2016 College Season

2016 NFL Draft: Ranking This Year’s Top Return Specialists

Due to so many college prospects (generally just running backs, receivers and defensive backs) having experience as returners, there’s a wealth of talent for NFL teams to choose from and ample competition for the few returner spots that are open each year.

The eight prospects discussed are the best returners in the 2016 NFL draft, but the seven below could earn a draft grade bump thanks to their return ability alone:

  • Jakeem Grant, Texas Tech
  • DeAndre Reaves, Marshall
  • Bralon Addison, Oregon
  • Chris Moore, Cincinnati
  • Tyler Boyd, Pittsburgh
  • Paul McRoberts, Southeast Missouri State
  • Morgan Burns, Kansas State
