2016 NFL Draft

10 Years of Pick No. 27: Odds Are in Packers’ Favor

[tps_title]2015[/tps_title]

Byron Jones

Byron Jones, cornerback, Dallas Cowboys

Jones started 11 games, split between cornerback and free safety for the Cowboys as a rookie. He had 66 tackles, nine passes defended and no interceptions.

We’re not going to judge a guy on a single season, but Jones took his lumps, especially when playing corner. That’s probably not his best position, but he had to play it more often than the Cowboys would have liked because of a rash of injuries. He became a full-time starter at free safety in November.

Jones appears to be trending in the right direction and should at least be a solid starter for a while.

    Odds are in Packers favor? Unless of course you factor in Teds 1st round results since 2005. That is the moment when you discover that this article is worthless, on basing what has happened with the last 10 years picks of the 27th pick. which has absolutely no bearing on the quality of player that will be chosen with the 27th pick this year.

    Brilliant.
