What do you guys think about letting Bushrod walk and giving Jones a shot?
If we were to let marcel Jones start then you be prepared to give daniels more play time as well, because Brees will end up in a wheel chair.
Late round draft picks being put on the IR their rookie year is Loomis' method of keeping them from being grabbed from the practice squad.
Toon, Tiller, Jones and White were all IR this year, none were placed on PS. So they're not so much being injury prone as much as being protected for the future.
Jones' time at Nebraska was marred by injuries and he has serious durability concerns moving forward. He has the frame to draw interest but injury history and the bad weight he carries, with average strength, he's maintaining a draftable grade only because of his adequate feet and strength to go with his length.
Marcel Jones is the backup RT. He can't play LT because he doesn't have the foot speed. Charles Brown has the ability to be a pro bowl LT, but he is inconsistent, unproven, and too injury prone to count on him yet.
