Alabama's Wizard of the Offensive Line

Alabama's Wizard of the Offensive Line

 

The most versatile offensive lineman in Crimson Tide history, Barrrett Jones has started 48 games during his standout career: 25 at right guard, 10 at left tackle and 13 at center. Over that stretch, a Tide tailback has rushed for 100-plus yards on 24 different occasions.

A three-time All-America who won the Outland Trophy at left tackle in 2011 and the Rimington Trophy at center this season, Jones is a perfectionist. According to the Alabama coaching staff, he missed only six blocking assignments in 606 snaps in 2012. In the SEC title game, despite suffering that left foot injury in the first quarter, Jones neutralized Georgia's 6-3, 358-pound nose guard John Jenkins in the second half; Alabama rushed for 183 yards over the final 30 minutes to secure a spot in Miami.
