The Patriots signed first-round pick Chandler Jones, the player New England traded up six spots to acquire in the draft with the expectation he can ultimately become an every-down pass rusher in coach Bill Belichick's multiple-front defense. Jones signed a four-year deal with an option for a fifth year, as is customary for first-round picks under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. Jones, 6-5, 266, had 10 sacks at Syracuse and was a three-year starter for the Orange. He's listed as a defensive end, but Belichick said in April that Jones will also play outside linebacker when the Patriots align in a 3-4 front. The Patriots have two unsigned draft choices, including the team's other first-round pick, linebacker Dont'a Hightower, and third-round pick Jake Bequette, a defensive lineman from Arkansas.
