Datone Jones

When the Green Bay Packers were finally on the clock Thursday night with the 26th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the task was to find value. That doesn’t mean getting a Hall of Famer or even a perennial Pro Bowler, but rather a player with the talent level worthy of a first-round pick that fits with the team’s scheme and productivity needs.
The Packers found that person in UCLA defensive end Datone Jones.
If Green Bay’s front office was going to sculpt an athlete to be the edge rusher to get to the likes of Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford on a consistent basis, it’s likely they’d come up with the 6’4,” 280-pound frame that the former Bruin will bring to Dom Capers’ defense.
