Every year the NFL Draft has stories upon stories, but Cardale Jones’ is one for the ages.  The former third string quarterback became the starter in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game and cjonescontinued that momentum into a three game winning streak that won Ohio State a national championship.  He got handed the starting nod in 2015 only to lose the job in a blow out against Penn State.  So now Jones enters the 2016 NFL Draft full of questions: I reviewed his 2014 games against Michigan and Wisconsin, then his 2015 contests versus Virginia Tech, Penn State, and Maryland to get a better idea of the skills and abilities the young man will bring to the next level.  These are my thoughts:

There are hundreds of stories being told about the 2016 NFL Draft class.  One the most interesting transformations is about an athletic quarterback into a receiver.  Hines Ward was the mostbmiller successful transition so far (yes he played some quarterback and running back for Georgia), while former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson failed moving to a hybrid running back/receiver role.  Like Ward, Miller changed positions with at least collegian season to work on his craft.  To get a better idea of what skills and attributes the play maker is bringing to the NFL, I reviewed his games against Michigan, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, and his Senior Bowl game and practices.  Here is what I saw:
