The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their entire eight-member 2018 draft class under contract after signing running back Ronald Jones to a deal, the team announced Thursday.

Jones, who was one of Tampa Bay’s three second-round picks, was chosen out of USC with the 38th overall selection.

The 5-foot-11, 208-pound Jones rushed for 1,550 yards and 19 touchdowns with the Trojans last season. He was named as a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, given annually to the top running back in the country.

Jones carried the ball 591 times for 3,619 yards and 39 touchdowns while adding 32 receptions for 301 yards and three scores during his three seasons at USC.
