Chandler Jones, a defensive end prospect from the Syracuse Orange football program, is schedule to go through workouts Monday at the 2012 NFL Combine. Jones, a possible first-round selection, will try to improve his draft stock by going through defensive lineman drills, lifting heavy weights on the bench press and showing off his agility in both the shuttle run and 40-yard dash.
