Final Thought: Cardale Jones has taken college football by storm and for good reason. Jones reminds me of Ben Roethlisberger because of his size, arm strength, and pocket awareness, yet also has a childlike nature in his personality I haven't seen from Roethlisberger. Jones has issues with his accuracy and reading defenses as all quarterbacks coming from the read-option offense have. Jones had a poor showing and was benched by Coach Urban Meyer. Jones regained the starting job a week later and remained the starter for the rest of the season before declaring for the NFL Draft. He is currently seen as a second to forth round prospect.
