    Bill Belichick Quote

    “Chandler is a little younger, has a little less experience,” the coach said. “But he’s a very talented player, a smart guy, works hard, did a good job against good quality players he’s faced in the last couple years.

    25 Jones Family Draft day photos

    • Great Size
    • Very Athletic Lower Half
    • Good Ball Recognition
    • Really good footwork
    • Great Pass Rusher
    • High motor

    • Needs to improve against the run
    • Must Pay lower
    • Lean frame
    • Not naturally explosive
    I liked receiver Taj Smith. He seems to run great pass patterns — very sharp cuts at high speed.

    5. Linebacker
    On the roster: A year ago, linebacker was the Lions' most glaring need. Now, they have a stable starting unit with Stephen Tulloch, Justin Durant and DeAndre Levy, and two young backups in Doug Hogue and Ashlee Palmer. Durant and Levy are in the final year of their contracts, so there are some long-term concerns there. But Hogue has a bright future ahead of him as a fifth-round pick last year.

    Record-setting choice: Technically, Richardson is the highest the Browns ever have drafted a running back. But if you include draft-day trades, Richardson is the second-highest back chosen, 50 years after No. 1 pick Ernie Davis.

    Davis was acquired via a trade with Washington in 1962. The Browns traded speedy halfback Bobby Mitchell, a future Hall of Famer, for Davis. The intent was for Davis to star in the backfield with Jim Brown.

    "It would have been a powerhouse backfield the likes of which the NFL had never seen," former Browns owner Art Modell said in a 2008 interview with The Plain Dealer. "No defense could zero in on Jim Brown with Ernie Davis in the backfield."

    The vision never came to fruition, however. Davis, just 23, was diagnosed with leukemia just before training camp in 1962. Davis never played for Cleveland, and succumbed to the illness in 1963.

    Prior To The Draft This Fan Got It Right

    (Note:At the time the Pat's had the 27th and 31st overall picks)
    Chandler Jones: Okay the Patriots would probably have to trade up to get the defensive end out of Syracuse. That isn't usually Belichick's style, but then again he could surprise us all. This may just be more of a dream than anything else, but he would fit in very well.

    This Official Pat's Blog Guessed Jones At 20

    Chandler Jones, DE/OLB, Syracuse: Jones may not be an elite pass rusher, but he has big potential. He has the length, athleticism and versatility to help in both the 4-3 and the 3-4. He has big upside and a high ceiling. He may go around 20, but maybe he’ll slip. Or maybe Belichick will go get him.
