Biography: Saw action with the starting unit since his freshman season. Senior totals included 57 attempts/458 yards/3 TDs after he posted 52/353/4 as a junior. Totaled 23 receptions in college.
Positives: Short, stout ballcarrier who is best in a straight line. Runs hard, keeps the play inbounds and drives to pick up as much yardage as possible. Works to stays square as a blocker and seals defenders from the action. Bends his knees and breaks down well.
Negatives: Does not have the speed to run to daylight. Shows a minimal burst carrying the ball. Not a creative or elusive runner.
Analysis: Jones is a ballcarrier who did the little things well on the college level but lacks the necessary physical skills to be an NFL player. Could make it as a fifth running back if he produces on special teams.
