--So perhaps Jones, 6-3 7/8 and 283 pounds, can be a taller version of the 6-2 Jenkins, who flourished both as an end in the Packers’ base 3-4 defense and as an inside rusher in the nickel and dime.

“He’s taller than Cullen, but that was one of Cullen’s strengths — his ability to move around and play different spots,” Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said shortly after the Packers picked Jones. “These guys that have the size, they can play at times like a big linebacker and that type of thing.”--

I check the site pretty much everyday and I don't recall that at all. I am assuming by "they" you are talking about people on the site here, because why else would you bring it up here?

The Packers draft for their scheme, which happens to be 3 - 4. This Datone Jones guy fills the DEFENSIVE END position in the 3 - 4. I doubt you'll see him in the DEFENSIVE TACKLE (as you said) position as much.

I hope you can bump some threads where people are bitching about getting 4 - 3 players instead of 3 - 4. Nick Perry was a 4 - 3 DE and they drafted him with the intent on making him a 3 - 4 OLB. That is drafting for 3 - 4. They had a plan.


"They" really means "HE" keeps bitching.

Really like this pick. I was initially worried reading over mock drafts about the talent at DL at #26 until I saw this guy. Was worried about who would be available until the Colts drafted Bjoern Werner. At that point I knew we'd either get Jones or Sylvester Williams. I'm liking the pass rush potential going into next year with this guy. I'm loving his ability to play the run. Hopefully it'll mean less of the 2-DL stuff.

All in all, I'm really excited and confident about the rest of the draft now (even if the Cowgirls grabbed Frederick)

thanks Post received 2 applause.

Yeah, Datone Jones was one of the puzzle pieces we absolutely had to have to improve our D. Granted, there were a number of DEs they could have done this with, but I like what I've seen thusfar in reviewing his play at UCLA. A solid choice to move forward with. NT is probably next.

In reviewing his play, any chance there's good footage vs Oregon? Or more specifically vs Kyle Long? [boxing] Not too early to think about this stuff!

Darn! I just assumed as much with both teams in the PAC-12.

Well after a quick at their schedule from 2011 they did play then but Long wasn't on the team at that point. Would have been neat to see some video footage of the two squaring off in college.

I agree with everything you say.

Now go back and watch the 49ers games from last year, and see how they ran right over us. Adrian Peterson too, although he generally didn't take it straight up the gut.


I have to say nerdmann, I don't agree with you at all that the answer to our problems against Kapernick / All-Day are better (i.e. bigger) "true" 3-4 DEs.

Reviewing the games where our run-D was atrocious, in my opinion, our players simply lacked discipline. Either they could not fill the gaps because they got pushed back by the other team's players, or they simply over-pursued and create a big running lane. Add to that the missed tackles, and you have some horrible run D.

I'm not sure how a true 3-4 DE fixes that. Our problems with gap integrity are so bad that even JJ Watt type DE would not be of much use. Granted, it is massively worrying that our gap discipline is SO bad - hell, our best player on D, Claymaker, is probably the worst culprit in terms of gap integrity. But that, if anything, suggests getting stouter/stronger OLBs whose strong suit may not be rushing the passer. Wilson / Raji / Pickett do a fine enough job of taking on o-linemen. Certainly they did a fine enough job against Peterson in the playoffs.

One thing I will say, we absolutely need a NT out of this draft. Raji has played way too many snaps the past few years, and it is obvious that the Packers do not think Pickett should be playing extended time at NT. I'm looking forward to this and possibly OT being the two areas to be addressed today. But I still am not sure a true 3-4 DE is a primary need given that (as said by a few posters here) we play 60-70% of the game in our sub-packages. It is, after all, a passing league.

The worst, by far, that game was Erik Walden, though. Gladly we won't have to suffer through that again. Next to that, our d-linemen couldn't push the pocket in combination with some bad outside containment. That gave Colin just about every option to run, step up and do just about anything he wanted.

As to Datone... The more I see of this kid, the more I like him. He has a great burst to him and some amazing speed for a guy his size. A bit better even than the 4.8 he posted at 283 at the Combine. Can get to the passer, but plays the run, as well.

The only thing that does worry me is that, if he's to go up to a guy like Iutapi, I think he'll get pushed around quite badly. I just don't see him holding his ground against one of the bigger O-linemen in the league.

I had this guy going to us from the start. Datone Jones will start day one. Put him next to Neal and Raji and you got a solid line. I'm thinking Wilson and Pickett will be fighting for jobs. I don't think Jolly will make the team.

Players I'm looking for in the 2nd round:

Arthur Brown LB Kansas State 6'1'' 241 Pounds- Since the releasing of D.J Smith and A.J Hawk maybe in his last year(s) on this team, this man will add speed to our team and can help us out in coverage. He was also the Big 12 Defensive player of the year.

D.J. Swearinger S South Carolina 5'11'' 208 Pounds- With Eric Reid and Matt Elam long gone, this guy is the best Saftey imo. This guy has the nose for the ball and he's tough as fuck. Take him now and don't look back if no one else excites you. We have no safteys, no offense to Mcmillian and Jennings but they're not gonna cut it. Since Woody left we've a glaring need and imo is our biggest need in the draft.

Zach Ertz TE Stanford 6'5'' 249 pounds- Give Arod as many weapons as you can.. If he's the best on the board take him. Finley will benefit from this not only in 2 TE formations but a push from another TE trying to get play time.
