    i have been high on this kid for a while now and he is now shown that he is healthy and skyrocketing up the draft.

    Given their interest in running backs, I'm sure they were.

    I believe Miami has setup a workout for him. I'm not sure if they have already done this or not. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Too scrawny for an NFL RB. He has the build of a WR.

    Too small. Played last year in the 170s. Its impressive that he kept in speed while packing on 15-20 pounds. I see some websites rated him as a second day prospect in which i don't get. He looks small on tape and runs upright. I would draft him on day 3 round 5 and after.

    I'd get him in round 4 only because I'd find it hard to pass on Carter or Chekwa in third, but if either is gone, Taiwan would be my pick in the third round.

    Guy has pretty good production for being at a small school..But he reminds me of Willis Mchagee prior to his knee injury.. He is shifty enough..No wasted movment..No dancing..Alot of speed..Short strider..Gets into the open field opens its up...Smells the endzone. Runs hard.. Good size too

    We might lose some Chinese fans if we draft him.

    He won't last till the 5th round. You cannot coach speed, and IMO he will be a late 3 or early round 4 pick. I would like too see Miami pick a combo of either Ingram, Leshore & jones. That would be sweet.

    if its gonna mean using a top 3 round pick let someone else have him...coming off of a broken foot and he has an elbow deformity...which could effect ball security

    Eastern Washington RB Taiwan Jones had a terrific workout according to our sources and unofficial results. Well, he also had a very good workout according to official results as well. Through league sources, JBS has obtained official results from his private workout where around 26 NFL teams attended his workout yesterday.


    Jones measured in at 6000, 196 pounds, and ran a 4.33 and 4.36 in the 40-yard dash. He also had a 1.58 10-yard, 2.54 20-yard, 39 1/2 inch vertical, 11'0 broad jump, 4.08 short short shuttle, 11.68 60-yard shuttle, 6.90 3-cone, and kept his bench press results from the Combine. His hand was 8 1/2 inches, arm was 29 5/8 inches, and he had a 71 1/8 wingspan.


    With those results we fully expect that he will go in the second or third round.
