It's time for No. 16 on the list of players on the countdown from No. 24 to No. 1.

No. 16:

Player: Jarvis Jones

Position: Backup left tackle

The rundown: Jones transferred to OU after serving in a reserve role at LSU during its national championship run in 2007. So, he redshirted in 2008, and then he had a pretty good season a year ago before suffering a heel injury that sidelined him for the remainder of the year after the Nebraska game. All in all, he finished up playing a total of nine games on his way to earning All-Big 12 honorable mention by the Associated Press.

Expectations for 2010: At 6-foot-7, 277 lb., Jones is a gritty guy that could step into the blindside position for quarterback Landry Jones on the offensive line. Right now he’s not in a starting spot, but don’t be surprised if he sees some playing time on the line somewhere, especially since he worked at right guard and right tackle both last year.


No. 24: Bronson Irwin

No. 23: Josh Aladenoye

No. 22: Brandon Crow

No. 21: Cameron Kenney

No. 20: Brian Lepak

No. 19: Trent Ratterree

No. 18: Drew Allen

No. 17: Tavaris Jeffries
