Taiwan Jones   #7 RB

Height: 6-0   Weight: 195   Age: 29

Born: 7/26/1988 San Francisco , CA

College: Eastern Washington

Experience: 8th season

High School: Deer Valley HS [Antioch, CA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.125

Selected By: Oakland Raiders

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 28 (125)

Pick Analysis: Jones is an FCS-level prospect with the big-play ability to provide value as a backup running back but does not have the power, durability or ball security of an NFL starter. Is explosive and can take it the distance but doesn't have elite balance or elusiveness. Inconsistent reading and setting up blockers and locating backside holes but does a good job getting through seams in his vision. Could become a weapon in the passing game due to his speed, but his hands and ability to hold up in pass pro need to improve. Injury history should be investigated. Jones likely will hear his named called on Day 3.
