Walter Football had this to say about the Packers' pick, and gave it an A- grade:

Datone Jones has been discussed as high as No. 19 to the Giants, so the Packers are getting good value with Datone Jones. They're also getting a tremendous upgrade on the defensive line.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports gave it a B+:

Ted Thompson always seems to pick good football players. Datone Jones owned the Senior Bowl week. He is a perfect pick for the Packers. He will be a 3-4 end.
