The Patriots have had success when drafting defensive linemen in the first round and it looks like Chandler Jones will carry on that tradition. He broke out with 11.5 sacks and 40 solo stops last year in his sophomore season. Jones is quick enough to generate pressure around the edge, but also has ideal height and strength to block passing lanes and hold up against the run. With Jones and Rob Ninkovich holding down the DE spots, the Patriots have the best tandem of pass rushers they've had in a long time. Jones is a clear DE1 with a shot to rank among the elite at his position for years to come. (May 26)
