Yes. Chandler Jones has been hyped up quite a bit. How much of this is because he's got 2 pro athlete brothers? That being said, I buy it. I like the work ethic. I like the frame. All indications say that he's a studious young man. The best defensive player in the draft? No, that's Luke Kuechly. But again, you can understand the hype is created. It isn't going to be an elite defensive draft, and if you can get Chandler in that 18-25 range, he's worth the risk. I know, as a Lions fan, I'd be willing to see Avril traded if we can draft Perry or Jones.
Another thing to remember is that DE is one of those positions that teams usually give time for a player to develop at. Few guys come into the league as dominate as Julius Peppers.
