TRADE: With the 21st pick in the draft, the Patriots select…
Chandler Jones, defensive end, Syracuse (6-5, 265)
Chandler Jones looks the part. He’s a long armed lineman who can play with power and shed through contact. However, I don’t see a real explosive lineman off the football who has the ability to threaten the edge and drop his shoulder around the corner. There is a lot of upside to his game and if anyone can get him to live up to his talents, it’s New England. But Jones might need some time.
NFL Ceiling: A dominant pass rushing force who can win with power, length and quickness.
NFL Floor: Can be an effective starter, but always leaves you wanting more
