Breaking: Patriots trade up and select Chandler Jones 21st overall
Well there’s two ways to look at this. One is the way that all us amateur draftniks who weren’t blown away by Jones, or there’s the Mike Mayock way, who said that he thinks in a couple years Jones will be the best defensive player from this draft class.
Jones will be used in a variety of ways, using his great size and athleticism to make an impact on the defensive side of the ball that is much needed.
Let’s just go with what Mayock said and allow ourselves to get really, really excited. The Patriots just traded UP and took a pass rusher! Wow.
