Patriots CB Jack Jones Lands on ESPN’s List of Top 10 RookiesBob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots cornerback Jack Jones has become one of the top early success storylines in 2022.

Coming into the year, the Patriots backfield was entering a transition following the departure of J.C. Jackson in free agency.

However, the fourth-round pick from Arizona State has excelled through his first nine games, recording 24 tackles, one forced fumble, five passes defended, and two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown off Aaron Rodgers.

As a result of his play, ESPN named Jones the seventh-best rookie so far this season.

“Jones has been a rock star as a nickel cornerback and is the Patriots’ long-term future at the position. When teams target him in coverage, they have minus-11.9 expected points added, which trails just (Sauce) Gardner among rookie corners.”, Analyst Matt Miller said in the story.

Jones will look to continue the strong start in the second half of the season with some tougher tests ahead.
