Pats sign first-rounder Chandler Jones

The Patriots have announced the signing of first-round choice Chandler Jones. Just Dont'a Hightower and Jake Bequette remain among Patriots draftees to sign.

The 6-5, 265-pounder, a defensive end Syracuse, was picked at 21 overall. He had 147 total tackles, 10.0 sacks, five forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery for The Orange.

New England currently has him listed as a DE, though part of Jones' appeal is his versatility. Might he play a little OLB in the 4-3? Head coach Bill Belichick has said the expectation is Jones will end up as an "elephant" pass-rusher who stands up in the 4-3, lining up weak side, opposite the opponent's tight end.

The team will have a better idea of where to put him in the coming days. Now that Jones has signed, he can hop into New England's OTAs.
