2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ben Jones, C, Georgia

Jones has teamed up with left guard Cordy Glenn to anchor what has been a solid Georgia offensive line this season. The Bulldogs are second in the SEC in passing, fourth in rushing, and third in total offense in the conference. They have won 10 games in a row and reached the SEC Championship against LSU. The offense could have been even better, but star freshman Isaiah Crowell missed significant playing time. Still, it did not matter who was in the backfield because Jones and the O-line were rock-solid from start to finish during the regular season.

Jones is one of the most experienced players in college football. He started 10 games at center as a freshman, started 12 of 13 games as a sophomore, and has started every game ever since. The Centreville, AL native has good size at 6'3'' and 316 pounds. He generally runs in the 5.2s in the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 5.14 from that distance. Glenn is not flashy, but he has sound fundamentals and will be a solid addition to the middle of any offensive line at the next level.
