Draft Scout Ben Jones News
01/15/13 - RG Ben Jones had been dominated by defensive tackle Vince Wilfork in the Patriots' 42-14 regular-season win. Jones - and the other linemen - were more prepared for Wilfork this time. He was in on five tackles but never got close to quarterback Matt Schaub. Jones and center Chris Myers did a solid job on Wilfork.
01/09/13 - RG Ben Jones was voted as the team's rookie of the year. Jones, a fourth-round pick, played center at Georgia but moved to guard this season. He was mauled by defensive tackle Vince Wilfork in the loss to New England in regular season. He rotates with 340-pound Brandon Brooks. Brooks is a mauler, too, but Jones uses quickness and leverage to do what he wants.
01/08/13 - RG Ben Jones, a rookie, was overwhelmed by Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork in the first game. Jones, 300, should be better prepared to handle the 350-pound Wilfork, who's having an excellent season. Obviously, Jones will need help from center Chris Myers or right tackle Derek Newton.
11/28/12 - RG Ben Jones, a fourth-round pick, has earned a starting position. Drafted to back up starter Chris Myers at center, Jones had to learn right guard after starter Antoine Caldwell was injured early in the season. Jones picked up the new position so well he became part of a rotation when Caldwell was healthy. Eventually, Jones played better and was issued the starting job. He still rotates every third season with Caldwell.
11/15/12 - RG Ben Jones, a fourth-round pick selected as a center, has earned the starting job over veteran Antoine Caldwell. Jones is playing guard for the first time. Because center Chris Myers has never missed a game, the coaches wanted to get Jones on the field, so they moved him in camp when Caldwell was injured. As the season progressed and Caldwell suffered more nagging injuries, Jones got more playing time and took advantage of it. The coaches like him because he's talented and eager to learn.
