NFL News: Christian Jones Looks Like a Steal for Bears

Following a stellar career at Florida State, Christian Jones was projected to go as high as the 2nd or 3rd round in the NFL Draftbut things did not go as planned for the former Seminole star. Jones went undrafted and eventually signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.

Jones stock plummeted after it was revealed that he had a diluted drug test during the NFL Combine.

But now, at Bears training camp, Jones is standing out with his athletic play at linebacker. Jones has looked so good, that it would be rather shocking if he did not land on the 53-man roster.

After one week of training camp, Jones has climbed all the way up to the second team on the depth chart, and appears to be in the good graces of head coach Marc Trestman.

Hes showing he deserves the opportunity to work and practice, and its fun to see because hes coming from a long way to put himself in this position, Trestman said. The athleticism is there. The explosiveness is there. The burst is there. The physicality is there. Its evident that hell play that way. Its just the learning process; theres just so much for a young guy to know. Marc Trestman, ESPN Chicago.

If Jones continues to flash with his impressive play, the Bears will make out like bandits, acquiring Jones as an undrafted free agent.
