Jones has a similar stylistic and size profile as Chris Johnson. Unlike Johnson, Jones lacked a strong understanding of blocking schemes and tried to bounce plays outside or attempt unrealistic cutbacks that he got away with at Eastern Washington. After a short stint as a cornerback, the Raiders put Jones back at RB last year. If he has worked at the mental side of the game and improved, he could surprise if called upon. Monitor his progress this summer.

Raiders | Oakland exploring options in return game (Thu Jun 16, 11:16 PM) - Oakland Raiders CB T.J. Carrie is currently the frontrunner to return punts and RB Taiwan Jones is the favorite to return kickoffs, special teams coordinator Brad Seely said, but WR Joe Hansley, RB DeAndre Washington and WR Jaydon Mickens have also been receiving reps.

Our View: Jones should be able to get the job done. However, we want to see Washington touch the ball as much as possible. He could push Latavius Murray for touches as a RB, but Washington has the electric skill set to be a good returner as well.
