a wr that can also double as a kr/pr
I think I would rather have a RB who can double as a kr/pr. We essentially only have 2 backs right now. We need a 3rd one who has speed and quickness.
WRs, we seem to be pretty set with Morgan, Crabtree, Jones, Hill and likely Ziegler if we do not draft someone in the later rounds.
I think it could be a RB or WR. We need a return guy BAD that's for sure. But I also think we could use someone with more speed on offense. Right now the only burner we have is Davis. I'd like someone with speed that defenses have to respect, whether it's a RB or WR, that can field kicks and punts.
Honestly, I would have liked to see Jason Hill and Kory Sheets each get chance to be that guy, before we draft someone. Oh well.
Yes, we need a burner at either WR or RB, preferably WR. Spurlock is gone and Bruce and Battle likely won't be with us next season. Jacoby Jones could stretch the field for us and double as a returner.
I wonder how well Spiller could run WR routes. With his quickness, I doubt it would be an issue for him. He has nice hands and if he could slide out and play some WR (similar to Harvin), he could be a great pickup. We'd get an explosive player and a great returner.
