    Great video. One of the best KO returns you will see. I see a playmaker here. He could provide a great hot route option on third downs when he isn't kept in the backfired to block. I see some Reggie Bush and Felix in him too. Lot more elusiveness than Tyson. I can see the "Start Murray" threads now.

    ^38 is highest vertical.

    And are they moving the kickoff line?

    Okay, I am going to admit, until I had seen that video the only thing I really liked about him was what I had read about him in blitz pickup. That actually made me feel better about this pick. Like what I saw catching the ball.

    The biggest positive on him is when he's coming out of the backfield and gets a swing pass most of the time he's going to get you a first down. Some of the time he's going to take off down the sideline.
