Looking back with: Kevin Jones (part 4)

Note from Will: This interview was completed about a week before it was announced that KJ was taking the job as Special Assistant to the Athletic Director.

For the final part of our interview with Kevin Jones, we talked about his post-Virginia Tech career in the NFL, the UFL, and beyond.

Jones was drafted by the Detroit Lions with the #30 pick in the first round of the 2004 draft. That fall, he rushed for 1,133 yards on 241 carries (4.7 ypc) for 5 touchdowns, and in so doing became only the third running back in franchise history to rush for 1,000+ yards in his rookie season, along with Billy Sims and Barry Sanders. He started 14 of 15 games and led the NFL in rushing in the second half of the season.
