    Chandler Jones

    6'5 265lbs. DE/OLB

    Pats trade up and get their guy. Pass rusher. Great size. High potential. Mayock thinks he's gonna be the best defensive player from this whole draft class.


    :rocker: First time Ive been happy with our 1st rd in a loooong time.

    Dont'a Hightower

    6'2 260lbs ILB/OLB/DE from Alabama



    Patriots trade up and draft Hightower before Baltimore, who was reportedly wanting to groom him as Rey Lewis replacement. He was spotted at a bar last week wearing a Ravens T-Shirt... so hopefully he'll be burning it now that he's a Patriot.

    I think BB will use him similar to how he wanted to use Adalius Thomas in our defense... He can play any Linebacker position, and Defensive End.

    Chandler will be a star in New England and contribute a steady pass rush.


    Not as flashy as Ingram, but bigger and stronger.

    He looks a bit like McGinest size-wise/length and the way he moves.

    He ws the 9th rated overall player on Mayock's board. Huge upside with this player.

    Re: Welcome Chandler Jones to the Patriots!!

    The Pats traded... up? AND picked an OLB in the first?!

    I'm worried! The last time this board liked what the Pats did it was Maroney and Jackson. If they actually use #31 and draft D again, what will everyone complain about now? :cool:

    Two trade ups, taking defense twice... this is the kind of first round this board has been clamoring for... well... for YEARS.

    Re: Welcome Chandler Jones to the Patriots!!

    This is the PERFECT draft scenario so far.

    We got rid of two 3rd rounders that we really didn't need anyways.


    Finally added some IMPACT players on defense. We had to jump the Ravens for Hightower... he was supposed to be Rey Lewis replacement in BMore.

    Too bad for them. Lucky Patriots!

    McClellan's durability is far worse... he's had 3 concussions already... That's 1 concussion away from sitting out 16 games!


    Very happy with Chandler Jones and Donta Hightower. Both can rush the passer and have ideal size for BB defense.
