Chandler Jones DE/OLB(?) Syracuse
So Mayock put this guy on the map yesterday as his 5th best DE. He was given a 3rd round grade by THE BOARD according to a tweet by Pauline from DraftInsider/SI/otherstuff. Some people are throwing out JPP comparisons and predictions, but you HAVE to figure that's due to him having similar height/weight/conference to a player that is Hansel (so hot) right now.
Anyway, he's a big dude for sure at 6'5" 265, and he's very fast off the snap. Those two things stand out immediately. In 7 games this year he threw up 7.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks, an INT, a couple FF, 3 QB hurries, and 2 passes broken up. For his college career he had 10.5 sacks, 27.5 TFL, 6 PD, 5 FF, and 9 QB hruries over three seasons for Syracuse.
Seeming plusses and minuses since this is a player where there's much to learn...:
* NFL Size
* FL Length
* Straight line speed
* Lots of TFL
* Despite injury shortened season he filled out his stat line.
* Sack production not as high as you want.
* Missed games to injury this year.
Definitely someone to watch out for the rest of the way.
