I really like this guy as some kind of middle round pick (not sure where he's expected to go) as . . . wait for it . . . a Kevin Faulk replacement. Yes, I know he's a CB but he's also a punt returner with good hands and his running style reminds me of Faulk. He also has a similar build. Not sure where he's expected to go, I assume not in the top few rounds, but he intrigues me as a guy who can be a PR and CB but with his hands, build and running style I am intrigued by him as a pass catching RB also.
His return skills are excellent. As a CB, he is the smaller, quick twitch type that BB prefers, but he really struggles in zone coverage.
If you are looking for a replacement for Faulk, a name to keep in mind is Spiller of Clemson.
He is a bit bigger, much faster and much quicker than Faulk. He is a decent RB. He is an exceptional receiver, just ask Miami? Ha! Ha! (The "U" stands for Uh! How did Spiller just out race our entire secondary down the sideline for a TD.) And he is an exceptional return man. Again just ask Miami, they would rather kick it out of bounds or squib it than let him return it.
Interestingly enough, every time I watch Clemson WR Ford play, I am reminded of how similar his game is to Troy Brown. WR Ford is definitely another player to keep an eye on come draft day.
