Who are the most dangerous "Return Men" in the Draft, Guy like Devin Hester,Josh Cribbs,Desean Jackson,and Percy Harvin.

A couple guys I like are: Javier Arenas,Jacoby Ford, and Dez Bryant.

I dont know much about these guys and would appreciate scouting reports and/or you personal opinions.

He is very good but he is going to be a first round pick.

I'm hoping more in the range of 4th-7th round.

^^^ I like the list above, but i would like to add one guy who nobody really has as a return man for some reason.

I think that Dexter McCluster would be a great return man, he just didn't return this year or last because he was too important to the Rebels Offense and if they lost him they would be down in the dumps in terms of offensive production. He has the obvious quickness, speed and open field vision to be a perfect return man in the NFL and IMO would be a good slot receiver.

Holliday's at worst the second fastest man ever to play major football (Jeff Demps is the only argument), James is a 4 yr return man who lacks elite speed but has perhaps the best lateral mobility of any guy in the draft- he's a running back version of Dante Hall.

Andre Roberts(Citadel)
Quote:
Was a Walter Payton Award Canidate

01/27/2010
- Senior Bowl, Tuesday: A receiver on the rise is Roberts. Measuring in at 5-11, 192 pounds was a bit of a surprise, as scouts expected him to be closer to 5-10, 180. His quickness has not been hurt by the added weight, and his routes were outstanding. Roberts has the feet to run effective comeback routes, the suddenness to free himself on slants, and the vertical to leap up and grab a high pass on the sideline. Typically one FCS receiver is selected in the top 100, and it looks like Roberts fits that ball in the 2010 draft-Rob Rang and Chad Reuter

Release: Good straight-line speed and superior quickness. Quick first step off the line, and separates from defenders after a cut or once past the second level with great acceleration. Will need to learn how to beat the jam from pro corners, but won't back away from the challenge.

Darius Marshall(Marshall)
Quote:
01/11/2010 - Marshall running back Darius Marshall was back in Huntington for school Monday, his father in Milledgeville, Ga., said amid reports that he'll leave early for the NFL draft. ESPN.com's Joe Schad said on his Twitter account Monday evening that "Marshall RB Darius Marshall told me he will enter the next NFL draft." Marshall's father referred the Gazette to his son's cell phone later Monday night, which Marshall did not immediately answer. If Marshall does indeed opt for the draft after his junior season, the Thundering Herd will lose the school's No. 7 rusher of all-time. He has rushed for 2,857 yards in his three seasons, including 1,131 in just 10 games in 2009 and 1,095 in a full slate of games in 2008. He would finish just 125 behind Ahmad Bradshaw, the Herd's leader in its Division I-A/FCS era, from 1997 to the present. Bradshaw himself left a season early for the pros, where he earned a Super Bowl ring, 1,323 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns for the New York Giants. Marshall is listed at 5-foot-10, an inch taller than Bradshaw, but probably isn't as stocky at 190 pounds, and might not be as quick. In light of his 2009 arrest on misdemeanor marijuana charges, Marshall may suffer the same "flag" on his character that pushed Bradshaw all the way to the seventh round, in the final 10 picks. Bradshaw had enough trouble with the law to get him released from his scholarship at Virginia, and he had a run-in at Marshall. He later served jail time in southwest Virginia for violating his probation that was granted in a juvenile case. The change in coaches ultimately may have played a role in Marshall's decision. - Doug Smock, The Charleston Gazette
12/26/2009 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: RB Darius Marshall - The junior ranks 13th nationally with 117.1 rushing yards per game and ninth with 172.6 all-purpose yards per game. He ranks seventh in school history with 2,780 yards and needs 121 to pass John Zontini (1931-34) for sixth place.

LaMarcus Coker(Hampton)
Quote:
01/18/2010 - 2009 ALL-MEAC FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM: RB LaMarcus Coker Sr. Hampton Nashville, Tenn., has been selected First-Team All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for the 2009 college football season as voted on by the MEAC head football coaches and sports information directors. Senior LaMarcus Coker (Nashville, Tenn.) earned First Team honors after becoming the first Pirate to rush for 1,000 yards in a season since Alonzo Coleman in 2006. Coker ran for 1,027 yards and six touchdowns on the season to lead the MEAC, recording six 100-yard rushing games in the process. Coker ran for a career-high 135 yards against Delaware State, amidst a streak in which Coker ran for 100 yards or more in four straight games. Coker, who averaged 5.2 yards per carry, also scored two touchdowns in a 37-0 shutout over Howard. He was also second in the MEAC in all-purpose yards, gaining 1,537 total yards on the season - an average of 139.7 per game - thanks to 202 receiving yards and 308 kick-return yards. - Hampton football

There's plenty listed in here already. There should be a few sites that talk about returners in the upcoming draft.


The "pure" returning specialists are:

Trindon Holliday
Brandon Banks
LeTroy Vann


All of them have tremendous speed and are all pretty small.

There's every possibility a team could reach for one of those guys in the 5th, but if not, the 3 "pure" returners will most likely be taken in either 6th or 7th round right now. Maybe the 5th if the combines come out looking great for any of them.

Too bad only Banks is going to the combine. And none of them sans Holliday would impress at all. Vann is a 4.5 guy. Much like Arenas. But he has elite quickness.

Javier Arenas, Perrish Cox and C.J. Spiller are the top of the line. I like LeRoy Vann as a sleeper return man. Holliday isn't a good return man. He drops a lot of kicks. I'm not a fan. He's inconsistent. Kyle Wilson can also return kicks as well. Mardy Gilyard is among the top of the line as well. Watch out for Ray Fisher. Scared the crap out of me as an OSU fan when he returned kicks. A.J. Jefferson out of Fresno may be the best outside of the elite pair in Arenas and Spiller.
