    i dont know. i would be hard pressed to draft someone who doesnt have a position. he is listed as a corner, but he is terrible in coverage. we've seen returners have great seasons and never have a huge impact for like two or three seasons aftrwards. daunta hall comes to mind.

    No one else had that much impact in the return game since then til now. Pacman has been close, but those called back for penalties have limited his would-be infamy. He's starting to get recognized, though.

    But props to Hester. That second one he did, that "Let's go" hop he did, showed a lot of confidence. He has success because he just sprints to his hole without hesitation. Roby and Wade just don't make that same decision and committ to it. What's interesting is you can see what a difference those fractional seconds make. 3 PR, 2 KO, 1 Missed FG return. Heh. Pacman seemed kind of close until tonight.

    I had the same argument when I found out we almost took this guy over White but after seeing what he can do and the impact he has on games he is well worth a 2nd round pick. I bet if he was on the Titans he would be playing a lot of offense similar to what we do with Pacman. Also, the Bears are getting him more involved in their dime packages on defense. The only argument for not taking him was we already had a great returner in Pacman.

    Well, taking him in the 2nd is really only justified if he turns into a starting cornerback. No telling if he will just yet.
