    As in touching the ball, not touchdown, preseason or otherwise.

    Looks like he's 100%!

    Because of his inconsistency and long stretches of invisibility in college?

    aside from last year when he was hurt, I cant remember much inconsistency or stretches of invisibility with him.

    nor can I. He did measure out to just 5'9 180ish though & didn't post a great 40 time at the combine... I think thats a more likely reason he dropped

    He dropped to the 4th round as aside from returns it doubtful he will do much else in the NFL. I would think that's a good round for a return specialist.

    He can catch the ball so id look at him more as a Darren sproles/danny Woodhead type back. Wouldnt be surprised to see andy reid line him up in the slot a bit this year either

    Yeah, I thought about that, but I don't think dat can hold on to the ball well enough. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at safety instead.

    Iv got no clue if he could or not. Id like to say he could but the players that will be hitting him are on a whole other level physicality wise then most of who he played against in college. There is also the fact with bigger faster stronger guys tackling him he may not be able to physically hold up.

    He's going to be a return specialist in the NFL, and return specialists are rarely every drafted very high. Even though they can make huge impacts in a game, I personally think they are under-rated.
