NFL Prospect Preview: UCLA DE Datone Jones

Jones has been one of the biggest climbers the last few weeks.  His biggest attribute may be the fact he projects to be a pass rusher as a 3-4 defensive lineman.  Usually, the lineman in the 3-4 are space eaters so that part of his game would be a bonus.  Downside is his "hot and cold" motor.

Here is my chat with Ryan Kartje of the Orange County Register on Jones

Jones appears to be the guy that Packers fans are falling in love with because of his pass rushing ability and 3-4 size.  Cullen Jenkins has been missed and Jones has a lot of Jenkins in his game.  Of the DE/OLB types, Jones is the one guy I believe fits the Packers defensive scheme and the pick would be a home run in the court of public perception.  How he fairs on the field, we will find out in September.
