Sure he'll return kicks. Injuries can happen on any play. He is probably less likely to be hurt when he has the ball and has blockers in front of him then when he is trying to look back to catch a pass and there is defender tracking him. There is no reason to be afraid for him to return kicks if he is going to play football this year.

It's tough to not want him back there when he went 2/2 last year for TD's but at the same time, we need the guy for 12-15 games!
Unless he goes to the coaches and says no of course he will. He's arguably the deadliest KO return man in the country.

Exactly, so why wouldn’t he be used on Special Teams? This argument holds no water.

Default Re: Think Deebo will return kicks this year?

I would hope so. He may be the best return man in the country. You can't play football trying not to get hurt...and as others have already said...you can get hurt on every play at any time.


The return game is part of the game...offense, defense and special teams are how football is played. Field position is the single most underrated stat in football...other than turnovers. Field position and possessing of the ball is what football is. The entire game is about moving the ball down the field, stopping your opponent from moving down the field and pocession of the ball. Not having your best return man return kicks because you're afraid he may get hurt would be like not starting your best QB because you were worried he may get hurt.

Apples and oranges comparison. Deebo needs to be a KR on Special Teams in order to help enhance his draft status. You can get injured on any play, part of the game. He needs to display himself all over the field and prove to NFL scouts that he has the physical toughness to play at the next level. If you get injured, you get injured, it’s football, it happens, but don’t play ‘not’ to get injured because you won’t be at your best.

100% he receives the first kick-off this year. I'm just praying he receives the last one also.

Exactly, please stay healthy Deebo and be a first round all American! Wouldn’t it be cool if we were down slightly or tied with Clemson with seconds left and Deebo takes it to the house for the win!

Not the same deal, Clowney was the #1 pick for sure heading into that season barring injury. Deebo needs a big year to be a 1st rounder. He's very capable of having that type of year but he needs to show off all he brings to the table and I guarantee you until the NFL does away with kickoffs he'll be used as a KOR specialist as well as a WR unless he has a monster rookie season.

At that point hope you have a kicker who can put it out of the back of the end zone.

Valentine has a set of wheels, I hope we see him in some capacity this year, he will be very hard to run down in the open field.

He should be the one returning kicks. He's one of the best returners in the country.

But I doubt many teams give him that opportunity. I bet he gets very few chances this year.

I'd be happy if he got one per game, cause that would mean the D is shutting it down.

I realize this isn't likely but one can hope.

As long as he stays healthy, he will more than make up for that on offense.

If you put Deebo back there, you only have to worry about him getting his hands on a kickoff maybe twice a game.


The other team will try to squib kick the ball (because of the way the return team usually lines up he is going to be one of two choices if the team kicks it high).







We cannot voluntary give of one of our greatest assets to get "free" field position.
