Barrett JonesOffensive tackle | Alabama
Jones has been one of the most talented and versatile offensive linemen around. After starting 25 games at right guard coming into the 2011 season, Jones played every other position on the line but that for the Crimson Tide this fall, but he really made his home at left tackle. Jones moved there at the beginning of the season and played lights out, starting nine games there while having to pull multiple duties along the line.
Jones was the anchor of an offensive line that helped Alabama's running game rank first in the SEC. Jones also stood out as one of Alabama's best leaders during the Tide's run to the championship game.
