Brandon James – Florida's All-Time Leading Return Man

Brandon James is projected to go in Rd 7. He was the punt returner ahead of Percy Harvin at Florida. Has 4 punt return TD’s, 29 yds per punt return & 28 per KO avg return (2008). Florida all-time leader in return yards. I would try to pick two speed guys in this draft, one early and one late. James seems like a good late round pick.

I wouldn't be opposed, if he has recovered from the injury.

At the same time, if we draft a returner, I expect it to be a dual threat WR or a CB, as we seem to love loading up with all power-backs and have no room for speed at the position. (Gore, Norris, Robinson, Coffee) -- It's rare to have 4 RB's on a team.

Most teams carry 4 or 5 backs, so we could add a speed back and carry 5 backs. Esp. with a 7th rd flyer, and perhaps stash on PS. (plus Norris could be cut)

In addition, I'd also draft an early round speed WR / returner.
