Devin Hester is out of the question

As the blurb on rotoworld states, $4MM for a 31 year old return specialist is laughable. He won't get half that amount.

Granted he was the best return man in 2013, but that's all he brings to the table.  He is a poor man's Ginn (for our purposes).vector-illustration-of-cool_small.jpg

He is a better returner and equal WR...

Ginn is Hester Lite

i'd pay him 2-3m a year just to take over ginn's role. he's invaluable as a returner and he'd fill a WR position that wouldn't see the field all that much anyway... paying for consistently good field position is well worth it IMO, especially if you're already worried about your offense's ability to move up and down the field.

Agreed. Field position is going to be huge for us this season and our lack of playmakers on offense could be hidden by finding a valuable return guy.

Not equal at receiving last year.  He's probably been experimented with as a receiver more than Ginn without breaking through like Ginn showed he could last year. Plus, he's past his prime.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
