Breaking: Patriots select Cyrus Jones

By Christopher Frangolini

With the 60th pick in the NFL draft, the New England Patriots selected Cyrus Jones, a versatile corner back out of Alabama.

Jones was the first pick selection made by New England after penalties levied by the league forfeited the 29th pick in the first round.

“Jones is a starting nickel corner with added value in the return game,” sad Mike Mayock of NFL Network. “Atypical of corners, he has great ball skills. He is a well-coached, technique-sound player.”

The 5-foot-10 Jones, won a national championship under Nick Saban in 2012.

He had seven career interceptions and in 2014 led the SEC with 13 pass defends. Jones also returned four punts as a senior.
