About where they’ve been honestly, we were third after week 3, then suddenly dropped off for a couple games, then we started back up the curve so to speak. Especially as Dayo started coming on strong. Let’s up they keep it up.
Jaylon Jones was known to many who follow the predraft process. Many mock drafts had him going in the 3rd or 4th round. Its a mystery as to why no team drafted him until the 7th, as I was watching him languish round after round. I assume he did not score well on a critical analytical metric, because his college resume and pundit write-ups considered him a very good pro prospect.
The groupthink that made Bryce Young the #1 pick, probably also influenced Jones' fall to a lower round than what he should have been picked. JMO. I think Ballard got very lucky that Jones was still there in the 7th.
