Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 1/26 -- Datone Jones, DE, 6-4, 285, UCLA...Jones should give Green Bay's short-handed and underwhelming defensive line an immediate upgrade as an ideal fit for its diversified 3-4 scheme. He's athletic, plays physical and tracks the football in a hurry, tying everything together to blow up the backfield with 19 tackles for loss (6.5 sacks) last season. Jones' experience of playing at multiple spots in the Packers' style of defense will allow coordinator Dom Capers to create pass-rushing mismatches in a tandem with outside linebacker Clay Matthews. - The Sports Xchange
