    I will be interested to see how we use him this season. He has true breakaway ability and might be our fastest offensive player. Our offense really lacked the big play last year, hopefully he can change that. A little hard to get him a ton a carries at RB with Scott/Speedy, but hopefully he is not is not ignored ala Lawrence Vickers and others over the years.

    I'd love to see him back returning punts, playing slot, etc. Like you said, get him involved in the game plan.

    The way Vickers was utilized (or not) still pisses me off. You've got to get players like that involved.

    I think we are gonna see a lot of motion in this offense. It would not surprise me to see quite a bit of helfrich style handoffs going sideways to B-Lock and other (hopefully FAST) players coming out of the slot or split wide.

    With so much speed, it would be interesting to have some designed plays built into the offense. Maybe a direct snaps to one of the RBs, some double and triple options. Maybe Hansen can run the option? A few down field laterals could be cool, too, so long as they work.

    Yea, I agree. He was impressive in the spring game. Definitely a player that needs to be involved. I'm sure he'll be involved on the end arounds.

    Wasn't it decided a while back that he would be moving to WR, or is that Moyd I'm thinking of?

    I'm hoping the B-Lock is the starting KR. I think he'd make us forget about Josh Smith pretty quickly.

    I don't think it would be hard anyway for us to forget Josh Smith. I like the guy, but it was about 50/50 as to if he would do something stupid or break a big play.

    Yep. Josh was feast or famine back there. More consistency with an occasional big return would be great.
