2016

2015

Jones, who missed six games last year with a hip injury, is bouncing back from an offseason procedure, but the Patriots unsurprisingly picked up his fifth-year option for the 2016 season and there is nothing to suggest that his availability for the coming campaign will be impacted by his repair work. The 25-year-old defensive end wound up with 43 tackles and six sacks in 10 games for the Patriots in 2014, but with his expected return to health, heís a threat to record double-digit sacks while seeing every-down duty on the teamís stout defensive line.

2014

Standing 6-5 with 35 and 1/2-inch arms and excellent quickness, there was always reason to believe Jones would turn into an IDP monster. The only obstacle in his way was durability. He missed five games with a leg injury during his final collegiate year in 2011, and a Week 11 ankle injury drained him of his effectiveness for the end of his 2012 rookie season. Jones had good injury luck in 2013, however, and he turned in an enormous season. With 79 tackles and 11.5 sacks last year, Jones gave reason to believe he can put up stats near the level of J.J. Watt, so long as his lanky legs and ankles avoid further injury. The Patriots are thin at defensive end, so Jones should get all the work he can handle after playing 1,056 snaps last season. You might want to rank Jones among your top three DL if you're the gambling sort, because the payoff will be big if he stays fully healthy. He has a lower floor than some other players in this range, however, as he's still only 1-for-3 on injury-free seasons going back to 2011.

2013

Like Justin Tuck, Jones is a player with a ton of upside but also a low floor once you take his recent injury history into account. The Patriots' 2012 first-round pick bolted to a 33-tackle, six-sack start in his first eight games, a pace that had him firmly in Pro Bowl contention, but he disappeared in the second half of the year likely due to a lingering ankle injury suffered in Week 11. Jones also missed five games due to a lower leg injury at Syracuse in 2011. Nonetheless, once you've gotten past the more reliable options at the position, Jones' upside makes him worth a dice roll.

2012

While like most rookies, heís far from a sure thing, Jones has the skill set and opportunity to post sizable numbers right away, particularly in the tackle category. He finished his Syracuse career with 147 tackles (102 solo) in just 32 games, which projects to roughly 74 stops (51 solo) in an NFL season. With a mammoth wingspan (35.5-inch arms) and flexibility and balance for his size, Jones has truly rare side-to-side range to trap ballcarriers. He can plant, change direction and lunge much more gracefully than is natural for someone of his build. While he is not as explosive or fast as the San Francisco star, the Aldon Smith comparisons are not entirely unwarranted for Jones, though Jones will not rival Smith as a pass rusher.
