    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.

    Ryan Williams is too inconsistent and injury prone in my opinion. His production dropped big time and he fumbles way too much. Could be a steal though, but from a potential stand point I have him as a 4th/5th rounder.
    - I also have Daniel Thomas and Jordan Todman ranked higher than him.

    Jones has some serious flaws to his game, he takes every carry to the outside and is going to have to learn how to run between the tackles, he is also non existent as a blocker and you cannot be a starter in the NFL if you cannot pass block.
    Of course, he is a threat to go the distance on every carry so if he can make the above 2 adjustments and stay healthy, he could be special but he has a lot of learning to do. Late 3rd or early 4th rounder.

    1) Mark Ingram (20-30)
    2) Kendall Hunter (early 2nd)
    3) Mikel Leshoure (early 2nd)
    4) DeMarco Murray (early 3rd)
    5) Taiwan Jones (late 3rd)

    ...and the 3rd...unless he thinks Jones is going in Round 1.

    Day 2 is the 2nd Round...

    Durability is the major question here. It's impossible to predict guys like this. They have the tools to be impact pro players but there's no way of knowing whether or not they have the work ethic and mental makeup to be a pro athlete. You just can't teach that speed though.

    4.28-4.35 and he had a boot on his broken foot only a month ago.

    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!

    Top 100 pick in my mind.

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

    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.
