Summary

Ronald Jones progressed past Peyton Barber in 2019 for a stint as the lead back for the Buccaneers. The former Round 2 NFL Draft selection mired through injury and sluggish play throughout 2018 before showing signs of promise last season. Jones has reconfigured his build and game with a bigger frame and more rugged style from his slash-and-accelerate style at USC. Jones had 11 games of double-digit carries but only one game of more than 100 yards. The lead back in a Tom Brady-led offense is a production fast track should Jones maintain the role, instead of Brady's ire in pass protection, fumbles, or assignments, through 2020. (April 28)

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones putting in some work (Thu May 14, 10:14 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones' limitations in the passing game have cost him playing time at various points throughout his two-year NFL career, but he is focusing his offseason work on running sharper routes and being more consistent with his hands. In addition, his workout coach also stated that Jones is 225 pounds.

Our View: Jones is looking for a breakout season as he's failed to impress that much in two seasons as a pro. He was better last year but still inconsistent and only produced one 100-yard game even though he had 11 games with double-digit carries. Rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn will push him for the top job in camp.
