The Green Bay Packers were in desperate need of a defensive end not only last season, but the last few. C.J. Wilson and Mike Neal tried to fill the gap last season, but that didn't work as planned. Drafting Datone Jones out of UCLA was the perfect pick. The projected starter had 5.5 sacks in his senior year at Los Angeles, playing a huge role at D-End. Jones breaks through the offensive line and pressures the quarterback like a pro, which will help take double, or even triple coverage off Clay Matthews.
With Jones lining up with BJ Raji and Ryan Pickett, the line has unbelievable strength and stamina, including the substitutes. C.J. Wilson, Mike Neal, and even Jerel Worthy will bring valuable time in every game, including starting time when one of these three go down. Jones is expected to land the starting spot right away, meaning the Pack's first round pick is going to get his chance to show off his talents right from the first snap. Will the pick pay off? Will he be a bust? I have confidence in Jones, as does much of Titletown.
