Jones is using every available chance during the early days of training camp to work on his skills in the passing game. A goal of his from the time last season ended was to make himself a more well-rounded running back, and with the opportunities he’s sensing will come his way in new Head Coach Matt LaFleur’s offense, both urgency and incentive exist.
“I’ve done a lot of work,” Jones said after the Packers’ second practice of training camp Friday. “If he’s going to be putting me out there at wide receiver or using me in different ways in the pass game, I have to be ready. I’m confident in my hands. I’m going to continue to work them and be ready for when my number’s called.
It's pretty clear that Aaron Jones is the Packers' lead back this season and we are all here for it. He's currently being a bit undervalued in early drafts, as he's coming off the board in the late-third round as RB17, while 4for4's John Paulson has him ranked at RB14 with 227 projected PPR points.
