Biography

With the no. 72 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cardinals selected OT Josh Jones out of the University of Houston. Jones is just the fifth Houston player drafted by Arizona - and the first since the team selected DB Delrick Brown in the 11th round (282nd overall) in 1980. He is just the fifth Houston offensive lineman drafted in the last 24 years. In four seasons at Houston (2016-19), Jones started all 45 games he appeared in. All of his starts came at left tackle. After finishing his prep football career, Jones was recruited by then-Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury prior to enrolling at Houston. Current Cardinals offensive line coach Sean Kugler, then the head coach at UTEP, also recruited Jones out of high school. As a senior at Houston last season, Jones allowed just one sack, no QB hits, and three hurries. Pro Football Focus gave him a 93.2 grade for the year, the highest grade ever given to a collegiate offensive tackle.
