Jones will be a gamble for any team. Torn achilles is something that is very difficult to come back thru for a player having to do the motions a DB does. Will be very interested to see his recovery.


Yeah I wouldn't touch him unless we are talking about a 6th or 7th round pick. I will add that it depends on the severity of the tear.

If Sidney Jones is available at pick #86, would you take him.

Definitely.

CBSSports analysis:

COMPARES TO: Trae Waynes, Minnesota Vikings: Though he possesses a slimmer build than scouts would prefer, Jones' light feet and loose hips allow him to shadow receivers in coverage. Like Waynes, Jones plays bigger than he measures due to terrific timing on his leaps and wiry strength.

--Rob Rang (1/16/17)

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/2139635/sidney-jones


For what its worth, NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares him to Marcus Peters.

NFL COMPARISON Marcus Peters
BOTTOM LINE Jones is a "casino cornerback" who has the ball skills and instincts to tilt the odds in his favor when quarterbacks look his way. His toughness and desire to make plays on the ball is remarkably similar to his friend and off-season workout buddy, Marcus Peters. Jones has lockdown corner talent but will have to prove he can add muscle without sacrificing speed. His football character and play traits should make him a long-time starter with Pro Bowl potential.

Those who are pushing for drafting Sidney Jones are probably too young to remember Tripp Welborne, Michigan Wolverine, who played 2 games for the Vikings after reconstructive surgery on his knee (injured in college), then retired.

Drafting is done based on future potential, not past performance.

How long ago was that? They've come a long way in medical recoveries. I'm sure the medical staff would have to give them the ok to draft him.

This is the first I've heard of this kid, put he might worth a chance in the mid rounds

WR Ishmael Zamora from Baylor is going to be an interesting prospect. 6'4 220lbs and probably going to run 4.5 or faster, while jumping 37" plus in the vertical. He's got a ton of potential.

I wanted to see the kid do something special this year... Kids an athlete.
Another case of dumb stuff done off the field.

There are quite a few good RBs in this draft, but one guy that doesnt get enough love imo is Marlon Mack. I would love if MIN took him around the 3rd-4th range.

My top 10 backs currently are:
1. J. Mixon
2. L. Fournette
3. D. Cook
4. A. Kamara
5. M. Mack
6. C. McCaffrey
7. D. Foreman
8. S. Perine
9. W. Gallman
10. K. Hunt

Talk about stacked, i just want MIN to come away with one of these guys.

I'm seeing a lot of Dan Feeney love, and for what it's worth, I think he is/could be a great gaurd, but I do have some concern with his injuries, which would make me hesitant to grab him in the 2nd. Anyone else worried about that?

I assume you mean James Conner, and I like him, but I might like his story more than I like him as a pro. I don't think he will ever be a full time RB in the league, but he does have an outside shot as a #3 on a roster.

You do understand that medical procedures and technology have advanced in the last 30 years, right?

Yes.

You do understand that no one can predict the future with certainty with regard to medical issues, right?
