Jones is an early entry into the draft. He ran for 1,773 yards and 17 TDs as a junior.
Missed the 2015 season with torn ankle ligaments that were surgically repaired.
Had a DWI in February of 2016.
Eliot Wolf is coming down to talk about both Yancey and Jones.
No, he'll be the running back. These guys are complementary backs. At least as we stand here right now they are.
From what I've seen, Packers drafted Jones right about where the draftniks thought he would go.
He's spent some capital on lineman in previous drafts. He's obviously expecting something out of Spriggs and Murphy. Plus, he signed Evans.
Eliot Wolf: Yancey is big strong guy. Excellent hands. Good speed, ran 4.5, but plays faster than that.
Wolf on RBs: We were a little thin there last year. Both backs were solid (pass protecting). Jamal is more classic size/speed.
Wolf on Jones: Toughness and durability and production. He was a guy that didn't run small. He's 210 pounds. Height was easier to overlook.
Wolf on defense: I think we've added good guys, good players whether right away or in the future. We think these guys can help out a lot.
Wolf on Yancey: Really confident kid. Thought he was a player from Day One.
Wolf on OL: We're still looking. But we feel really good with the group. Adding Evans was awesome. He played at a really high level last year. He played in a pass happy offense like we are. He played really well.
Aaron Jones on conference call now.
Jones: My game, I think I have great balance, power and speed and I catch the ball out of the backfield.
Jones on receiving: I did it all.
Jones said he and Jamaal Williams have the same agent and know each other well.
Jones said he played on the basketball team as a freshman at UTEP.
Jones said he has a twin brother who played with him at UTEP and he said it was difficult for him to leave a year early.
Jones said he moved around a lot as an army kid, including time in Germany.
Wolf spoke to it. Said that Williams was more stout but that Jones had showed he could do it also.
OK, sorry about that delay. Ran out of battery and had to go find my cord.
Anybody I've failed to take off the board?
Thanks, but we're not done yet!
