He will never return a KICKOFF or a punt FOR A TD and He will never get a kickoff past the opponents 35 in an SEC GAME. I made those predictions after the first game I saw him play 2 or 3 years ago. He will catch it ( which is nice) but surely we can
find a bigger threat who will catch it most of the time. Remember his offer list? I was hoping he would prove them wrong. I think He is a better receiver than running back or KR BECAUSE he does have good hands and a little quickness to get open for a split second. RUNNING back is his weakest area. Of course all the stats are pretty modest.

Just compare him to the other SEC KR and well who would you not trade him for?
