I did watch him, a lot. He's a patient returner that allows, and keeps blockers in front of him throughout the return. Nothing wrong with that, but he lacks the speed to break away if blockers aren't there. He's a creative runner, but he doesn't have any special abilities that make him a sought after returner. He'll never be a great NFL returner. The speed of the game is just fast enough to keep him from being what he was at Bama.
