The Arizona Cardinals got a steal in third round offensive tackle Josh Jones. At least, we have seen as much from the NFL Draft pundits and then those within the league that follow these types of things.
Then the offseason hit. Jones was locked down along with the rest of the league.
When Arizona opened up workouts (not the NFL team but the state) Jones jumped back into the swing of things.

Jones was working out with Duke Manyweather, who is by all accounts one of the top offensive line minds and trainers around.
He hosts offensive line summits to get the big guys excited about their work.
NFL players and even college prospects don’t need to do so, but it is also open to coaches and others as well. It is a place where the best come together and learn and workout.
This time included Jones, who is was able to pick the brain of two of the best in the NFL, left tackle and multi-time Pro Bowler Terron Armstead and right tackle and All Pro and Pro Bowler Lane Johnson.
While Jones is putting the work in, it is even more impressive to see him doing so within the community amongst the elites within his own position group.
While I have been unrelentingly excited about Jones, this is just the cherry on top.
