Offensive Lineman - 6’7, 349 lbs. - Temecula, California - Sophomore
Filling in the fifth and final spot in the Oregon Ducks’ projected 2020 starting offensive line, Steven Jones will be anchoring the right side at the tackle position. Jones is one of four players replacing a cast of veteran offensive lineman, Penei Sewell is the only returning starter from 2019’s rosters. Jones will have an opportunity to prove his worth protecting the edge opposite the best O-lineman in the country.
Went the route of the redshirt as a sophomore. Jones played 63 snaps in four games at left tackle and right guard. With the redshirt season, Jones will likely be locking down the edge for the foreseeable future.
Made his first and only career start against Utah Week 10 at left tackle. Jones appeared in five games as a freshman playing all 107 snaps at left tackle. Pro Football focus graded Jones out at 79.2 for the season.
Consensus four-star recruit by ESPN, Rivals and 247Sports, Jones was a Top 300 recruit. The California native signed during the early signing period, and graded out at .9100. Head coach Mario Cristobal personally recruited Jones out of Chaparall High School where he led an offense that averaged 205.7 rushing yards per game. Jones is Cristobal’s kind of player: a big and athletic mauler that excels as a run-blocker. The Ducks landed the offensive tackle over Louisville, TCU, Utah and multiple other Pac-12 programs.
