2023 NFL Draft Focus: Broderick Jones

67

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the 2023 NFL Draft Focus. In this series, we will look at the incoming prospects hoping their names will be heard on draft night. Be sure to check often as we will produce content until the event’s start.

BACKGROUND

Broderick Jones is an offensive tackle prospect out of Georgia. Early on, he was known as a potential pro prospect as he got offers as early as ninth grade from elite colleges. As a senior, he was selected to the Under Armour All-American Game. Rivals listed him as a five-star recruit and he chose to play for the Georgia Bulldogs.

COLLEGE CAREER

As a freshman, Broderick redshirted for Georgia with all the depth they had at offensive line. In his second season, he started four games. His production from this stint was able to net him on the 2021 SEC All-Freshman Team.

2022-2023 COLLEGE CAREER

Broderick Jones was one of the elite tackles in this game and it has boosted his draft stock after an incredible season. In 13 games, he only allowed just one QB hit and allowed no sacks. This performance awarded him the 2022 Associated Press All-SEC First-Team Selection.

STRENGTHS: Explosiveness

Broderick’s explosiveness is something else as he is one of the most physically-gifted players in the draft. This is seen especially in his run-blocking where he can dominate his matchup. His hand grip strength is special which is why he only allowed one QB hit and no sacks in his last season in Georgia. He’s at his best in the run game, but he can be as special in the pass game.

WEAKNESSES: Not As Polished

His stances on offense aren’t polished and it’s mostly because of his feet. He sometimes forgets to move his feet and it causes unbalance. The reliance on his length can be seen especially against tougher opponents. The lack of appearances could be a reason why as he only started in 22 games in college.

PLAYER COMPARISON: D.J. Humphries

TEAMS WHO COULD DRAFT HIM

One of the top offensive linemen in this draft, Broderick Jones is expected to be drafted in the middle of the first round. Teams like the Titans, Jets, or Green Bay would love to have him in order to shore up their offensive line and protect their young or new quarterback.
