I can see him as WR/RB but wouldn't be surprised one bit if he is utilized the same as TM7. Playing nickel back blitzing off the corner with that speed n still having the opportunity to return punts and kicks. Either way this kids is special

Incorrect! That's how so many got into trouble in their thinking about RS. We should play the best ball players, not necessarily the fastest.
Oh, and I guess a lot of folks just learned about the importance of hips (not you, snake) in CBs. But that's rarely the reason someone can't play CB well. If a guy is fast and quick but not a good corner it's usually because he doesn't have the instincts for the position. CB'ing is usually about hunches and guesswork.

Bottom line. Jeryl is stupid fast. I say let him play CB and special teams, then put him in on offense occasionally like Georgia did with Boykin. Just the threat of him possibly getting the ball could open up the field for other guys to make plays.
