Scouting Report: Tyler Jones is a very physical and imposing
force on the offensive line. Jones spent some time playing tackle
last fall, but will likely make the move to offensive guard once he
arrives on the college level.
Jones plays a bit high at times, but he does a very good job of
remaining engaged with his man until the running back has cleared
the hole. The talented Jones does a nice job of getting to the next
level once his back breaks containment. One of the most impressive
things about Jones is how quickly he gets out of his stance and into
his blocking assignments. - Scout.com Analyst Steve Robertson
