    Taiwan Jones ran 4.32 at workout

    Eastern Washington RB Taiwan Jones ran the forty-yard dash at 4.32 - 4.35 seconds at Thursday's Pro Day workout.

    Jones reportedly clocked between 4.29 and 4.35 on all stopwatches. It's an emphatic sign that he's fully recovered from late-season foot surgery. Checking in at 6'1", 196 pounds with "nary an ounce of body fat," Jones also recorded an impressive 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot broad jump -- just five inches short of the record. Jones is the most explosive athlete in this year's running back class. Thursday's performance, in front of representatives from 26 teams, should lock him into the draft's second day. His stock is skyrocketing.
    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.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    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.
