The rise of Broderick Jones is intriguing. While he was a five-star recruit out of high school, he didn’t play much as a freshman, seeing action in just two games.
Obviously when you play at Georgia, you’re going to have a ton of competition for snaps and Jones saw that early on. He eased into the program by year two and had a much larger impact, playing 11 games at left tackle and only allowing a couple of sacks and five quarterback hurries.
During his breakout junior season, however, he became one of the most trusty left tackles in college football. Stetson Bennett didn’t have to worry about a rush coming from his side of the ball as he doubled his snaps from the previous season and only gave up eight quarterback hurries and zero sacks. Yes, you read that correctly, no sacks.
The Patriots could use a ton of help along the offensive line and Jones is going to be available. It would be a wise choice here.
