Devin Hester: Chicago Bears WR/KR/PR
Height: 5'11" Weight: 190 lbs Age: 26
Hester is the popular pick for the NFL's top return man, while some proclaim him to be the best of all time. He has electrifying speed and keen field vision, allowing him to maneuver his way down field and reach the end zone.
In addition to being the Bears' return specialist, Hester also sees time as a wide receiver. In his rookie season, Chicago worked him in at cornerback, as they wanted to find as many ways as possible to incorporate such a great talent into their lineup.
However, it is returning punts that Hester has found the most success with during his three years in the league. Over those three seasons, he has amassed 1,449 punt return yards and 7 touchdowns.
Although he has more yards returning kickoffs, with 2,141, that si a much easier task than handling the punts. He also has 4 kick returns for TDs, including a 108 yard missed field goal return. He added one on the opening kickoff of Superbowl XLI, something that had never occurred until then.
Finally, Hester has 71 receptions going for 964 receiving yards and 5 scores, 51 rushing yards, and 13 tackles, making him one of the most versatile players in the NFL. Being as young as he is, it looks like Hester has not even reached his pinnacle.
Opposing teams will have a few more years to wait until they are relieved of the ever-present threat of Devin Hester taking kicks and punts the distance.
