Scouting Report
Assets: One of the greatest return men in history, and he was one of the best athletes in football. He brought outstanding speed and change-of-direction quickness, making him a nightmare in the open field as a return man. Showed great instincts with the ball in his hands.
Flaws: He wasn't nearly as impactful as a wideout as he was as a return man, and dropped his share of passes. Didn't quite figure out how to translate his elusiveness and speed into regular big plays as a receiver. Was a bit small, which led to him getting jammed at the line as a receiver (and contributed to injuries.
Career Potential: All-time great return man / inconsistent wideout.
