2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about RONALD JONES II: Southern Cal, 5110 205 4.69. Third year junior from McKinney, TX who has led USC in rushing each of the past three seasons. First-team All Pac 12 in 2017, second-team in 2016. Leaves the Trojans’ program as the number five all-time leading rusher. Former track athlete with easy speed and burst. He can go from 0 to 60 with just a few steps but also has the ability to stop and cut at the snap of a finger. Will move like he is on ice skates. Just an easy glider, smooth but incredibly efficient footwork along with top tier balance. Runs with the forward lean that enables him to almost always fall forward. When called upon to do so, Jones can lower his shoulder and fight for the tough, physical inside yards. Even though the desire to run tough is there, he is in need of more bulk and strength. He won’t move many piles and if an NFL linebacker can really square him up, he will get tossed backward. Struggles as a blocker to both recognize delayed blitzes and sustain his contact with the defender. Initial impact is average at best and he doesn’t stick. Was rarely used as a pass catcher throughout his career. Overall he is an electric back with big time explosion and playmaking ability. Will be best suited for an offense that is looking to change up the pace of the game away from a between the tackles bulldozer. 2017 stats: 1550 yds, 5.9 ypc, 19 TD, 14 rec, 187 yds, 1 TD. OSR:21/29. Second/third round. (A-31 1/8, H-8 3/4, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
