Cardale Jones is the Heaviest Quarterback at NFL Combine at 253 Pounds

Cardale Jones is going to have to do a lot to convince NFL scouts that he’s good enough to be one of their quarterbacks next season.

The QB out of Ohio State is at the NFL Combine this weekend and will be hoping he can show he’s better than the man who led the Buckeyes to the national championship in 2015.

He entered that season as a redshirt sophomore, but ended up as Urban Meyer’s quarterback after replacing J.T. Barrett in the Big Ten Championship game against Wisconsin.

Jones led the Buckeyes to victory in that game and in the Allstate Sugar Bowl against Alabama before achieving national glory against the Oregon Ducks.

He could have entered last year’s NFL draft, but chose to play another season at Ohio – and that didn’t go as well as his three-game debut year.

Ohio did finish 12-1, but a loss to Michigan State saw them miss out on the College Football Playoff and Jones’ final game came against Illinois in November after being replaced by Barrett for the final three games.

Jones isn’t listed in Mike Mayock’s top five quarterbacks in the draft and he’s not expected to go in the first round, according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.

And his weight might go against him in the draft, considering he’s been recorded at a huge 253 pounds – the heaviest of any other quarterback available to NFL teams:

That’s a whopping 18 stone plus that Jones weighs – and might raise question marks about his mobility if he was to go on and play in the NFL.

Would Jones’ weight make you have second thoughts about taking him in the draft?
