RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Raiders will attempt to utilize Jones' speed on the defensive side of the ball, though the transition figures to take a while and IDP relevance seems highly unlikely.
Jones received just 18 touches as a rookie last year, so itís hard to tell what type of player heíll be in the NFL. He certainly looks electric and like a playmaker, but heís also wiry for someone 6-0 and projects best in a complementary role. Thereís perceived upside here in a run-heavy system with Michael Bush gone and starter Darren McFadden as injury prone as they come, but if McFadden went down, donít be surprised if Mike Goodson were to get the majority of carries, leaving Jones as the change-of-pace back.
Jones was drafted by the Raiders in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He's another speed guy for the Raiders, but he'll struggle to get many touches as long as Darren McFadden and Michael Bush are healthy.
