Datone Jones, DE, UCLA (1st round, No. 26 overall)
Jones was a disruptive player in the backfield as a senior at UCLA and Green Bay hoped that production would translate to the NFL. But Jones never would become that kind of player, even as the Packers tried to move him to outside linebacker. He had 3.5 sacks as a rookie, but in four years in Green Bay he had only 73 tackles and 10 sacks. The Packers didn’t pick up his fifth-year rookie option and he left after the 2017 season for Minnesota, which released him before the season. Jones signed with Detroit, but lasted only a week, before landing with San Francisco and then Dallas. For what it’s worth, the pick after Jones in the 2013 draft was wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins while linebacker Alec Ogletree and center Travis Frederick both went a few picks later.
