When a player from Saskatchewan enters a hotel room to conduct an official CFL Combine interview with a team not named the Roughriders, he almost always hears the same question.

Will you want to go home and play for the Riders?

They don’t come much more Saskatchewan than offensive lineman Brett Jones. He hails from Weyburn, plays his college ball at the University of Regina and is Prairie-boy tough when it comes to handling defensive linemen.

“I’ve had that question a lot,” Jones said with a laugh. “No, I’m fine with playing wherever.”

It appears the team that drafts Jones will be getting a solid prospect at an important Canadian position. He’s currently the No. 4-ranked offensive lineman leading up to May’s CFL draft, and he handled himself well during Sunday’s one-on-one drills.

Jones is trying to follow in the footsteps of another Weyburn product in Riders left guard Brendon LaBatte, who is one of the top offensive linemen in the CFL.
