Syracuse DE Chandler Jones
In February, Jones made my first "overrated" list since many had him as a potential first-round pick at the time. Fast forward a couple of months and apparently Jones is now the hottest pass rushing commodity in the draft and a likely top-25 selection. I find it very hard to believe Jones can contribute immediately. Beyond his ideal frame and length, Jones lacks coordination after his initial extended first step. His lanky style does not bode well in terms of explosion when changing directions or absorbing contact when his opposition gains the leverage and power advantage. Jones has sound hand placement but it is more for technique than authority, only occasionally flashing true strength when extending and forcing the offensive lineman off balance. I see methodical, long strides anytime explosion is necessary. Length can be a great asset and Jones frequently swats down passes with extension but the lack of a consistent anchor, proper body positioning on the edge and overall power to his game is sorely missed. I look at Jones as a left defensive end or five technique in a three man front project with a frame to gain 20 pounds that will add force to his natural length. But even then, other than giving up some length, how different is that from UNC's Quinton Coples who is that player right now. Astoundingly, it appears Jones may be drafted ahead of Coples.
