Taiwan Jones is one of the top small school players in this years draft. His speed and quickness is simply amazing and he has the ability to turn any play into a touchdown. He’s very skinny though so he’ll have to bulk up which may take away from his speed. If he manages to stay healthy in the NFL, he’ll be a game breaker, but that’s a big IF. He reminds me of Jerious Norwood.
