Rookie Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones has struggled in pass protection early in training camp according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Stroud also says  Jones' "hands need to get softer," a deficiency that is not really easy to overcome. A second-round pick out of USC, Jones was rarely used as a receiver in both high school and college and caught only 32 passes in 40 games while at USC.   He was also inconsistent in blitz pickup on college tape.  Peyton Barber is still the nominal starter in the backfield for the Bucs as they start preseason action with veteran Charles Sims ready to come in on third downs but the team clearly hopes that Jones will surpass them both.  He should see plenty of game action during August.
