The man that the Patriots actually traded up for. It’s really hard not to be expect extraordinary things out of Jones when Belichick is absolutely salivating over him. If Belichick saw this much promise in this guy to do something sacrilegious like trade up in the draft in order to get him, it’s tough not to think he could be an all world player.
Mayo, Spikes, Ninkovich, Carpenter, Fletcher and now Hightower. Not a bad core of linebackers. When you add an “all business” type player like Hightower, the complexion of your group tilts towards the nasty side. And by nasty I mean brute force animalistic type football. Mayo, Spikes, and Hightower are all absolute bruisers. Throw in the veteran white guy linebacker (Carpenter)with unprecedented dad strength off the bench and you have a well rounded crew of tough physical bastards.
All business. Was a born son of Belichick.
