Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is slotted fourth among the NFL's RBs in ESPN's fantasy football rankings.

There are some concerns surrounding Jones-Drew's fantasy prospects, though:

Jones-Drew's average draft position on NFL.com is the second round (11.92), but I wouldn't be shocked if he falls into the later stages of that round. I've even seen him fall into the third round in some mock drafts. At this point, it depends on how much of a risk you're willing to take and where you're willing to take it. If you don't buy into the trend of holdout running backs (Ex. Chris Johnson, Steven Jackson, Larry Johnson) getting hurt or experiencing a decrease in numbers, then Jones-Drew is worth a first- or second-round pick.

Elsewhere in ESPN's rankings, Tampa Bay's Doug Martin checks in at No. 33, while LeGarrette Blount is No. 46. The Dolphins' Reggie Bush checks in at No. 22.
