The NFL named Jones the NFL Rookie of the Month on Thursday. Jones recorded 17 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles in four games.
The Patriots needed a pass-rusher and took Jones in the first round. Both Jones and fellow first-round pick Dont'a Hightower have upgraded New England's front seven. Jones and Hightower look like two building blocks on defense in New England for years to come.
