Req I think Jones would be starting at center by the time training camp is over. It would give us a guy that's strong enough to anchor the middle of the line against the big boys, and is athletic enough to get to the second level when needed. Nix is a future NFL starter. Jones dominated throughout the championship game with a torn ligament. Just another example of his ability.
There are some players who are highly decorated in college because they can dominate college level competition. Then there are the ones like Jones who are highly decorated because they are NFL caliber studs. Without the injury, the Broncos don't get him at 28. With it, Elway might be able to trade down to the upper 2nd and still get his guy.
