Default Tony Jones, Jr. declares for draft

Interesting. Would have been nice to have him one more year. As someone else said in another thread - thunder and lightning would have been fun next year.

I hope he's smart because this is highly unlikely to be a long term job.

Obviously sees a window of opportunity. He can always come back and finish school if he doesn't have his degree. Would've been nice to have him back though.

Tony has his degree.

Not surprised. Probably wonít be drafted but can help a team in a pinch as an I drafted free agent. Iím sure BK doesnít mind based on the running backs he has coming back. We need the room.

We have a lot of running back numbers and I dont know that Tony's stock was changing with another year. Wouldve been nice to see him paired with Tyree but we have capable guys to replace him. Notably Smith cbo and William's I'd like to see more of

I agree. I wish Tony the best of luck making it in the NFL.

I donít get it, if Adams didnít get drafted, he has zero chance.

I do too. He made some big plays in his career and am sure he will be signed as an undrafted free agent and make a team's practice squad at the least. Very adept at pass blocking and NFL teams demand that in a back.

I like him, but a 5th year would have done him good...he is not ready yet...where do these kids get their advice from...

He has his degree and is not getting any faster. But an NFL team would never have been his likely employer.

Wish Tony Jones Jr the best! We will miss him next year. We really need a back to step up next year. Jones was the best this year when healthy. I want to give Jahmir Smith a real chance now. Will be an intriguing spring/fall camp for this group going into 20.
