NFL draft 2012: UFCs Jon Jones reacts to Patriots picking Chandler Jones

Syracuse University defensive end Chandler Jones, brother of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, was selected by the New England Patriots with pick number 21 in the first round at last night's (April 26, 2012) National Football League (NFL) Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York.

And "Bones," who shares his joy with the Ithaca Journal, couldn't be happier:

"Right now the kid is a broke college kid, but 24 hours from now he'll be more successful than me and Arthur put together."

Jones is referring to their older brother Arthur, a defensive end for the Baltimore Ravens, who also spends his downtime wrasslin' in the Ravens locker room. It should come as no surprise then, to learn they've been called "America's Most Athletic Family."

Find out why after the jump.
