NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt released his 2016 All-Rookie Team last week and included former and current Atlanta Falcons linebacker Deion Jones.
quote:

Linebacker: Deion Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Draft position: Round 2, No. 52 overall.


Jones is one of the new breed of linebackers, where the emphasis is on speed and the ability to run toward the ball. He played in 15 games (13 starts) and finished with 108 tackles -- the most among rookies -- three picks for a league-high 165 return yards (with two returned for touchdowns) and a forced fumble.

And a huge strip fumble in the Super Bowl (of all places to be as a rookie). How did this guy sit on the bench at all at LSU? Guy is a gamer, no doubt.

Absolutely! And Les kept him on the bench for 3 years and Payton looked the other way on draft day. Mind boggling! Congrats Debo!
