RB Taiwan Jones, from Eastern Washington. He is listed at 5-foot-11 & 205-pounds reportedly runs the forty in 4.40 and appears to be an above average receiver out of the backfield evident by his 64 receptions for 903-yards and 7 touchdowns over his two seasons as a starter. His seems to be an elusive runner with a second gear in the open field and can also run between the tackles. He gained 3,060 yards on 383 carries and 29 touchdowns in 31 games. He also is a solid special teams player as a gunner and returner as he amassed 56 special teams tackles, 2 blocked kicks and 1,134 yards on 50 kick returns and 1 touchdown. He is projected to be a third day pick that has good vision, hands, body lean, balance and can also be a special teams player and a solid changes of pace back.

I'm not trying to jack your thread, I just want to add another name to it. He's probably either going to go somewhere between round 6-undrafted depending on how he runs, but this guy reminds me A LOT of Pierre Thomas.

Chad Spann:

He's not tall (probably close to 5-8 than 5-9) and he doesn't have breakaway speed, but he runs HARD and he produces.

There's some fluff at the start of this, but trust me it picks up at 1:05:

Future308 - I actually like Spann as well, and he has been very productive at Northern Illinois. He is closer to 5-foot-7, but is a thick back at 200-pounds and runs faster then one might think, as it's been reported he is around the 4.47 mark in the forty. He is not as polished a receiver as Jones, but Spann is a player who has ran hard the last two seasons and has a knack for scoring as he has produced a total of 42 touchdowns (41 rushing & 1 receiving) in 09 & 10. Has put up some gaudy rushing numbers over the past two years as well averaging 7.20 yards per carry on 337 carries for a total of 2,426 yards.

Waddup Yucc, on top of your game as usual. Hey, I was up diggin all night too an I found a late round sleeper that I shuffled in my mock ( lol yea I switched up already, just because the players I feel are a lock have to be taken a tad early since we draft mid late ). Dion Lewis was college footballs leading rushing in 09 with 1700+ yards. He's undersized but has great RB instincts. If his 40 time surprises us with a 4.40 then his projection round could move up a spot from the 5th to the 4th. I slid him in the 4th round of my mock where Noel Devine is, so at clock time who evers available we could possibly go with. Plus I was starting to feel some1 else would value Devines specialists skills an take him a round early on us.

Lombardi - Lewis will be in interesting prospect like Spann and Jones. But like most members on the forum I am like everyone else. I watch college football and read a ton of scouting reports and watch YOUTUBE clips of players and just try and match what I have read and seen in games or clips and what has been written about players, then guesstimate if they would fit into the current schemes the Bucs run.

Jones' shifty feet, cut on a dime skills and ability to eat up pursuit angles is a thing of beauty.

The Bucs aren't drafting a RB.....they'll just snatch one from another team, like they did with Blount.

Haven't thought about it that way..... but if that's the case, we can really mix it up now! +1, I'm with it..... especially if he's only 22 yrs old.

I like what I see here. He makes a lot of things happen on his own, which is good to see given that he plays at a D 1-AA school. He would be a great late round project.

Watching that Taiwan Jones video, I'm reminded of another #22...running style and build appears similar to Matt Forte of the Bears...just enough juke and speed to be elusive and good hands coming out of the backfield. Would be interested if 3rd day pick...
