"We got starting time out of both of them," Jones said, as reported Tuesday by The Dallas Morning News. "That's not enough, but those guys aren't NFL busts.
"We were proud to have (Felix Jones) with the No. 1 pick, and as late as last year, I was proud to have that No. 1 in Jenkins. But it is five years down the road now."
Jones, who had a career year in 2010 with 800 rushing yards and 450 receiving yards, remains unsigned. He constantly was bothered by injuries on the Cowboys.
Both players had their moments with the Cowboys, but most general managers would like more from two first-rounders in what should be the prime of their careers. Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was selected two picks after Jones. Matt Forte and Ray Rice were taken in the second round in 2008.
