Seahawks select Jamarco Jones with their final fifth round pick

NCAA Football: Army at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

With the 168th pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks have selected offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, out of Ohio State.

They are giving new offensive line coach Mike Solari some fresh clay to mold.

Although Jones was a four-star recruit and top 100 prospect nationally, he was coming off a shoulder injury that cost him half of his senior year and needed to mature physically and mentally before knowing what it took to be a great player. For two years, he learned behind Taylor Decker, an eventual first-round pick for Detroit. Jones played in 10 games as a true freshman for the national champions, and then in all 13 games as the team’s sixth lineman the following year. Once Decker departed, Jones proved he was ready to go, taking advantage of his length and quick feet to garner second-team All-Big Ten honors as the starting left tackle for every game. He garnered first-team all-conference honors as a senior, starting all 14 games at left tackle for the Big Ten Champion Buckeyes.
