The Miami Dolphins Select EWU RB Taiwan Jones - Entry 6

Taiwan Jones is officially on my man crush list after I watched some of his highlights at Eastern Washington University. He's 6'0, 194 pounds ran a 4.29 - 40 and can catch the ball out of the backfield. 

Taiwan Jones 2010 Season:
12 G | 221 Rush | 1742 Yds | 7.9 Yds/Rush | 14 TD | 24 Rec | 342 Yds | 3 TD
compare that to Alabama RB Mark Ingram's 2009 Season:

14 G | 271 Rush | 1658 Yds | 6.1 Yds/ Rush | 17 TD | 32 Rec | 334 Yds | 3 TD

In 2009 Ingram was the Heisman Trophy winner (I still think Ndamakong Suh should have won). In 2010 Jones surpassed all his rushing stats besides touchdowns in two less games. The kid can flat out play football. I understand Ingram played in the SEC where as Jones didn't even play at an FBS school. Still, you can't deny the talent Jones has. I'm not saying that an NFL team should take Jones over Ingram because I personally do believe that Ingram is the more NFL ready RB. Just don't be surprised in two or three years when Jones is running through guys at the next level.
