    From what little I've found on him, he sounds like a good pick for the 6th round.

    Seems underrated with a good motor. Can't go wrong in the 6th with that

    From what I'm seeing, he looks like a good pick to me. High motor, penetrator.

    I think he'll be good in rotation with Mitchell.

    Wasn't a guy a looked at, but what I've seen so far he looks like a good player. Looks like he could challenge Mitchell for playing time to me. Very good pass rusher, looks strov against the run.

    B. Nice pick, fills a need. I dont think he has starter potential, but you rarely get starters this late.

    Grade A

    For a late sixth rounder, it's going to be very difficult to find a better prospect than Jones.
    Even if he ends up as a rotational player, it's still great value.

    Jones improved his play from 2011 to 2012, you can see it even in the first game against the Gators.

    The things that I mentioned when I evaluated his 2011 tapes, and remarked that I liked to see him work on.

    I really like this pick in the sixth round.
    Great potential to be the Texans best sleeper yet.

    Sure was. He'd be a starter on this Line right now.

    We kept Willie Jefferson and Sam Montgomery instead of him. Cool stuff.
