2012 NFL Draft Results: Patriots Do Unthinkable Trading Up for Chandler Jones
Chandler Jones is a guaranteed All-Pro.
With the 21st pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected Chandler Jones out of Syracuse.
Instant Reaction: New England did what?
Analysis: I fully expect Chandler Jones to develop into the next James Harrison or DeMarcus Ware. Bill Belichick never trades up.
New England traded down with Clay Matthews and Dez Bryant on the board. For them to not just hold on to a first-round selection, but to trade up must means Belichick and company fell in love with Jones’ pass rushing ability.
They desperately needed a fiend off the edge and they got one.
