And if you have a guy who is a great pass rusher generally you don't move him to a position where he doesn't rush the passer much.
For instance. Denver which runs a 4-3 drafted Von Miller. Who played a similar position to Jones, but did drop into coverage more often. Denver essentially just plays Miller at DE now. Hand up or hand down. He rushes the passer on every pass play except for the occasional zone drop (not any different than Osi or JPp dropping into coverage).
I don't dislike Jones at all. But saying he's a linebacker is simply untrue. He would have to show the ability to play there. Which he has not done in college. He is a pass rusher. That's where he plays, that's where he excels.

And of course size is always important. Generally a guy who is under 260 pounds is not going to be great against the run from the DE spot.
