    I've never heard of him either. I was just perusing Draft Countdown's return specialist rankings and he was #2 behind Trindon Holliday.

    4.25 speed. Only 5'7". Only 150 lbs. Reminds me of another dynamic Kansas State product, Darren Sproles.

    This kid can absolutely fly. Worth a late round flyer for his return prowess.

    After watching that video (twice) I wouldn't be shocked if Oakland took him with their first pick based on speed alone. :lol:

    They went Heyward-Bey over Crabtree. Anything's possible.

    They're going to get either Dunlap, Mays or Bruce Campbell. If they get Campbell, it'll be a great mistake for them (the kid can play, but they'd only get him because he's fast and strong. He's raw.)

    I'd say he's pretty good Go Cats!

    It was nice of him to run a punt back for a score tonight for the Redskins. I hadn't been feeling angry lately.

    Looks like the 'Skins got themselves a nice "little" weapon.

    And with Holliday on IR, looks like the Redskins picked the right little speedster.

    I wanted that little burner Banks. Also wanted Holliday. What happened to Trindon?

    Is this guy smaller than Roscoe Parrish? 5'7" seems way too small to be good at anything besides returns because he can hide really well behind blockers.

    Thumb injury IIRC. And he muffed a punt and a kickoff last week against N.O. I'm assuming the two are related.

    He was the guy returning punts against us in the Washington game.

    Tell me he wouldn't look good in green and gold...

    Drafted by the Red Skins and it's now week 5 he has just one reception for -5 yards . Good call.

    6 punt returns, 122 yards, 20.3 yards per return, long of 53.

    Yeah, I was totally stupid for wanting this guy. :frustrated:

    Here's the thing: HE IS NOT A RECEIVER.
    He is a RETURN SPECIALIST.

    Now you might be like Ted Thompson and like to just plug in a receiver (like a Jordy back there), but the great ones are usually return specialists like the Josh Cribbs and Devin Hesters, the former Dante Hall and Desmond Howards.

    Ted likes to carry 7 FBs and TEs on the roster so we never have room to carry a specialist return ace. But let me ask you this: How have our special teams been since Teddy was running the show his way?

    There are not that many coincidences.
