You can never have enough defensive linemen. The Cleveland Browns spoke to one such talented lineman today at the 2016 NFL Combine, meeting with Chris Jones out of Mississippi State.

The 6'6, 310 pound defensive tackle is projected to be drafted in the second to third round, according to, though Jones expects to be drafted in the first round.

Jones played defensive tackle for the Bulldogs but can also play end.

Where do you fit in?

"I’m versatile. I can play defensive end, defensive tackle in the NFL. I can move around. I can also play nose guard. I can be useful in many situations."

Can you play either front?

"It wouldn’t matter. I can play a 40 or 30 front. I can play 3-4 end or 4-3 tackle."

In college, what was your spot?

"I mostly played 4-3 tackle, but if I had to play end, I could play that on third downs. I think I’m a defensive end that’s playing tackle, so wherever they put me."
