Grading System
Levi Jones | OT | Arizona St. | Pacific-10 Conference
Selected by Cincinnati Bengals in round 1, pick 10 (10 overall)
Height Weight 40 Grade
6'5½ 304 5.24 4.13
Former walk-on that originally started on the defensive line. Moved into the starting rotation three-years ago at guard and has been an All-Conference selection the past two-years as a left tackle.

Big, athletic prospect with a bright future ahead of him. Fine pass blocking tackle that is quick Off the snap, blocks with forward lean and stays with his assignments. Immediately gets his hands into the opponent, stays square and easily anchors even against bigger opponents. Gets movement from his run blocks, fights and though he lacks the great footwork, adjusts well protecting the blind side. At times looks like an impenetrable force. Not light on his feet, does not chop block well and bends at the waist or overextends which hurts his balance. Only average footwork and looks uncoordinated at times. Has grown into the position and should easily be able to handle the responsibilities of a weak-side tackle at the next level. Mid First Round.
