as much as i hate to talk about the ravens, and worse, the chiefs, what they found in sammy parker and "x-man," respectively, were game changing players. the draft guides usually list them by their primary positions (WR, DB).
for our draft experts on the board, can we have a ranking solely on their return capabilities?
I agree that the return game was not up to par for the last couple of years, but don't rule out the rest of the return team as a culprit in that problem. The blocking on punt returns stinks and on kick returns, the blockers continually left their lanes or missed their man. I was hoping the Broncs would get Parker in the 6th last year. Still can't figure out why Squaws took him in the third when they already had dainty.
Just not sure they can afford to use one of their choices this year on a returner. They may need to work with Luke, Crenshaw, Johnson, and Alexander to see if one of them can make a difference.
