Jones, Hightower meet the press

In a story now posted to ESPNBoston.com, Mike Rodak writes on the first day in Foxborough for the Patriots' two first-round picks, Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower.

Jones was scheduled to appear at an introductory news conference early Friday afternoon, but plans changed after his direct flight from Syracuse to Boston was delayed. This forced the 21st overall selection to fly through New York City en route to his new home in New England.

When the easygoing Jones finally took the podium at Gillette Stadium, something wasn't quite right. The sleeves of his dress shirt were rolled up to his elbows, and no sport coat was in sight. Jones soon explained.

"I didn't know I was going to come here for a press conference," he admitted. "I was in my hoodie and my jeans, and they (told me) 'You have to come here and wear a suit tomorrow.'"
