Draft Forecast: Drugstore List’s Jerry Jones

The Draft Daze interview tour continued with The Drugstore List’s Jerry Jones, who’s not to be confused with the Dallas Cowboys owner. This Jerry Jones has been producing books on the draft’s prospects since 1972 and has been inside the legendary Paul Brown’s war room. As Dick Leabeu put it, “Jones was into the draft before it was cool to be into it.” Here’s what Jones thinks about this year’s prospects:

1. As many others have noted, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are at the top of the draft class.

2. The draft boasts a strong crop of offensive tackles, with headliners like Matt Kalil and Riley Reiff, and potential impact players like Jonathan Martin and Mike Adams among others.

3. The draft is deep at cornerback (Morris Claiborne, Janoris Jenkins, and Dre Kirkpatrick lead the way), but pretty weak at safety.

Many thanks to Jones for corresponding with me in the midst of  his ongoing battle with lung cancer. Wish him well. And click here to order the draft books that have become respected by so many organizations.
