Packers select UCLA DT with first-round pick

NEW YORK CITY - The Green Bay Packers selected UCLA defensive end Datone Jones with the 26th pick of Thursday night's NFL draft.

The 6-4, 280 pound Jones tallied 6.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss last season. Jones is expected to be a big part of the Packers youth movement on the defensive line, and is considered to be versatile enough to line up at multiple positions.

The draft continues tonight at 6:30 with rounds 2-3, with rounds 4-7 held on Saturday.
