    He played at around 175 this past season and just recently got into the 190's. Can he really play at this new weight without losing any speed?

    Taiwan looks to bounce everything outside. He isn't going to be able to do that at the next level. The earliest I touch him, depending on his Pro Day, is 3rd Round (can really only go down; I have fairly high expectations of his Pro Day).

        He played at 175 during the season. He has since bulked up to 194 and is trying to hit 200 for his pro day.

        edit - didnt see that someone had posted the exact same thing two post above mine :/

            This video is private.
            Sorry about that.

            I've never encountered that before on youtube either. Is this guy top-secret or something?

            If he's anything like Jamaal Charles, he's gotta end up in Green Bay starting as our KR/PR.

              What are the dimensions of Chris Johnson? I always thought his legs were too frail to last in the NFL.

              CJ2K, Charles, Robert Smith, Marcus Allen.... some guys can last with chicken legs at RB, but it's pretty rare obviously. Then again, even MJD and Michael Turner get injuries to their tree-trunk legs.

                if someone puts up copyright material, it becomes private and you can only see it if you are the uploader.

                  Yeah i cant say why it was moved to private but the video was incredible.

                  The way he makes people miss in space reminds me of reggie bush at usc or jamaal charles in the pros. IT's like this run that reggie bush made against the cardinals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b2hrZ4ejHs he makes look routine! But he's built like jamaal charles but might be a hair slower. If i had to guess i'd say that he runs about a 4.38 or better.

                  They counted up all of his highlights and what it showed was something like

                  -averaged 7.7 yards a carry for his career

                  -had 12 200 yard rushing games

                  -had 5 plays of at least 80 yards or longer

                  -10 of 70 yards or longer
                  -16 of at least 60 yards or longer
                  -21 of at least 50 yards or longer
                  -36 of at least 32 yards or longer

                  -had a school record 96 yard TD run

                  but those were the statistical highlights that really popped out from the video.

                    Sounds like a great kick returner (potentially).

                      ...which would put him on the Dolphins' radar with their first pick.

                      See Ginn, Ted Jr.

                      lol.

                        He seems to be progressing well. said to have a 1.44 10 yard split and has "Jamaal Charles" type speed although I don't really need more convincing but I really like Jones.

                          bump - this guy works out in a couple weeks and they say he's gonna fly... like Chris Johnson type of 40 yard dash.

                            Top 100 pick in my mind.

                              Its being reported that he ran between 4.28 and 4.35 for his 40 yd dash, had a 40' vert and an 11" broad jump.

                              That is some ridiculous explosive ability!

                                This guy wasn't even on my radar until just recently. After his Pro-Day today, I read that he's now considered almost a lock for Day 2. I don't like how upright he seems to run from the highlights I've watched though.
