Datone Jones 2014 Report Card – Packers Player Grades

1) Introduction: Year 2 would be a pivotal year for Datone Jones, the Packers 1st round pick from the 2013 after an ankle injury derailed his rookie season.  Would he bounce back and live up to his lofty draft status or sink into obscurity like fellow first round draft pick Nick Perry? 2) Profile: Datone Jones Age: 24 Born: July 24, 1990 in Los Angeles, CA Height: 6’4″...

Datone Jones Becoming a Force on Green Bay Packers’ Defensive Line

When the Green Bay Packers selected Datone Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, they thought they were going to get a dominant force on their defensive line. Last season, Jones struggled and in part due to injury was not able to make the immediate impact expected. But now, in year two, the freakish defensive lineman from UCLA, is making plays and finally looks like the...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Guys That Have to be Good: Datone Jones

Datone Jones is the one and only returner from last season’s list.  The Packers’ 2013 1st round pick flashed his huge potential during camp and then suffered an ankle injury that, according to the coaching staff, limited his productivity all season long.  I’m actually in favor of a “redshirt” year for defensive linemen, pass rushers and wide receivers so Jones’ lack...

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: Mike Daniels and Datone Jones Provide Potent Interior Pass Rush

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...

Rookie Jones ignores critics, happy with play

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Datone Jones isn't lacking in self-confidence. That was apparent already during training camp when the Green Bay Packers' rookie defensive lineman dubbed himself Tornado Jones and Hurricane Jones. First-round picks carry inflated expectations, though. That's the reality for a player who's selected on the prime-time television event that is the opening night of...
