Seems like if he was a kick return phenom in college he might know about ball security.
Use him Mike!

So, 10 total returns? 4 of them TDs? Hmmm. Very interesting. Giving him a go on the PS to see if he can really play at this level is not a bad idea. Maybe we see Dunn promoted to the 53 sometime this season.

One component of the safety crap they are pushing is moving up the kickoffs, resulting in so many kicks not being returned. Just the same, I'd like to see somebody back there with some explosiveness - maybe Dunn. A punt returner will get a lot more chances. I wonder if Dunn has shown any ability to do that. Ditto all that for Michael Hill who actually is on the 53 now.

Hyde looked good on PR, I wonder why they haven't seem to try him at KR.

Yes, I understand he doesn't have the deep speed most look for in a kick off returner, but looking around at the options the Packers have on their 53 man roster,

Packers would like someone that can

~ safely catch the kicks.
~ will be smart with the ball.
~ doesn't play a ton of offense or defense (because don't want those guys injured)

Cobb plays a lot on offense and don't want him injured.

I'd think the best options would be Hyde and Franklin, and Franklin hasn't always been smart with (punt) returns and is important now with all the other RBs injured. Leaving just Hyde.

I think Hyde would be just as good as Nelson was and we used Nelson on kick returns when there weren't really other options.
