I watched Jones a lot at FSU. He's one of my favorite players. Beyond the typical scouting report that he is a big bruising back, I'd like to share the info that he tore his ACL during his junior year and never looked the same senior year. He probably ran in the mid 4.5's (good for a 250 pounder) prior to getting hurt and never got the explosiveness back his last year at FSU. That showed at combines for sure.
I've always thought that Greg has a superb combination of size and decent enough speed (certainly faster than Bettis) to be a great running back in the NFL. Perhaps that's because I'm a bit of a homer, but if he's truly recovered, I'd watch out.
I'm not sure I'd pick him up unless I owned Taylor or had a very expendable spot. Taylor's injury doesn't look too serious (though with him, you never know) and JAX has a bye this coming week.
"The son of Bobby Bowden once again proved he's as predictable as a Julia Roberts' movie.
And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
