Of course, he could also rush from the DE position and would be great in a rotation.
I'm thinking that DE may be more of a necessity than DT, especially given that we have Ratliff, Hatcher, Lissemore, and Crawford. Then also maybe Spears, Ben Bass, and Price can make a push too for depth purposes.
Ideally, I agree you take Jones with a trade down, but I don't think you could trade down too far.
I think a team like Pittsburgh could jump up. Especially with the Giants right behind Dallas. They need a MLB. i dont think Jones' Stock has driven him inside the top 20. Maybe later it will but he was a solid round 2 pick. Right now i think hes borderline 1-2
