Jones not prepared for press conference

The Sports Xchange

---Chandler Jones met the press in New England for the first time on Friday, but forgot one key item - his clothes.

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

--Third-round pick Jake Bequette is the eighth defensive player from the SEC on the Patriots' roster and the second one (Hightower) selected in the 2012 draft.

--Coach Bill Belichick on trading a second-round pick for a third- and fifth-round selection (the former which was used to select Bequette): "Some trades looked better than others when you put them up against each other, but in all honesty, the picks are moving pretty quickly and we kind of focus more on what the opportunities were rather than sit around and analyze each one."

"It happens so fast. It's just one big blur, and then it's over. I just love it. It's just amazing. Maybe I got a screw loose." -- Sixth-round draft pick Nate Ebner on his excitement for returning kicks and playing special teams.
