A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that Eastern Washington running back Taiwan Jones ran a 4.33 forty time at his individual Pro Day Thursday.
NFL scouts routinely add time to Pro Day forty-yard dashes based on perceived speed of surface. It’s still an impressive number, and will generate plenty of attention around the league.
The source also tells Florio that 25 teams were represented at the workout.
Per various other reports, Jones posted an 11-foot broad jump and 39 1/2-inch vertical. So his explosiveness doesn’t just show up in a straight line on the track.
Jones is a projected second- to third-round pick.
