size and pocket presence have him looking like a nice fit in Arizona, as Bruce Arians has had tremendous success with a pocket passer that can take hits via Carson Palmer.
It will be interesting to see where he ends up, he certainly has the potential to be a successful NFL quarterback.
