  • Taiwan Jones, RB, Eastern Washington

    I just looked him up after I saw Prince's ranking.
    Pretty impressive.
    Any other information on this guy?
    I feel like he could be the next Danny Woodhead type pick.

      This is Taiwan Jones.



      Not too concerned about the level of competition either. We've seen a bunch of successful RB's come out of small schools in the past.

        Youtube him. He's a pretty good back, could be a 4th-5th Round Pick. A back with pretty good size, speed, and overall ability. Put up big numbers this season albeit against low competition.

          I brought him up with Scott once and he put him in that range as well. He's got a lot of attractive qualities for a small school guy. Hope we get to see him at the combine posssibly.

            He's got a lot of competition at mid-round RB. He's gotta do something to stand out. Not a great RB class at the top but very very deep in quality backs that will contribute in some way. I'm sure he's one of them but to max out his draft potential he's gotta put on a show at the Combine.

                  I didn't know if I was more in-tuned with watching Jones or that red turf.

                  Looks like he's got good burst, excellent balance, not nearly as fast as he is quick, looks to catch the ball well, carries the ball in either hand. I've heard reports that he has battled the injury bug quite a bit. He could be an interesting pick up for a team that already has a big back and wants a complementary guy (Bucs, Rams, Browns).

                    He is very quick and fast but has had a ton of injury problems that have kept him off the field.

                      I need to see some more of Jones and there are some durability concerns. With that said, Josh Buchanan, who follows the small school prospects better than anyone is really high on the guy and that speaks volumes to me. I would say somewhere in that Rounds 3-5 range.

                        He's a weird guy. He doesn't look close to 200 at all. In the highlights he looks REALLY thin, but we'll see if he gets to the combine though. He looks like he could be a good return specialist at the very least. He could be a good 3rd down back, but i have concerns if he has any chance of doing anything in pass protection.

                            Real name.

                            Also, found this from an ESPN article as I had heard watching a game him and Best used to duke it out on the track.

                            http://espn.go.com/blog/pac10/tag/_/name/taiwan-jones

                            As a high school seniors, Jones ran against Best for the 100-meter title at the California Interscholastic Federation Championships. After they finished with the two best times in the preliminaries, Best won the title with a wind-aided time of 10.31. Jones settled for fourth with a 10.58 clocking, but during the year had a 10.53 time to his credit. Best's best was a 10.36 clocking.

                              Considering he is nearly 6' tall, 200 lbs is fairly thin.
