Fifth-round rookie left tackle Braxton Jones has gotten the opportunity to work with the starting offensive line over the last week of organized team activities and minicamp. It’s valuable experience that he’s been appreciated.

“I was definitely a little bit surprised,” Jones said. “That surprise went away quick. …Overall, jumping in with the ones has been great.”

For Jones, it’s been beneficial in the sense that it’s forced him to “play faster, think faster,” especially when he comes to getting the cadence down.

Jones got the opportunity to work alongside veteran left guard Cody Whitehair over the last couple of weeks. Whitehair has been hard on him, which he appreciates.

“Getting on me a little more is what I need,” Jones said.
