Who are some PR/KR specialists that are also WR?

Last year 17 att for 222 yards with a long of 64 and 6 FCs

2010 he had 21 att for 128 yards with a long of 18 and 22 FCs.

2009 he had 11 att for 93 yards with a long of 40 and 9 FCs.

He clearly had some issues during 2010 but it is pretty obvious that he can be trusted returning punts. He only had one KR and it was in 2010 for 19 yards.

I probably missed some but yea that pretty much covers the WR/KR combo players.

I like Jordan White with a late round pick, very good fluid receiver, good hands, bad injury history will scare away a lot of teams but nothing worse than what Gore went through. Capable of helping out on special teams as well as a legit receiving threat, made a thread about him in this section.

White looks like a very smart reciever and would be a great pick up if we wernt looking to upgrade at the reviever position. But we're really looking for that Big Redzone target and that player that can blow the top off of a defense. White looks more like a #2 reciever and we already have that in Josh Morgan and Crabtree. If he last til FA, sign him to PS and then let him destroy his competition. He's better than Hastings and Swain to me. BUt also, that injury history is redflag.

You are correct but Morgan is still a free agent and until we ink him to that deal we need to presume he could leave. I'd personally take White over Ginn or Williams. Ginn has mad speed but you just need vision to break off good punt returns(see Keshawn Martin's PR in the bowl game. Cant believe I forget him in my list).

Janoris Jenkins is a CB, but also a potential Niners pick. He could be an incredible return man.

Chris Givens is a WR that could be drafted, is great for the WCO, and can be a quality KR.

Givens has only returned 2 punts according to espn. being a KR is different then handling punts. we need someone who has extensive experience handling both types of returns.

Lets say we dont sign Morgan back and we let Ginn walk. Who would you feel more comfortable with Joe Adams or Jordan White? (this is after we pick up our 6'4+ reciever in the first round)

I'd pefer White. he has more experience then Adams in terms of handling PR's. IMO if you can do PR's well then you can do KR's just well. Not the other way around like Givens, who has more experience with KRs then PRs.

hmm I see. Hopefully White wont end up being the Bob Sanders of recievers. Loads of talent but lays his body on the line for plays and ends up injured all season. Id rather just get the most balanced guy because Hunter and Reggie Smith both return punts as well and our reciever corps needs way more help than our return team. Soo I guess we're looking for a reciever first and a returner second.

Yes IMO we can find a DB who can handle PRs instead of a WR, for example Cliff Harris in the 4th or 5th round would be an excellent CB addition but he is a great return man on top of that.

Joe Adams = This years Titus Young
I cannot stress how badly I want Devon Wylie on this team. The kid SCREAMS "Wes Welker/Steve Smith" ability.

The guy, on a SOAKING WET FIELD was cutting and blowing past defenders with ease during the East-West Shrine practices. He was simply unaffected by the playing field. Wylie's impeccable balance no matter what the conditions combined with a STRONG, thick Steve Smith-like frame, combined with the Smith-like speed, and Welker-like quickess.. I mean.. WOW! He is becoming one of my highest rated receivers on my board. I currently grade him one slot below Joe Adams on my positional board.

.. But I don't want to hype him up too much (maybe too late, already).

T.Y. Hilton, WR/KR, Florida International Height: 5-10. Weight: 183. Projected 40 Time: 4.41. Projected Round (2012): 3

Speedy and agile, Hilton put together a strong senior season. His straight-line speed is a mismatch for defenses and special teams units. Hilton was on fire against Louisville. He caught seven passes for 201 yards with two touchdowns. One of those scores was an 83-yard touchdown strike. For the season, Hilton has 72 receptions for 1,038 yards and seven touchdowns. Also, he has returned 18 kicks for 548 yards this season with eight punts returned for 186 yards and a touchdown. Hilton put together a season to show that he should be a second-day pick in the draft.

Jordan White, WR, Western Michigan Height: 6-0. Weight: 215. Projected 40 Time: 4.54. Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

White was college football's most productive receiver this year. He led the nation in receptions and yards while finishing second in receiving touchdowns. White caught 140 passes for 1,911 yards with 17 touchdowns. He plays bigger than his listed size, with the speed to get downfield and produce long touchdowns. However, some question if he has NFL speed. White broke out in 2010 with 94 receptions for 1,378 yards and 10 touchdowns. The wide out also has some punt-return skills. He is a sleeper who could be a surprise at the next level. If White excels at the combine and in the lead up to the draft, he could go early on the second day.

Joe Adams, WR/PR, Arkansas Height: 5-11. Weight: 174. Projected 40 Time: 4.38. Arm: 31 3/8. Hand: 9 3/8. Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

This season, Adams was part of a dangerous receiving corps. He caught 54 balls for 652 yards and three touchdowns. The senior projects to being a slot receiver in the NFL. Adams has the speed and quickness to match up well with nickel cornerbacks. 33 punt returns for 321 yards and 4 TDs. Just youtube this guy. His highlights speak more words than the stats give him credit for.
