Rookie No. 3: D’Anthony Jones, DE, Houston
Given the current situation at pass rusher for the Chicago Bears, it is more likely that of the three names listed here, Jones has the best chance, maybe because the depth is so thin at this point, anyone coming in and providing some help is welcome. Still, the concern about Jones is the size.
Last we checked, he was six feet, 276 pounds. Not ideal, but if you can play, you can play. Not to mention, in his final season at Houston, Jones racked up eight sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss, and an FBS-leading five forced fumbles for the Cougars. The point is, he can get to the quarterback, which is important in this day and age.
If there is anything the Chicago Bears know about, it’s running backs and pass rushers. Despite occasional busts, most of them tend to play well in the Windy City. Jones just has to keep putting in the work, and soon, he could find himself sticking around when the final cuts come down at the end of the preseason.
