    Top 5 under-the-radar impact guys entering the NFL:

    Five under-the-radar rookies in 2018

    1. Ronald Jones, RB, Buccaneers (Round 2, Pick 6): This one is a little more obvious. Jones comes onto a depth chart whose leading returning rusher amassed less than 400 yards in 2017. He will absolutely make an impact from Day 1. However, Tampa Bay was fortunate to get him in the second round as he was being discussed much higher than this throughout the draft . . .

    Great situation for RoJo. Been a while since SC has had a big-time back in the nfl.

    Pick #4 is also a RB, a 6th-round pick of the Rams. Wonder what this means for Justin Davis?

    I watch recorded USC games like few others. But... when we got that running backs coach (WTFWHN?) he changed Ronald. Really really changed him.

    Most of his yards he got on his own. The offensive scheme didn't do him any favors. He also got big without losing speed. This dude should do good in the NFL.

    I disagree. He did do a lot on his own, but many games he was able to run through wide open holes (Washington state long run, Arizona, ASU, etc).

    Just because the o-line didn’t consistently play great doesn’t mean they never played great.

    Yeah . . . an RB can't run for 1550+ yards on his own.

    The OLine as a unit could have been better many times.

    But they, nor the scheme, were terrible.

    I don't see a lot of holes. I see a lot of running into the line and the speed to get out. This is how I remember it.





    See what they do with Saquon Barkley:



    You don't know how Barkley is getting the ball. With Jones, you pretty much know it's coming straight at you.
