Revisiting Jones’ pro day

Here’s a link to the post I filed on April 14 following the pro day of Taiwan Jones at Los Medanos College in Pittsburg.

Jones was at the 49ers pro day but did not work out. I asked him at the pro day if he’d visited to the Raiders and he said he hadn’t because he had gotten back late from a visit to Miami.

Jones’ agent, Doug Hendrickson, said a visit to the Raiders had never actually been scheduled, concerned over a perception that his client had failed to attend a scheduled visit.

    Haa! A Wide Receiver (didn’t look yet, but I’ll bet he was FAST!).

    If we lose Nnamdi odds are good we’ll get a pretty high compensatory pick next year.

    Any player that brings up Chris Johnson-Jamaal Charles references is worth a long look, that’s why Taiwan Jones had 25 teams present at his workout.

    How about just rolling with the guys in the secondary now.

    Such an overrated position anyway.

    I wish they would put as much “investment” in the linebacking, d-line etc…..

    Little depth at linebacker, only one NT on the roster, o-line thin, no depth at TE and a 29th ranked run defense to boot.

    Yet drafting 10000 cornerbacks and speedy running backs

    I wonder why he did not get drafted sooner?
