ROUND 5 PICK 182 - RB AARON JONES (UTEP)

Rusty ·
OVERVIEW Aaron and his twin brother, Alvin, were El Paso kids that weren't highly rated, so staying around home made sense. It's worked out well for UTEP, as Alvin has led the team in tackles the past two years while Aaron amassed over 4,000 rushing yards during his career. Aaron led the Miners with 811 yards as a freshman, scoring four times, even though he missed three games due to a broken rib. Healthy throughout 2014, he earned second-team All-Conference USA honors with 1,321 yards (5.5...

These last two picks are head scratchers. 7th rnd/UDFA types. They may work out but I don't see upside from these 5th round picks. A Mug Shot and unreliable pass blocker? Undersized? Fifth round, Really?

This kid could be really interesting in our offense. Got some breakaway speed and can go up and get a high ball too. Needs to bulk up.

First action. 1st half 4 for 12, 3 ypc w/ the TD 2nd half 9 for 37, 4.1 ypc - when they had the lead and were running more clock. Liked what I saw from him.

H5 you’d probably be able to comment on this as well with you having the all22 access but both Jones and Williams missed a few cut backs and could have had massive yards. Tough thing for rookies in their first major game action. Again just like the defense I like were these guys could take the team later in the year.

Aaron Jones is a very natural fit for GB offense. He's a pure shotgun RB. It's not a total surprise he looks as good as he does. I think Williams is a better pure RB. But Jones is well ahead of the curve because he's doing exactly what he did in college. Well, maybe running behind 5 guards is new. It's going to be fun watching these kids develop.

Jones may be the only runner on the roster that has the ability to prevent the negative play when blocking falls apart. It's the same talent that allows him to find the void on 3rd and short. He's gotta nose for gaps.

Simply a more decisive back. Something that, more often, Montgomery is not. Quick burst, hits the hole, moves forward. He deserves more carries.

Like him better as a runner than Williams. Hopefully he can work on improving his pass pro to get more snaps.

I don't recall any missed cut-backs. Jones left no yards on the field from what I recall. No negative runs and one for 0, when he slipped on the cut to go up field on the edge.

Whitehair is highly thought of by scouts and coaches....Kenny Clark abused him on Thursday. Fun to watch. Clark showed great promise last year as a rookie, he's worked his butt off and has taken a jump to another level this year. Draft and develop with a player who wants to be his best.

GB D has sunk a little in run D stats but doing better in pass D; thanks NitroDomUs. I think once the whole DL is back and healthy their run numbers will improve too. Hard to not be excited about the DL.

Jones seems to squeeze every little bit of yardage out of a run even when the blocking isn't there. Hopefully they'll get him more involved in the passing game.

I'll say it cuz I believe my eyes - Aaron Jones is the best RB on the team. I thought he was the best rookie in TC and can only guess that his pass pro is what kept him back. he's quicker and shiftier than the others, it jumps right out at ya.

1st half: 7 for 33, 4.7 avg, and the TD 2nd half: 12 for 92, 7.7 avg, and some big runs The confidence McCarthy and Rodgers had/have in him should make Packers fan excited for the future of the running game.

What will make him more dangerous is getting him involved more in the passing game. He was very good at that in college and has the ability. He and MM are still working him into the offense/playbook. I've only been able to see highlights so far but it is very exciting to see a RB in this offense that finds daylight as quickly as he does. Some of those runs, I couldn't even see the crease until he was already through it. Can't wait to see how he does vs. MIN D.

At the very least, Jones has shown that once Montgomery is back, he doesn't need to handle the full workload. One thing that has been pretty obvious since Montgomery has moved to RB is that he can get knocked out of games a little bit easier than some other starting RBs in the league. A top backup is necessary and Jones looks more than capable so far.

Jones and Monty. Both are needed. It seems pretty clear to me Monty is trying to "think like a RB" instead of just ripping off runs like he was last year. I'm sure there is a bunch of technique he is trying to implement and he will need work but the guy is a baller. As others have stated, Jones is used to the position. The two of them in tandem will make the run game a constant contributor.

Maybe not the right thread, but I'd like to see Mays get carries over Williams. Williams hasn't done anything with his opportunities. Obviously we are talking 3rd string here at this point, but if Monty isn't ready for MIN, lets see Mays as 2nd string.

Tdog posted: I'll say it cuz I believe my eyes - Aaron Jones is the best RB on the team. I thought he was the best rookie in TC ... I agree, Tdog . I try to keep in mind that although we have seen very little of Williams, even during the pre-season, the coaches see him every day, etc. etc., and I should trust their judgement. But he has done next to nothing when he has played, with largely the same blocking as Jones. The OL certainly haven't been road graders, but Jones is able to find...

Great listen. Pat Kirwan was the only guy that predicted GB would pick Aaron at 24 in 2005. Ron Turner told Aaron "we've got 3 QBs better than you but thanks for coming". No wonder he loves beating the Bears. Aaron played HS football on a field with a sign that read "Once a Viking. Always a Viking". 15 of the 23 players drafted before Aaron Rodgers in 2005 were out of football or let go by the team that drafted them when Aaron beat Pittsburgh for The Lombardi in 2010. Great post CT

With all the draft stuff going on, it was hard to try to elucidate just how impressed I was with the interviews and the work that Clemens did to piece this all together. I know that BM doesn't have alot of fans for some here based of his past work, but I do enjoy his show and stream it regularly as I work. He has some great guests. Glad some of you are picking up on the tidbits too.

Great stuff. Hasn't changed much. It's well-documented by now, of course, that Rodgers has a keen mind. Current and former teammates, coaches and scouts – even Rodgers, himself, in making sly allusions to his high SAT and Wonderlic test scores – they all say the quarterback is cerebral to the Nth degree. And those are NFL people that are outwitted. So how did an intellectually advanced teenager, especially in his football sense, deal with other high school kids who just didn't understand...
