GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Datone Jones understands the expectations. Everyone who is a first-round draft pick in the NFL does.
"The biggest thing I think people think when I'm not playing, being a first-round pick, they think that being a first-round pick I should be able to come in and just get the sacks and this, that and the other," the Green Bay Packers rookie defensive end said on Friday.
"But that's not the case."
Jones isn't alone among the Packers' recent first-round picks.

He had a kill shot on the QB in the preseason and the RT tripped him, turning his ankle.
He'll be fine.

He's improving. I just don't know what people expect when the guy is injured and is playing out of position. Imo.
The thing I hate that they do with him is put him in the middle of the defense line when there's only 3 on the field. He'll get double/triple teamed every time.
The thing I actually like about him is he hustles to the ball every play. He's a moter guy. He's not the greatest pass rusher in the world but he'll get better as the season goes on.
This quote is very interesting..
“I think Datone is a work in progress,” Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac said. “Like I told him the other day, ‘Really with where you were, we’re four games into the season now, and with as much training camp as you missed and preseason games you missed, it’s like you’re coming out of the preseason right now.’ The thing that he has to learn that’s different for him is, he’s got to learn to come in for a play and kick some (butt) and then leave. Come in for a play, kick some (butt), then leave. He’ll get it.”
This makes some sense to me why he has had a hard time transitioning. Maybe he's one of those players who the more you play will get better as the game progresses. Kinda like a running back. They feed off of reps.
