Marcel Jones, OT, Nebraska

Nebraska Cornhuskers offensive tackle Marcel Jones is a tall prospect who could possibly develop into a left tackle after some development. In the immediate future, Jones would fit nicely on the right side. He lacks ideal strength and will need time to blossom into the position. That said, all the potential is there for him to become a starter-level player in the NFL.

Jones is a good run blocker. Given his great size and length, he can dominate at the point of attack even without great strength. When opening his stance off the snap, he struggles most against speed rushers. His girth helps him eat up bull rushes with a decent body lean. The problem comes in having to change direction and consistently get off the line with velocity.

Once coaches really start to work with him, they're going to want to tweak his footwork so he keeps his frame along his center of gravity. Jones has a tendency to lean rather than keep his feet under him. Since he's only ready to play right tackle, it's unlikely he is drafted in the first couple rounds.
