Avg. Draft Position: 54.9

In a 12 team draft, that's the 5th round. Screw that. He had one good game against Seattle in 2001 and two in 2002 against Green Bay and Houston. This is what you're willing to pay a 5th round price for?

Actually you know what... Cornbread is in my league... Please encourage him to draft TJ as early as possible.

Tell ya what - I agree in thinking that the Bears shouldnt have signed him. I also think Atrain is just fine, but the truth is they are switching offensive schemes this yr, and the coaches thought Jones abilities fit their needs so much better that they offered him a 4 yr deal. To me, thats a pretty strong endorsement of who the feature RB will be.
I also am led to believe that he really hasent had too much opportunity to showcase his skills in ARI. I think thats a pretty fair assesment.
In TB last yr - in a West Coast offense - he had his best yr while averaging 4.6 ypc. Possibly more importantly - 7.5 ypreception with an average yac of 7.8 - thats the definition of a west coast RB. Thats not too shabby.
Now a proven successful offensive coach comes to CHI and brings with him a huge upgrade in their offensive line and a hand-picked RB. Now, you may think I'm off my rocker, but even in the 5th rd, is he value? Is it possible Thomas Jones breaks out and becomes a top 20 RB? Dont forget he was the 7th overall pick in the 2000 draft.

When I said Id draft him in the 7th - thats when I was hoping he'd go.

KG - I know you've been eyeing him - you can have him. I think you may need all the help you can get. :-b

Are you kidding me... I will give you hands and patience but priest holmes is by far one of the 3 slowest starting tailbacks in the league, T Jones is 100x faster and his cutbacks are what hes known for. He is an extremely athletic runningback... priest just sits "patiently" behind what his line will give him. Im not saying thats bad but athletically they are not even in the same class.

I agree, after watching Priest a number of games last year, he seems to lack the ability to break away as he was once able to do. He uses his O-line very well, enabling him to get 5-10 yd gains, but I seldom saw him break one, even though he was often in the open field. Also, Priest backed up Lewis only in the year 2000. In 1998 he was the starter and in 1999 he was supplanted by Eric Rhett, surely not a Hall-of-Fame back.

you might be a little misled by the title of this post Adlaw - this really isnt about which RB will be better, its more of a thread talking about the chances of T.Jones. Read the thread and let us know what you think about him.
