Chandler Jones

The Cardinals clearly knew what they were doing last March when they traded for Jones.  Jones, a linebacker, had 11 sacks this past season. He comes in on the list at number 62.

Although he had 12.5 sacks the previous season with the Patriots, Jones was still a force to be reckoned with.  The Cardinals have already said they wish to keep him in 2017.

By keeping Jones, that may mean the end of Campbell in Arizona but nothing is set in stone.  Jones certainly is going to be worth the money the Cardinals pay him.

Jones had four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and three passes defensed.  The Cardinals got the better end of the deal after sending a draft pick and guard Jonathan Cooper to the Patriots in return.

Jones is just 26-years old.  He will be in just his sixth season when the 2017 regular season rolls around.  He should be a Cardinals linebacker for awhile.  If he keeps putting up numbers like he did in 2016, he will see himself go up on this list because as good as he was, he can be even better.
