    What was Brandon James' 40yd compared to Graham's 40yd? Is Fenley as fast a James was?

    Looks like BJ was a 4.47 entering the draft. So Graham may be a shade slower, which is fine if he has similar vision in the return game.

    Quincy Wilson was a 3 star too and was our best OL the past few seasons...

    Out of HS James was not 4.47. I’d say Graham is at least as fast if not faster out of HS. 40’s are ridiculously overscrunitized by us. Example
    1. windy day or wet day kid typically is 4.52 could easily run a 4.64

    2. Kid not stretched out properly runs 4.59 instead of his typical 4.49

    3. Kid has sore ankle, ham, quad
    And runs bad time. Happens more than we know.

    Most definitely. James was at his fastest after 4 years of S/C at the combine. You probably have only a handful of kids in CFB that can run 4.4s in pads anyway. Graham looks to be plenty fast enough, and that is secondary to having a feel for the return game - which BJ had in spades and it appears Graham is comfortable with as well.

    Great pick up. This will fix the only part of Special teams that is lacking.

    Kick return, Punt return.

    You obviously paid no attention to the number of three stars that we signed previously that outplayed five stars and ended up in the NFL.

    People forget how valuable starting field position is until it becomes a weakness

    Guess I have to say something before I hit post.
    Does Copeland have the hands for PR which is #1 for PR.
    If so no brainer.

    It takes a special type of dude to keep his eyes pointed directly up to the sky, while elite athletes are running full bore at you. I thought Toney would be great in that role, until he didn't field a couple cleanly.

    Our best punt returners have been of various speeds, but what most do exceptionally well it get up the field quickly. Brandon James was an absolute master at making one quick cut or juke on the gunner then exploding up field like he was shot from a gun. Shifty guys who dance around can occasionally pop off a big one, but I've always preferred the guy who goes vertical so quickly you gain back 10-15 yards nearly every punt received.

    Brandon James as great as he was had a number of returns called back for penalties. Can't remember how many but they made me pull my hair out.

    I remember him tearing up TN on returns one season. They could not defend or stop him.
