Not going to lie, I'm giddy about the LB group next year. Jones probably is the least talented of who will see the field but with a three man front and those LBs Todd Orlando can have a hell of a fun time plotting against offenses.I wonder if the decision was made easier by good insurance feedback based on his draft grade. If he projected as a top 4 round pick - which I think likely - then it's possible he could have taken out an insurance policy on any potential injuries in 2019 which could hurt his draft stock for 2020. Plus, as Lefty alludes to, his injuries in 2018 were of the freak variety, meaning he won't get the dreaded "injury prone" label.
Best-case scenario, he has a breakout year and becomes a first round pick. Not a bad bet (he's certainly capable), if you can hedge.
