    Dre'Mont Jones

    I'm surprised that pick wasn't an ILB but watching highlights from this man the 1st thing I noticed was how much he plays inside on the line. He is listed as a DE but plays more DT. I hope this guy is the inside pressure presence we've been missing!!!

    This pretty much puts the final nail in DeMarcus Walker. Still a slight chance he hits camp, and the light just clicks on. Jones should be interesting, I think we will get some limited positive snaps this year, and next season he will start to blossom. He needs physical work, and technique refinement. Very good tools, and he has already begun the journey of having a pass rushing plan. I would have liked an every down contributor here, but I'm OK with a high impact play guy.

    I'd hate to see that because he seemed to make an impact when he was allowed to actually play. As of right now I still blame VJ but if Fangio doesn't play him I'll accept that he's done.

    I will agree we wasted his rookie year. However, after that something just isn't clicking somewhere. I will say though, that Kollar was his position coach, if I trusted any coach from last year's squad it was Kollar. If Kollar didn't think he could do it, then I believe him.

    Jones is an extremely athletic one-gapping three-technique with the ability to play a disruptive brand of football on all three downs. His potential has never been in doubt, but in 2018 the production finally matched the talent. His body type and playing style will open him up to more feast-or-famine snaps than some of the other defensive tackles in this draft, but in the right scheme, he can become part of a swarm unit that plays on the other side of the ball.

    NFL.com scouting report


    Pro Football Focus has come out with another telling stat when it relates to graduating Ohio State defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones. We all know he’s a sure fire NFL draft pick, and one of the best interior lineman in the draft, but the separation between him and the rest of the Big Ten is larger than anyone thought.

    According to a Tweet shared by @PFF_College, Jones almost doubled up the next closes defensive lineman in the Big Ten with quarterback pressures. It’s an unofficial stat, but 59 hurries is an astronomical number. The next best number is Jordan Thompson of Northwestern with 29.

    Someone in the NFL is going to be grinning like a Cheshire Cat to get their hands on that much production at the next level.

    Like M-Jax, when all the attention is geared towards the edge... all he needs to do is win 1-on-1 matchups.

    Jones' quickness will be difficult for an inside O-Lineman to handle.

    Watching Dre’Mont Jones’ tape and athletic profile, he reminds a lot of the same reasons why Elway drafted Derek Wolfe back in 2012.

    I could see Jones being Wolfe’s replacement next season.

    Or now, if we cut him to pay Harris. Maybe Elway knew they could only keep 1 and wanted to see how draft played out?

    Here is a lofty comparison for Jones:

    NFL comparison: Kawaan Short

    This one may seem strange, because Short today is one of the more prototypical one-gapping defensive tackles in football, with a compact frame, and Jones looks more like a defensive end who lived on the inside in college. But their styles are nearly identical. Both Short and Jones can win simply with their lightning-quick first steps but are masters with their hands when attacking upfield. Short, who weighed nearly 20 pounds more as a prospect than Jones did at the combine, was more stout against the run. Their strengths are the same.

    TFL has always been a key stat for me on DTs. You want your DT making the play on the other side of the ball and that is something Jones does often. OSU fan here and only Buckeye I really wanted us to draft. Think he is going to free up the edges and eliminate the ability for QBs to step up when that outside pressure comes. He will make our pass rush much more effective.

    Have heard fans say he is just a situational guy (true for most DTs anyways), but those "situations" are highly important as they are the ones that get your defense off the field.

    Even if a guy starts as situational who knows where his career will go.
