I still can't believe Jax spent a 1st rounder on Jones.
Randel El went in the 2nd round, Pearson was undrafted, Crayton was a 7th and Hines Ward was a 3rd round pick.
Risk to reward ratio. Jax took a great risk on Jones. Much greater than any of those other examples. I doubt he rewards them to the levels of Pearson or Ward, border line Hall of Famers*. Even if he is on par with Randel El and Crayton, it still was not worth a 1st round pick.
*I think Drew should be in the HOF, but since he is not I refer to him as borderline.
