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.
interchangeable parts, versatility per position are intangible assets that increase a players value to a team.

Datone Jones is one of the top Defensive Linemen available in this year’s draft. He possesses an NFL ready frame, with excellent playing strength and bulk. He can play multiple positions along the defensive line and exhibits power pass rush moves from all of them. He has good quickness for his size, but his strength is his best tool. He plays with good leverage and is able to simply out muscle and overpower linemen.

At the Senior Bowl he showed much more violent hands which led to him being the most dominate defender in Mobile. Jones is still a bit raw as a pass rusher and will get better as he develops more pass rush moves. If needed he could add 10-15 pounds and move inside to 3-Tech where I believe he could develop into a stud as a pass rushing defensive tackle. Jones is a high-character individual, overcoming tough surroundings and circumstances to become a top prospect.

He is a focused and driven person, understanding schemes and defensive philosophies very well. As a prospect Jones’ combination of power, speed and pass rush potential will make him a top five defensive end prospect for the 2013 draft.
