Eastern Washington running back Taiwan Jones will hold a highly anticipated pro day workout on Thursday, April 14th. One of the more intriguing prospects in the draft, Jones is a small school mystery with big play capability.
The 6-foot, 195-pound speedster averaged a remarkable 7.7 yards per carry for his Eagles career and flashed the break-away speed that many believe will make him a home run threat at the next level. However, there are many question marks surrounding the durability of the California native.
While some will question his inferior level of play at the FCS level, the real concern with Jones surrounds his medical records. A broken left foot late in December prevented him from working out at the NFL Scouting Combine. He was also limited earlier in the season by an abdominal contusion that forced him to sit out a game.
