BIOGRAPHY: Syracuse transfer who posted 82/407/2 in nine games last season. Posted a career-best 705 yards rushing as a junior.

POSITIVES: Jones has shown flashes of ability the past two years, yet he comes off a slightly disappointing senior season. He'll be brought into a camp this summer with a chance to make it as a team�s fourth back.

NEGATIVES: One-speed back, cannot make defenders miss or create yardage. Minimally productive catching the ball out of the backfield.

ANALYSIS: Well-sized ball-carrier best on the inside. Runs hard on the inside, keeps his feet moving up the field and falls forward when tackled, picking up the extra yardage. Picks up yardage off initial contact and works hard in all aspects.

PROJECTION: FA
