You never know and i think there is a 70% chance they draft DL at 25.

I bet there's a LOT of people 'interested' in Jones.

The way I view Jones is a poor man's J.J. Watts. A little lighter and his desire is questionable.

He seems a little bit like Lawrence Jackson to me.

I don't understand the hype this guy is garnering. Not really all that impressed with him. He just strikes me as a "safe" or "meh" pick. I hope the Seahawks don't go the safe route and get someone with a high ceiling. I like Dion Jordan more than Jones. He would add some speed and also could help fill the void at OLB. If they feel they can grab him, I'd like to see them move up with a team (a team that may look to move down) to grab him. I think he may be in the 15-20 pick range.

Since the Senior Bowl the Hawks and Pete Carroll have shown intertest in Datone and Pete recruited him from Comton. They met with Jones again at the combine. There is a history here with Pete ,just how much interest they have is unclear but he appears to be on the list of players that they like. One of the reasons they took Irvin was Pete's knowledge of the player from college.

I think he's overrated personally. All that's been talked about at the combine is what a great athlete he is. He ran a 4.80 at 283lbs. Cam Jordan ran a 4.69 at 287lbs in 2011. That's a crazy athlete. He's a solid football player and will make a nice rotational cog for any defense. But it's hard to pin down what his natural position is at the next level. You seem him getting smashed against the run working inside, he's not a great edge rusher. He flashes good and bad tape. Suddenly he's a first round pick for a lot of people. I think that's a bit OTT.
