What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Jones has been an efficient, productive runner over his 2 seasons as the clear backfield leader in Green Bay. The Packers’ financial commitment to him this spring shows they believe he’s a key to the offense, which should keep his volume up. Shedding Jamaal Williams in favor of AJ Dillon ascending to the #2 role brings uncertainty, but Dillon comes with less proof as a receiving option than Williams.
Of course, the greatest unknown remains the Aaron Rodgers situation. Rodgers’ return would obviously be good news for the entire offense. His departure? Well, since the start of 2008, we’ve only seen 18 of 190 regular-season Packers games without Rodgers involved. And his replacement would be a 2nd-year QB who got no work after arriving in Round 1 of last year’s draft. So we really don’t know what the impact would be.
If Rodgers remains, Jones looks good in the 2nd half of Round 1. If Rodgers goes (or just sits), then the risk obviously increases.
