At Southern Utah, Braxton Jones has started on the offensive line for the past three seasons. He has played 29 games at left tackle, versus one game at right tackle. Additionally, he earned All-Conference and All-American recognition twice. While he has only played one career game against a Power-5 opponent, Jones has some big upside coming out of FCS Southern Utah.

On day two of the NFL Draft, the Bears added CB Kyler Gordon, S Jaquan Brisker, and WR/KR/PR Velus Jones Jr. On day three, they have now added Braxton Jones with multiple picks remaining in the final rounds of the draft.

I like spreadsheets and football. I aim to take an analytical approach to my football research while also realizing the physical nature of football and how that impacts the numbers. While my main focus is Chicago Bears, I also write about the NFL as a whole.
