Guess we'll see. Certainly is nice to see a influx of talent.
But with kickoffs rarely getting returned these days its tough to keep around a guy that all he does is return punts. NFL punters can kick away from Banks or kick out of bounds to negate him, and then you have 1 guy holding down a valuable roster spot that might make an impact during the game.
Of the top 4 projected WR's only Josh Morgan can contribute on special teams. Thats why I don't have Briscoe making the team. He doesn't play special teams.
What I would like to see is Banks used on screens and reverses on offense. Forget the downfield stuff. He is so tiny and quick he can get lost on screens and reverses and be very effective that way.
