FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – After just two seasons, Falcons linebacker Deion Jones has become one of the NFL's rising stars.
43 NFL Insiders voted on a lineup of the best lineup of players under the age of 25 and Jones was named to the list as one of the tree linebackers. The other two were Myles Jack of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Reuben Foster of the San Francisco 49ers.
Jones earned his first Pro Bowl nod after a season in which he recorded 138 tackles, three interceptions and one sack. The Falcons selected Jones in the second round in the 2016 NFL Draft out of LSU and has started 29 games since.
