Jones has frame to play 5 tech DE to bookend Watt. Powerful, fluid, strong hands really had a big Senior Bowl week.

Impressive interview & rocked up @ weigh-in with proverbial bubble butt. Very intriguing, fast rising, pass rushing prospect to keep an eye on.
Looks like an awesome player. But is that what we really need?
If he's a 5 tech, he'll be replacing Watt.... or subing for Watt, he won't really be a "bookend" opposite Watt. What we need is a dynamic 3 tech, which is what Antonio plays.
Unless you plan on using this big guy as a big WOLB (like Mario) he'll disappear inside, unless he's like Antonio & just another breed all together.
