Prospect Profile: Darnell Jones
Darnell Jones School: Mississippi State Ht: 5-10 Wt: 235 40: 4.82 Year: 5Sr Bio: Used on a rotational basis since his freshman campaign. Carried the ball only 7/48/1 as a senior, also adding 8 receptions. Positives: Little used lead fullback who has consistently displayed skills handling the ball. Accelerates into blocks, jolts defenders at the point or adjusts well to oncoming opponents. Patient, blocks with good vision and has a nasty attitude. Lowers shoulders into defenders and works hard to take them out. Quick out of the backfield into pass routes and a solid receiver with reliable hands. Negatives: Not big, dominant and has difficulty finishing blocks. Lacks a powerful lower body and not effective as a short yardage runner. Analysis: A decent athlete with solid size/speed numbers, Jones has been marginally productive on the college level though flashing ability. Must take his game to another level but should be given a look for a spot on the practice squad.
