ESPN’s NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. has the Detroit Lions projected to take Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones with the fifth overall pick in April’s draft.
When talking about Jones, Kiper compared him to Von Miller of the Broncos.
If Jones has the ability to be as good as Miller, the Lions would get quite a player.
Kiper has the Eagles taking Alabama cornerback Dee Millner with the fourth pick. If he drops to the Lions at five, they need to take Millner over Jones. They’re in dire need of a good cornerback.
