    I watched a lot of highlight videos on our free agent acquisitions. Those that I could find anyway. This kid looks like he might turn out to be something. Not the fastest out of his breaks but still gets separation because his speed has to be respected. Gives a nice little head and shoulder fake too that Im sure he will work on. Too many receivers totally dismiss how their body language affects their success.

    A wr that doubles as a punter. Takes me back to the days of Billy Van Heusen. And I can't remember the last time I saw a punter that also returns kicks.

    Wow!!! There are a few plays that really exhibit how much of a burner he really is.

    1) At the 1:52 Mark, he destroys the 8 yard cushion, gets the CB to flip his hips and creates great separation on the comeback.

    2) At the 3:44 mark, he doesn't get touched at the line and just torches the CB on a go.

    3) At the 5:34 mark, he makes a smooth double move and shows off the long stride while he torches the CB.

    You can tell that this guy was a track runner because of that long stride. His stride reminds me of Tedd Ginn, but his first 3 steps seems quicker.
