We need a burner back there that can take it to the house. Of course, we have struggled with the basics of catching the ball, but we really do need a homerun hitter back there. I'm for Nixon or A. Brown.

Agreed but first priority is finding someone who knows their responsibilities toward fielding the ball and when to tell the team to GTFO of the way. We also had multiple NFL level kickers in Bo's era and we've been absolutely awful since. Makes no sense to me why it isn't a priority for this coaching staff.

I'd love a Tim Dwight. A guy who reliably fields it, and goes aggressively straight forward with no hesitation. Gets 8-12 yards when a juker would get 4-6. Still takes it to the house more than most out of basic aggression.

Rare in the modern game, everyone's trying to be Devin Hester's highlight reel.

Kamonte Grimes (Fr) was rumored to be a really fast punt returner, but I don't know if they are ready for him to be playing yet -- they might want to redshirt him. I haven't looked to see if he's participated yet.

Brown did not look good at kick off returns last year at all IMO

I would say, considering all of the kickers they brought in after last season, that the staff is absolutely making the kicking game a priority.
