Dre'Mont Jones' Athleticism, Versatility Should Lead to Expanded Role on Ohio State's Defensive Line in 2018

While Dre’Mont Jones has already been a key player on Ohio State’s interior defensive line for the past two seasons, he could be in line for an even bigger role in 2018.

Until Thursday, it wasn’t certain whether Jones would even be back with the Buckeyes for another season, given that he was projected to be an early-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Instead of going pro, however, Jones – who will be a fourth-year junior next season – decided to stay at Ohio State for at least one more year, stating in a tweet that he believed remaining in school would improve his chances of successfully achieving his NFL dream.
