This just in NFL scouts, Taiwan Jones is fast

Yahoo Sports has jumped on board with the Taiwan Jones hype machine. EWU's star running back has just put in a VERY fast 40 time which could push him up on the draft board...

After serious work and rehab at Athletes Performance in Carson, California (a bit of which we caught on tape recently), Jones flew up to the Bay Area and put on a major show in front of what San Francisco 49ers running backs coach Tom Rathman told one observer was the biggest NFL attendance for a private workout he had ever seen. API's Travelle Gaines told Yahoo! Sports that Jones ran one 40 and times in the range of 4.27 to 4.35 on all stopwatches. We'll get the official times later today and pass them along (as well as an interview with Mr. Jones), but this could really push Jones up quite a few draft boards. Currently seen as a third- to fifth-round prospect, Jones may jump up a bit higher based on today.

In other news, WSU players were spotted eating hamburgers in Pullman.
