Overview:

Jones had a great career at UTEP, with 658 rushes, for 4114 rushing yards, 33 rushing touchdowns, along with 71 catches, for 646 receiving yards, and 7 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he also had good speed, he is a good blocking back, and an explosive playmaker. He is also tough to take down, and he does a good job of making defenders miss. He has had off the field issues in the past, and gets stuffed at times. With that said, I view Jones a day 3 pick, likely in the mid round area.
