The 30-year-old British & Irish Lion has just one cameo under his belt since injury hit, coming off the bench for the final quarter of Ospreys game with Glasgow Warriors, and Wales head coach Warren Gatland is understandably concerned about his fitness.
But Jones has come in to the international reckoning following a dislocated shoulder to clubmate Craig Mitchell, suffered in Wales’ 19-13 win over Ireland, and will hope to make the cut when the 22-man squad is named on Wednesday.
But for Llewellyn, who won 92 Welsh caps between 1989 and 2006, any concerns about Jones’ fitness should be thrown out the window ahead of a tough clash with Les Bleus.
“He will feel the pace of the game but what do we want Adam for - to give us 50-60 minutes? Then you could bring the sub on," Llewellyn told the BBC.
"I'd rather do that if I'm perfectly honest than start with a makeshift tighthead.
"He is certainly one of the best scrummaging tightheads in the world and we are going in against a French team who are potentially going to have something to prove.
"The set piece is very good with the French and we certainly need to match them there.
"I think as long as his elbow is right and I'm sure it is now he has had some game time with the Ospreys he won't be a fitness, as a running around problem.”
