After spending a first-round pick on Chandler Jones last season and acquiring Armond Armstead from the CFL, it’s not likely the Patriots spend the No. 29 overall pick on a defensive end/defensive tackle pass-rush specialist, but if they did, Datone Jones would be the guy. He’d be a perfect strong-side defensive end in the Patriots’ 4-3, and could play either three-technique defensive tackle or five-technique defensive end. Jones’ best attribute is his ability to get into the backfield through the interior. He could take the role Jermaine Cunningham had last season and perfect it.
