Jones had a great season for a freshman offensive lineman: he redshirted.
Just a few seasons ago, Michigan had a dearth of offensive tackles, and any halfway decent lineman was in danger of having to play early. Now they seemingly have a plethora. Is Jones one of them? We’ll see. He plays like an offensive tackle, but he’s a little on the short side at 6’4″.
The 2020 season should be another developmental one for Jones. Michigan’s two tackles are pretty set in Jalen Mayfield and Ryan Hayes, and there are a few seasoned backups, such as Andrew Stueber (who could start at guard) and Joel Honigford. I have heard more practice hype about Jones’s classmate Trevor Keegan, who came in with a little more college-ready body. So Jones is probably on the outside looking in for now.
Prediction: Backup offensive tackle
