GREG JONES: Florida State, 6014 250 4.55. A big back with thick legs and a very muscular upper body. Was having an excellent season as a first year starter in ’02 before suffering a serious knee injury late in the year. Returned to action as a senior but was not as effective as he had been previously. A patient, instinctive runner. A little deliberate at times, but he reads blocks well and has quick feet for a back his size. Does a good job of cutting laterally and finding holes. Dances a little too much at times. Lacks breakaway speed but he has some ability to bounces plays wide and make defenders miss. Physical runner with good lean. Lowers his pads nicely on contact and delivers a blow. Strong legged. Can run over smaller defenders when he gets into the secondary. Above average blocker. Strikes with good knee bend. Adjusts well in pass protection. Shows good balance. Has some difficulties in the passing game. Fights the ball a bit. Needs improvement as a route runner. Could project as a fullback. A quality back when healthy — injury background is a concern.
