    Don Jones in the 7th

    Name: Don Jones, S, Arkansas State
    Overview: You can't teach speed. That's how Don Jones, a strong safety for the Arkansas State Red Wolves and junior college transfer, has drawn interest around the NFL, including from the Patriots. The Baltimore Sun reported that he conducted a private workout for the Patriots recently. At the Arkansas State pro day, he ran a 4.42 and 4.40 40-yard dash, according to NFLDraftScout.com. He also recorded a remarkable 42-inch vertical jump, which has skyrocketed his draft stock. While he was estimated as a third- or fourth-round pick originally, that has more than likely changed. For his senior season, he recorded an unofficial 72 tackles with one interception and two passes defensed.
    Attributes
    Height: 5-11
    Weight: 191

    Workout results
    40-yard dash: 4.40
    Bench: 17
    Broad jump: 10'07"
    20-yard shuttle: 4.48
    3-cone drill: 7.19

    very good article about Don Jones.

    "I've been hearing some good stuff," Jones told FOX Sports Next in a telephone interview. "The visits have been real nice so far. I've been enjoying meeting the coaches and general managers. I loved meeting with the Dolphins. They definately made me feel at home. I really liked the trip to Miami"

    Worst pick of the entire draft. I had him projected as the 254th player on my board based on YouTube clips. For Ireland to take him at 250 is a major reach.
