Default Think Deebo will return kicks this year?

Given he's never played a full season, vital to offense & wanting to stay healthy to go pro?

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 chooses not to, I don't think there's anyway you put anyone else back there.

Other candidates?

AJ Turner
Jam Williams
Shi Smith
Fenton
Valentine? Don't know if he has but he has world class speed

It always makes you nervous when your KR is a key player...but those guys want to be on the field to make plays. Trust the coaches I say

I don't see it being a such a problem on KR, so I'd say why not? I feel like most injuries on special teams on KR happen to guys blocking and not the skill guy as long as he makes decent decisions. I mean, Bryce Sherman returned kicks and didn't die.


On PR, just whoever can field the ball. Having someone electric like Ace would be great, but at the end of the day, I'd take a guy who isn't a threat to break one but also never muffed one.

Yes, Deebo will return kickoffs.

Muschamp already said so. He had an interview about the change to the touchback rule, he referenced with Deebo that we don't plan on taking a knee for touchbacks.

Plus, Deebo has 1st Rd ability, but he has to showcase it. Right now he has the injury stigma, scouts are going to want to see him stay healthy all year. Deebo was on pace last year to best Desmond Howard's Heisman season stats. IMO, if he bests Desmond's stats this year, and we win 10+ games, Deebo has a real shot at the Heisman. IF he wins the Heisman, he would probably move into a Top10 overall pick. If Deebo just stays healthy, and has a good year (let's say All SEC and 2nd or 3rd team All American) he'll probably go in the 2nd or 3rd Rd.

Muschamp has already said he's going to. You don't put a preseason All-American KR on the bench. We might have lost NC State and MIZZOU without those TD's

Got to play your best players if you want to win. I'd be shocked to see him NOT returning kicks.

Only way I see him not out there is if we have a big lead on someone, they'd likely sub in someone to get ready for next year.

Besides, as good as our defense may turn out to be we may not have to return many kickoffs.

To not have Deebo return kicks would be "playing not to lose" instead of playing to win.

Deebo will return kicks every chance that he gets.

Now, the real question is how many times will he be kicked to?

I agree, put him in and let him rip. Special Teams is just as important to the game as Offense or Defense. Plus we have pretty good depth behind him at WR.

Kickoffs are actually the safest play he is involved in. No one touches him

I think before he got hurt last year, he had a touchdown 1/3 of the times he touched the ball. Get that man the rock early and often.

Negative, our staff will mix his area up on the field on ST’s to confuse where he’s at.

It would be extremely foolish not to have one of the best returners in the SEC/country returning kicks. He never got injured returning kicks. Half the time hes not even touched on kick return. I think a reporter asked muschamp this actually, and his response was something like “have you seen him return kicks? Ok then”.

Punt return is the bigger issue. That was embarrassing.
