Ben Jones a curious pick for Texans

4/28/2012

A day after they took Miami (Ohio) guard Brandon Brooks in the third round, the Houston Texans followed up with an odd offensive line choice.

Georgia center Ben Jones is a good player, but he’s very much a center. And Houston just re-signed veteran Chris Myers to man the spot.

Perhaps Jones is a backup center who can be tried at guard.

But the Texans lost their right guard (Mike Brisiel as a free agent to Oakland) and right tackle Eric Winston (as a salary cap cut).

Center certainly didn’t appear to be a spot they needed to address.
