this incredible showing at his pro day definitely bumps him in to the top 5 RBs. He definitely needs to bulk up about 10 pounds but other than that he's arguably the most explosive/big play back in this draft.
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)

No Ryan Williams in your top 5?

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.

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.

Raider fans or whoever is in the loop with them, WHAT THE HELL ever happened with TAIWAN JONES?

Interesting note from your list of 5 above there, they all have gotten injuries to set them back... the RB position is so brutal.

Ryan Williams tore his patellar tendon on his FIRST EVER NFL carry, preseason game at Green Bay. Bad tackle by safety MD Jennings caused it.

But I always thought Taiwan Jones had the speed to do some things like Charles and CJ2K did if given the chance.

What's happened to Taiwan?

Yep. As a Darren McFadden owner in fantasy last year I followed the situation pretty closely, and it seemed like he was having ball security issues in practice to the point where they simply couldn't trust him even as a #3 back, which is why Reece and Stewart were the backs when Goodson and McFadden went down.

Huge disappointment, can't carry the ball inside at all and if he were to stay at RB he be a 3rd down guy at best. Moving to CB this off season(the position he originally played in college) to try and revamp his career. If he impresses he could make the roster since we need CB help...

Or if he gets cut, he could sign with the Packers and he'd probably push Dujuan Harris for carries at RB.

I'm kidding, I'm kidding! I think...

Thanks for the info fellas.
With all the time Dun DMC missed, Jones surely should have had his chances.

You could always just look at my posts from the early days of this thread. I pretty much called it.

He had some form of chances he had a preseason game but IIRC he fumbled the ball on his first play and got benched. After that he had a play here and a play there but I think fumbling was a major issue.

He was an animal on special teams and it wasn't working out at RB so will he will compete at DB, I guess. It hasn't been confirmed though. It was mentioned but we'll see in camp if its true.

Interesting to look back now at each of them... each of them have been held back because of injuries, some very serious.
This position is absolutely brutal and it's rare to get someone who's durable, healthy, against all the hits they take. And being short/stout is no deterrent in my opinion. I like the Ray Rice, MJD, DuJuan Harris types of builds.

It's also why I feel RB's have to be truly special (Peterson) in order to be very high draft picks. Especially in today's passing NFL.

There should be no RB's taken in this year's 1st Rd.
