He was the Cowboys' top draft pick.
Jones averaged seven yards per carry for the Razorbacks.
That's the second-highest average in college football history.
The Razorbacks are a big deal in Arkansas.
The Cowboys are a big deal nationwide.
How has Felix Jones' life changed since draft day?
"Things have changed, like the excitement of the game and how passionate people are about this team," Jones said. "It's a blessing I have an opportunity to play for this type of team."
"This is America's team," Jones continued. "I'm loving every minute of it."
"Felix is a good runner and he's also a good receiver," coach Wade Phillips said. "We'll be able to use his a lot in the passing game."
"This is fun, this is football," Jones said. "I'm enjoying it."
