This could go down as one of the best value picks of the entire draft.
Jones was originally regarded by many as arguably the top cornerback in the draft. Unfortunately, he tore his Achilles at Washington’s pro day in March, which dropped his draft stock significantly.
In three years at Washington, Jones tallied 145 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, eight interceptions and six forced fumbles. Over the last two seasons, he allowed just one touchdown in coverage, which is, for lack of a better term, ridiculous.
While Jones may not play in 2017 because of his injury, that doesn’t change the fact that the Eagles got a rare talent at corner. This will go down as a not good, but great pick for Philadelphia.
