PR/KR question

With Ginn gone to Arizona, Captain gone to Minnesota, Smitty gone to Bmore - who will return punts and kickoffs for us this year?

Underwood, Barner, Draft pick???

Do we resign Armanti Edwards. .....

It was nice not having to hold your breath every time we received a kick. What do you say

Still have Pilarius  on the team I think . I am sure Barner will get a looks as well.

Would think Pilares / barner to start, but I'm hoping that one of our picks is a WR that can also return kicks. One big tall receiver like robinson or latimer and one short shifty guy like Ellington or Campanero. Hopefully the short shifty guys becomes our returner. That is a hidden "starting position" that we need filled.

First of all you included Smith as a kick return option...........

 

Secondly, I HATED Pilares at kick return.  He does't have elite agility and quickness that returners need.  I know, I know...he returned one in Detroit.

 

Just from sheer speed alone, I would say that Underwood would be the best option currently.

"Byron Bell" he is left handed--> and from my 60yrs of football research all left handed individuals are hall of fame left tackle,  KR and PR.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
