Buffalobills.com has learned that Syracuse defensive end and Rochester native Chandler Jones is one of four players visiting One Bills Drive on a pre-draft visit today.
Jones is a favorite of ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay. Though he doesn’t have great timed speed (4.87 40-time at Combine) he does have good burst and strength. That along with a strong work ethic makes Jones an attractive prospect with McShay calling him “the most underrated prospect in the entire draft.”
“Everyone says the production is not there and all of that, but I think at 6’5″ with the potential to get to 270 pounds… he’s proven can he play the left side, the right side. He even can drop in coverage. He’s shown that on tape at times,” said McShay. “I just think he’s strong. He’s physical. He also has enough athleticism to get after the quarterback.”
McShay went on to say that he thought Jones would be a solid value as a late first-round pick in the mid to upper 20’s overall.
