While CBS Sports’ Rob Rang likes to compare Jones to Von Miller, it’s clear he’s not anywhere close to as fast as Miller.
Jones was extremely productive in college, even if his athleticism is questionable at best.
The Steelers need an outside rusher in their 3-4 scheme, and with Jones getting past New Orleans it’s no surprise Pittsburgh jumped at the opportunity.
