How high of a pick to invest in a KR/PR?

I think we continue to keep Brandon Jones as our KR/PR, and look for another low in the draft in case Jones earns a starting WR position (which I would hope considering his salary).
M. Gilyard. Cincinnati. WR/PR/KR Solves our problems on special teams, plus a super quick slot receiver for our new spread offense to go w/ Crabtree and Davis.
I say we spend a 4th rd pick on Dexter McCluster and he may last till then even though many here say he wont.I believe he'll do great as KR/PR and as RB to spell Gore on third down.He is only 160 pounds though.

But how many returners are actually starters in the NFL?

Actually a decent amount:

Harvin
Knox
Ginn
Jones
Cribs
Hester
Sproles
Washington
Royal
Crayton
Jackson
Bess
Welker

Dont see many starters there, mostly #3 wrs. But out of those guys most of them were drafted late. I dont think we should invest a high pick in a returner. I would say Bryant in the first is out of the question!

Almost all of those guys are starters, just because they play in the slot for instance doesn't mean they don't start.

Actually it does mean that. This is Davone Bess and he leads Mia in recieving.


Look at the games started (0).... http://www.nfl.com/players/davonebess/profile?id=BES106788

Only 2 wrs get the start per NFL team!

I would use more common knowledge when looking at actual starters. Yes the NFL classifies the 2 top WR's as starters but that is old school logic. Most teams have gone to the spread which means they open with 3 WR's and end with 3 WR's. I would count the #3 WR for NO for instance as a starter compared to their FB who probably never sees the field.

Being a slot WR doesn't mean you're not a starter, look at Welker for instance.

Dex will be gone no later then early 3rd....and that's probably pushing it.

Welker is "Mr. Consistent" in the short and intermediate areas of the field, most lethal working in the slot

From another article
FOXBOROUGH - The Jets milked that first one, didn’t they? They beat the Patriots way back when to go 2-0 en route to 3-0, and they had a lot to say. Of course, they didn’t beat the real Patriots, who were missing two players of some consequence.One, as we all know, was Wes Welker, the man Bill Belichick refers to as “the best slot receiver in the league.’’

Would you like me to continue?

Tom Brady Throws both to moss, welker and some grandma's shoping basket in the endzone. lol
Try to trade a 4th for Roscoe Parrish. Buffalo was trying to trade him last year for a mid to low round draft pick. It gives us an explosive returner and another slot reciever and besides, him and Frank Gore are best friends. I know that doesn't really have anything to do with it but oh well.
I would rather draft Jordan Shipley in the later rounds for a KR/PR he is good!
