Dude for the Aints is legit. Deonte Harris is his name, wow! The bagheads blew two of his nice returns & did nothing but kick field goals in that game against the Bucs.

Yep, He is really nice and can be a weapon for them. Question for him will be can he stay healthy. Any players that small will have that issue.

For him he usually does, but he was thrust into a needed receiver role with the injury on Michael Thomas and that was some extra wear and tear on his body.

If he stays either in the KR/PR role or become a gadget slot player, then he should be fine based on what he has shown so far.

He played well in the first round of the playoffs as receiver but like you said he's just small.

ngl, I completely forgot about Hester. The last thing I remember him for was continually destroying our special teams in that 2016 divisional game. Thank god for that penalty that called one of his returns back.

I actually have no recollection of that lol. -****, goes to show how long ago 2016 really was, feels like yesterday until one really thinks about it.

lol yeah. I remember Seattle had a huge return by Hester that got called back which soon after set up the trip and fall safety which kind of started the snowball effect of us taking control of the game. Then later in the game hester had 2-3 more big returns I believe.

Lets not give up on Rowland to soon. He was signed as an UDFA I believe primarily to be our KR/PR.

 

Bio:

The Tennessee State University receiver was one of the most productive playmakers in FCS history. Rowlands versatility as a pass catcher, returner, and even as a scat back makes him one of the steals in this year’s draft.

Accolades:

Led Nation in Receiving yards and Receiving yards per game (2019)

Walter Camp FCS All-America Team (2019)

All-Ohio Valley Conference First Team – Wide Receiver (2019)

Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Year (2019)

All-Ohio Valley Conference First Team – Return Specialist (2019)

HERO Sports FCS First Team All Purpose Player (2019)

Strengths:

Rowland’s has the ability to run the route tree, which makes up for his lack of elite size. Rowlands has a high football IQ, uses that to manipulate defenses finding holes in zone coverage and exploiting defensive backs in man to man coverage. Rowland’s versatility not only as a pass catcher but as a return specialist makes him a dangerous weapon to add to any team.

Areas to Improve:

Rowland does not possess elite height and that will probably be his biggest knock throughout his draft process. His lack of a catch radius will cause for doubts however, Rowland knows how to use his body to make plays and be a dynamic player on the field

Rating:

80 out of 100

Player Comp:

A faster Julian Edelman

Yea, the cobwebs are receding a bit. Was a late season pickup by them I believe... Funny how Falcons fans are complaining about returners all the time and we had three of probably the top 10 ever to do it in Hester, Deion and Rossum... grant it, all played ages ago. We unconsciously spoiled perhaps lol?

You beat me to it!  Rowland is exactly who I was going to mention as far as punt returner.  Dude is sneaky fast and can turn on a dime.   I'm still bummed we didn't give him a chance until the last week of the season.   I think he could develop into much more than just a return guy given some time.

You left off Billie White Shoes Johnson who was one of the first to make a name for himself as a primary returner. he would also be in that top 10.

Can we get a decent returner?

Where's Allen Rossum these days?

I propose you Kalif Raymond he is only 26 years old, he is FA in 2021. He is a Georgia boy, he was also in Tennessee with Arthur Smith. But the main thing is that he's a top 10 returner in 2020.
