    Anyone know of anyone left who would be a good KR/PR guy for us? Maybe Boykin??

    I can't envision drafting anyone else that would make the roster at this point.

    There are alot of players left that could make this roster.

    As for returners, Joe Adams would be tops on the list, after him there are a few that are grouped together including Boykin.

    Do you follow the Cowboys?:)

    Charles would make it as a TE

    Miller and Gray would make it as a RB

    Boykin or Johnson would make it as CB's

    Cousins would make it as QB

    Bryan would make it as a TE

    Collie would make it as a LB

    lots of talent left. I can see at least 3 of our picks make the final 53 if we use them right.

    I'm talking strictly about returners. I don't think we'll go back to the CB well yet and I'm not convinced that they'd go WR and just stick with what we have.

    I am tired of watching them waste picks on special teams fodder. They need to keep drafting potential starters. Dez and Claiborne along with a few others can return punts, we need depth at NT, C and Id like to see another LB as well.

    Agree completely. With the direction the league is going with kicking, KR's may be a thing of the past in a few short years.

    Well I would only want a guy who could also play a position well like Adams or Boykin.

    Wouldn't want a guy like Skyler Green at all.

    Oh, I hope not, Avery... at this point, we're seriously screwed if Austin or Bryant had to miss any extended playing time... unless a couple of the youngsters step up big time, we need some help at WR...

    Ogletree, Harris, Holley, Radway, Holmes, it's going to pretty crowded. I could live without Otree and Holley though.

    Special teams play...both Carr and Connor will be added here. Both desire the 'additional duty.'

    Danny McCray is the 'new' Bill Bates. Then there is Barry Church and Alex Allbright that add a lot as well.

    As to returns, Dwayne Harris sparkled in limited duty. He averaged 28.9 yards a return. He may not hit the home run, but he produces at a high clip...at least on the early returns.

    As to punt return, there is still Felix Jones. His role here may expand, with Demarco Murray getting more reps at running back...

    Chris Rainey or Joe Adams as a returner

    Yeah, to me Harris, Radway and Holmes are the only legit contenders for playing time... that's a little thin...
