I agree with Phoenix and AllTimeGreat. I'm not a big fan of drafting a return specialist guy unless he can produce well at another position. I'd rather pick a guy who is good at their position who happens to also be good returning than just a guy who is a return specialist who is ok or bad at their other position.
Phoenix, Ace Sanders as well. Some on here wanted him for returns. In college 53 for 594 and 3 TDs and for the Jags so far 8 punts for 33 yards and 16 of them came on 1 return. Not saying he can't get better but like you said they don't automatically translate.
Ace will be a solid return man in the long run IMO. He now has 16 attempts for 87 yards. On kickoffs he has 2 for 44.
Not many guys here were very high on Ace Sanders, and i would say so far he has exceeded most peoples expectations of him pre draft here on the webzone.
