If I remember right I thought Jefferson was the most explosive from what I saw in spring game. I think CEH would be the safest, but the homerun hitter looked to be Jefferson. from what I saw this dude looked quick af hope he picks up playbook bc he looks like a homerun waiting to happen. same thing with mcmath he seemed pretty quick also curious how these two develop

Are any the caliber of Honey Badger or Skyler Green?

There’s only one honey badger, and one Patrick Peterson. Green isn’t even in this conversation. We just need a get who can catch the ball consistently and make the first guy miss like Dominique Davis did.

I hope Giles gets it. CEH probably has the best first move on the team, but we really need him fresh to carry the load on offense.

Just hope any of the three know when to field the punt or let it go into the endzone. I love chark but god sometimes I would yank my hair out. lol good luck to whoever wins the job.

It's gotta be one of the hardest and most intense spots to be in. Chark has some sketchy moments, but Tre White was the king of not calling fair catch, over the shoulder grabs, and running backwards. But they were both great returners when given space. Ball security is most important IMO. At least you’re getting the ball back worst case scenario. A huge return is awesome, but a muffed punt is devastating and I’d love to see a percentage of punt returns that have either holding or a block in the back called and ruin a huge play. That being said, we don’t beat state without chad jones going the length of the field for 6 in Starkville, or beat auburn last year without the chark return igniting the stadium and turning a comeback from a possibility into a reality

Im good with any of them personally but would prefer to see clyde continue to develop into our everydown back to where we dont want him returning punts. My first choice would be Giles just because of his size speed and vision
