Packers pick Datone Jones in first round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 25, 2013 – 10:13 pm

GREEN BAY–The Packers selected UCLA defensive end Datone Jones with the 26th pick of tonight’s NFL draft. Jones, 6-4, 280, registered 6.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss last season. He is considered versatile enough to play in several schemes.

Jones was one of the standout players at the Senior Bowl and at the scouting combine this past winter. He immediately addresses the Packers’ need for young talent on an aging defensive line.

“His size, balance, explosiveness and pass-rush ability make him scheme and position-versatile,” one draft publication said of Jones.
