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!
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.
