Seahawks Pick Ohio State Offensive Tackle Jamarco Jones In Fifth Round Of 2018 NFL Draft

With their fourth pick in the fifth round, the Seahawks added offensive line help, taking Ohio State tackle Jamarco Jones with the 168th overall pick.

After playing behind eventual first-round pick Taylor Decker for two seasons, Jones took over the starting left tackle job as a junior and earned second-team All-Big 10 honors in 2016. Last season, the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Jones started all 14 games and earned first-team all-conference honors for the Big Ten champs.

Asked to describe his game, Jones said, “I feel like I’m pretty balanced. I feel like I handle myself pretty well out on the edge against pass rushers, and definitely love to mix it up on run plays. Third-and-short, fourth-and-short, those type of situations, I also love those.”
