Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver Cyrus Jones is headed to the New England Patriots.

The Pats used their first pick of the draft - the No. 60 overall selection in the second round on the gifted Alabama defensive back. Jones joins Reggie Ragland, A'Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed as fellow 'Bama second round selections this year and is the fifth player from the Tide to be drafted after center Ryan Kelly was taken in the first round by the Indianapolis Colts.

Jones also joins a star-studded group featuring Landon Collins, HaHa Clinton-Dix, Vinnie Sunseri, Dee Milliner, Dre Kirkpatrick, and Mark Barron as past Alabama DB's to be taken in the NFL Draft.

Best of luck to Cyrus Jones in New England!
