4. Chandler Jones
Jones, speedy and more experienced in his sophomore campaign, has the ability to be the premier sack specialist the Patriots have hoped for since Richard Seymour left after the 2008 season.
In 2012, Jones finished with six sacks and 45 combined tackles while being hobbled by ankle injuries in the latter half of the season. This year, he figures to be an every-down defensive end and the team’s primary source of pressure. He’d be tough to replace.
