Reaction: Expected

Round: 1st

Overall Pick: 17th

Pre-Draft Ranking: 11th

Drafting Team: Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers hit the mark when they drafted Jones to fill their need at outside linebacker.

Originally thought to be one of the top prospects in the draft, Jones dropped on many draft boards due to his spinal stenosis and sub-par pro day numbers.

What was other team's loss was the Steelers' gain as they got a player who can hit the edge and get to the quarterback.

The  tape convinced the Steelers on Jones, giving them a big steal in the first round.
