  • 2011 Draft: Top Return Specialists?

    Anyone have a complete list of all the RBs, WRs, CBs, and Ss that have return capabilities?

        Good stuff. Here's what I've got so far. Feel free to add comments about why these guys should or shouldn't be on this list.

        1. Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
        2. Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
        3. Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
        4. Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma St
        5. Jerrell Jernigan, WR, Troy
        6. Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
        7. Quizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon St
        8. Rashad Carmichael, CB, Virginia Tech
        9. Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska
        10. Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU
        11. Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina
        12. Ronald Johnson, WR, USC
        13. Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky
        14. Joe Lefeged, SS, Rutgers
        15. Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
        16. Marcus Gilchrist, CB, Clemson
        17. Shiloh Keo, SS, Idaho
        18. Edmund Gates, WR, Abilene Christian
        19. Justin Rogers, CB, Richmond
        20. Vance Cuff, CB, Georgia
        21. Aldrick Robinson, WR, SMU
        22. Jock Sanders, WR, Western Virginia
        23. Shakey Smithson, WR, Utah
        24. Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, WR, Iowa
        25. Phillip Livas, WR, Louisiana Tech

        All rated off projected draft position, not returning prowess.

          Solid thread... I was going to post the same thread because this is weakness #1 for the Packers, and I don't know a lot of these players.
          I know guys like Josh Cribbs can come from anywhere.

          My Packers need a guy they can get who can either be a #5 WR for now and an instant stud at KR/PR, or a 3rd RB who can double as stud return guy. Ideally, a WR. I guess a CB to replace the piece of schit Pat Lee or Brandon Underwood, but we don't draft CBs very well.

            Well let me help out here, starting at the bottom of your list with Philip Livas.
            Two videos here:

            Head to head against bigger guy from LSU. Came out okay.




            I don't like how he got caught from behind by the larger guy.

              Shaky Smithson.


              Jock Sanders... too small?


              Aldrick Robinson, that's the best video SMU athletics could give us?


              Edmond Gates, can't see KR-specific clips.

                How good can Randall Cobb be for 3 years focusing on being a return specialist?

                  Torrey Smith is pretty good at returning kicks. Broke Devin Hester's acc records.5100 yards and 3 TD career yards.

                    and md didnt even let him return much his junior year because they wanted him to be full time wr. most of those yards came freshman and sophomore year.

                      I'm stunned nobody's mentioned Taiwan Jones. I think he has immense potential at excelling on returns

                        Why is Quizz on your list? I'm an Oregon State fan and I don't think I've ever seen him return a punt or a kick, he was too busy carrying the ball 250 times a year to play special teams. Whether he can do it or not, I have no idea... but we have nothing to go on to conclude that he does. Just because a guy has the physical tools to be a good returner doesn't mean he can actually do it. In TC last year Green Bay had designs on Sam Shields being the returner, since he's crazy fast... but he couldn't actually catch the ball underhanded. Good thing he could cover instead.

                          Has he done it though?

                            I guess its the speed and size combo. Without the ability to return kicks, who exactly is going to draft him before day 3? Maybe I'm off base here.
