Packers take UCLA defensive end in first round of NFL draft
The Green Bay Packers selected UCLA defensive end Datone Jones with the 26th pick of Thursday night's NFL draft.
The 6-4, 280-pound Jones tallied 6.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss last season. Jones is expected to be a big part of the Packers youth movement on the defensive line, and is considered to be versatile enough to line up at multiple positions.
The draft continues at 6:30 p.m. Friday with rounds 2 and 3. Rounds 4 through 7 will be held on Saturday.
