Datone Jones and Mike Daniels Key Packers’ Defense Line Resurgence

The defensive line has not been a strong suit of the Green Bay Packers over the past couple of seasons but with the emergence of Mike Daniels as an impact player last season and potential break out of Datone Jones in 2014, the Packers suddenly have the makings of a dominant defensive line. Daniels, a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has been a spark plug for the Packers ever...

Packers’ Datone Jones won’t be satisfied until he’s the best

Second-year Packers defensive end Datone Jones is hungry going into the upcoming season as he strives to be the best in the NFL. “I won’t be satisfied until I’m the best in the league,” Jones said. “That’s the only way I’d be satisfied. Other than that, I still won’t be satisfied until I retire. No matter what year I have next year or the years to come, I don’t...

Packers' top 2013 pick Datone Jones expects to break out in his second year

Snaps became precious for Datone Jones as a rookie. By Week 16, his rations dwindled to four snaps. In Week 17? Five. Not what you expect out of a first-round pick. Surely not what Jones expected. "Two snaps per game, 13 percent of the snaps on the year," said Jones, not exaggerating that much. "That's what you get, 31/2 sacks in a season. Playing more, who knows...

Packers: Mike Daniels and Datone Jones Provide Potent Interior Pass Rush

Outsiders may still believe that the Green Bay Packers have a long way to go on the defensive side of the football. Yet, what they might not realize is the Packers have been collecting talented defensive players since the 2012 NFL Draft and this will be the year when we start seeing the fruits of that labor.

Packers Breakout Candidate: Datone Jones

Disappointing is one word that could be used to describe Datone Jones' rookie season. When the Packers selected him 26th overall in last year’s NFL Draft, the Packers were hoping he’d provide an immediate impact. We all know that’s not how it turned out, but, that’s not to say that Jones didn’t show potential to eventually becoming that impact player many thought he’d...

Packers' Datone Jones out 'a couple days' after ankle injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Based on one play in the NFL, Green Bay Packers rookie first-round pick Datone Jones has had very mixed results. On the positive side, Jones impressed fellow defensive lineman B.J. Raji with his quick pass-rush move. On the negative side, Jones suffered an ankle injury on the play and was forced to make a very early exit in his NFL preseason debut. When coach...

Datone Jones: The forgotten Senior Bowl practice

While I was a huge Margus Hunt fan leading up to the draft, I quickly jumped on the Datone Jones bandwagon after a little investigation. Sounding like a broken record, we all know that the Green Bay Packers defense was destroyed by the 49ers on multiple occasions last season. With Pickett getting up there in age, and more importantly weight, and Wilson not performing not even half...
