Wickett's World - Datone Jones - the newest Packer - 1st reaction.

Datone Jones - 1st reaction.

We waited all night and around 10pm, NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell came to the podium and announced the Green Bay Packers chose Datone Jones, a Defensive End from UCLA. (pronounced DAY-tone)

At 1st glance, I like the pick.

-He's got good size 6'4" 283 lbs. May add a little weight, but not much.
-He's acutally PLAYED in a 3-4 scheme. No trying to convert him.
-FINALLY a solid replacement for Cullen Jenkins. They've needed this.
-Look at the DL now: Jones, Raji, Worthy. Could be nice!

Combine results:

Height: 6'4
Weight: 283 pounds
Hand size: 10 inches
Arm length: 32-3/4 inches
40-yard dash: 4.80 seconds
Vertical jump: 31.5 inches
Broad jump: 112 inches
Bench press: 29 reps of 225 pounds
20-yard shuttle: 4.32 seconds

He's a violent pass rusher who (according to socuts) is still very raw. Awesome.

Let's see what Packers DL coach Mike Trgovac can do with him. I like the pick.

Lovely analysis...glad I mock draft this pick for them. I was surprised that Sly Williams was still available too. Hmm.

Worthy will be lucky to see the field at all this year after acl surgery. Why say worthy. Daniels is more fitting.

Looks good on paper
Right on, Mike- we have to get more pressure from our DLINE. Hopefully Mr. Mr. Mr. JONES! Can do that. With ARoj signed and sealed for the next 7 years- Capers is on thin-ice to get that Defense back to Championship quality.
