2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
As a rookie, there's no proven NFL track record for Jones, but as a prospect, Jones draws an interesting comparison. Jones admits that he models his game after Jamaal Charles and his college production is somewhat similar.

The noticeable difference in their careers is the usage in the passing game. Charles was a much more established receiver coming out of school, but neither was used a significant amount and both averaged just over 1 reception per game during their final season. The biggest disappointment, if it can even be considered one, is Jones's slight drop in rushing efficiency under 6.0 yards per carry when his rushing attempts finally eclipsed 200 attempts.

Jones currently has an ADP of RB27 in the 5th round and it appears that he's in line for 15 to 20 touches per game, according to camp reports. Tampa Bay had an average offensive line for run blocking, according to Football Outsiders. They had a 20% stuffed rate which ranked in the middle of the pack. Luckily, it appears Jones won't be stuck behind a poor offensive line, but he's not jumping into a situation similar to Ezekiel Elliott either. At his current draft price, he's among the safest bets to have consistent volume which makes him a good bet to exceed his draft position.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said with Peyton Barber not practicing, Ronald Jones "got the majority of everything today." (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Barber injured his ankle in last week's game. Jones would be in line to start in Week 8 against the Bengals should Barber not be able to go.
