I agree that if it’s better than i’m All for it.  I’m so tired of not being able to run the ball or have a 4 min offense.

3 and out....over and over and over...until they are down and open up...fingers crossed with the big meanies too

When I watch this guy (his highlights) he looks fast but not 4.3 fast.  I don’t see a guy that is head and shoulder faster than everyone he plays.  He does look good on KR though and I’m always down for having a weapon for the 3rd phase.

i think hes suppose to be more "quick" then fast. if that makes sense. more cutting and stop on a dime then run down the field at 4.3

Yep.  Man hopefully those guards pan out.

Only chance Huntley has to make the team is to become the primary KR, part time PR. He's not going to get carries. The dude is tiny. Say he's got a 98% broken tackle rate or whatever, yeah fine, he played at New Mexico State.

Unless this cat is Darren Sproles, or can show some kind of heretofore unguessed-at slot receiver skills, we will not see much of him, maybe keep him around on the practice squad for a while.

To me it’s more about that speed against LB in the flat out of slot etc

 

his receiving was the targeted aspect and his return game was secondary 

 

just a hunch

So maybe like he's a possible Theo Riddick? OK fine but he's still a tiny wee person. He's going to need great great skill to overcome that.

 

Edit: ok I can see his receiving numbers are solid. I'm still pretty skeptical on him.

I can't pretend that I knew about Jason Huntley before now, but I do know that this team is in desperate need of speed... Across the board this team lacks speed. When you watch our games and then watch Playoff teams play, you notice the difference IMO. Huntley will take J.D. McKissic's role, 3rd Down back, receiver out of the back field, line up in the slot, get a couple carries here and there. With his speed and quickness, this guy could be a playmaker if they put him in good positions to get into open space. That's on Darrell Bevell. 

I like the pick for those reasons.

Classic gadget type player on offense, return specialist. I like this selection and thought it was a good one. Agnew is good/ok. I don't have gripes with him but getting fresh legs returning always seems to be a trend in the NFL, returners DO NOT LAST. 

He's got the ceiling of someone like Darren Sporles, Josh Cribbs, Tavon Austin. He should have a solid stint at least as a returner with potential for more if used correctly in an offense. * Personally, I think he'll just be a solid/above average returner. *

After having had a chance to think about it, this pick makes a lot of sense.  DeAndre Swift and Kerryon Johnson are at the top of the depth chart but KJ has trouble staying healthy.  Bo Scarborough is staying with the team because he is a big back with somewhat surprising speed.  Ty Johnson has good straight-line speed without a lot of elusiveness but showed that he can break some tackles.  Someone will be inactive each week but we should be able to match up against a lot of different defenses.

FWIW, the adjusted rate accounts for the defenses you play.
