When it comes to linebackers in the 2016 NFL Draft, LSU Tigers standout Deion Jones is trending in the right direction. Jones has been generating plenty of interest from teams around the league and nearly a dozen have visits lined up.
In total, Jones has 11 visits currently scheduled or completed.
Rand Getlin passed along the news, specifically mentioning a handful of names including the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.

Jones has also visited with the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, while private workouts are scheduled with the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers.
With the growing interest in Jones, who is incredibly athletic for the position, it would be a surprise if he is not selected within the first three rounds of the draft later this month.
