Punt/Kick Returners?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for good returners (mainly punt returners) in the 2021 draft whom will not be selected in the first three rounds of the draft. 

Do you like/know of any players that might fits that bill?

I've been looking for a good list of returners and that best I've seen was a list of returners, whom I believe the majority will be selected in the top 2 rounds. Which yes, they're great athletes there, but you expect them to add to offense and defense. I'm looking for some guys that could be found later in the draft (or at least not a top round), help on STs and of they give you anything on offense or defense that's just bonus. Thanks.

Dazz Newsome 

Shi Smith

 

Marquez Stevenson 

Ihmir Smith-Marsette

 

Ihmir Smith-Marsette I agree with, he has big time return potential and really untapped explosive playing ability, dude has some jets.  Stevenson as well, Newsome I feel is not that elite of a return man, that was more great blocking on that specific play than him being a great return guy, has good eyes though but not as explosive as Stevenson or Smith-Marsette.  

 

JD Spielman is a sleeper return man, most likely will be a UDFA without having a great senior season but really did some things as a kick return man as a freshman.  And was a dangerous punt return man when given a chance.

 

Obviously a guy selected in the 1st round so is not included here, but still Jaylen Waddle has amazing return ability, what he did at Bama those first two years has rarely been done at that high of level recently as a punt return man.  He had crazy amount of yards doing that in big time games.  24.4 average on punt returns as a SOPH is nuts.

Newsome is the fifth highest graded punt returner over the last three seasons according to PFF, has a grade of 91.

True but I doubt he survives the top 90 picks.

Didn't see the bit about not going in the first three rounds. Yeah, he's definitely gone in Round 2 or 3.
