Any concerns about the level of competition he played against?

I was just about to post this. It is one thing to return kicks in the historically black college league, where most fans go to the games to watch the half time show, it is totally different in the NFL. Most of his returns he made one cut and then out ran everyone (not by a lot I might add he almost got chased down a few times by people almost twice his size and almost once by a kicker), others he just followed a caravan of blockers to the end zone. He didn't look like he was making the competition look silly like and NFL return man should if he were playing in that league and he returned 10 kicks against the "U" yet none of those returns made the highlight reel. I wonder why?

I would pass on this guy because he looks like he would not be able to anything more than a return specialist and looks too small to ever get on the field. Even though RS is a major needs on our team if we have a bunch of injuries like we did this year we will have to cut good players to keep him or we will have to cut him like we did with Rossum. I would rather have a player like Spiller, Gillyard, Arenas, or even Mcluster who can also give the team depth at a need position.

but spending a pick on spiller would mean spending a 1st round pick which could be used on the secondary o line or pass rush if we get this guy we spend a late pick low risk and double the reward because we get a RS while getting a player who would make a better impact in the earlier rounds

Your not implying Spiller wouldn't make an impact? He would be a defensive coordinators night mare!
hes a Niners fan!!! DRAFT HIM!!!!
Looks good and it also looks like he understands what it takes to be a K/P return. Don't mind reaching, how much i don't know but if we are sure he can contribute to the team i hope we pick him up and use him in the wildcat also because our wildcat sucked last year.

Just forget the Wildcat/Taser, please!
draft him in the first round lolol
I would be okay with taking Vann in the 5th and beyond. However, I might prefer taking Akwasi Owusu-Ansah if he falls in a better value area between the 3rd-4th.

As long as we land some playmakers, I'll be satisfied.
I'm hoping we get a punt return specialist in the later rounds. Look what happened to Clements shoulder. Hate to lose a 2-3 rounder due to injury.

damn what a beast wouldnt mind spending a 5th 6th or 7th rounder

does anyone else see a devin hester here?

thats what i was saying to myself too. Change of direction and quick thinking without lose of speed...amazing!
Lets hope the Raiders dont get ahold of his highlights. He'll be gone in the second round
He looks like a nice player and all, but how fast is he really? I have my doubts about this one.
yeah he looks pretty explosive in good with that pick
