Rather than signing Kelly Campbell who has never returned one for a TD.

We did not sign Kelly Campbell to return kicks. We have one of the best in the league in Welker. Campbell is a Special teams ace and is a good back-up wr. two things that Bloom is not.

Bloom would be an interesting pick both on special teams and if we could use him in Offence. I'd rather him than Campbell. But I wouldn't want to draft him until one of our 7th round picks. We hav bigger needs

Welker is a good punt returner, but average on kick returns... We need to get a kick returner...

But I wouldnt want to use a 4th on him though... We can get much better value in the 4th than Bloom...

Bloom runs a 4.5 forty and is really agile(watch him ski/snowboard) and if he stays off the snowboard and healthy in the NFL then he will do well.

He's a skier. And he's faster than a 4.5 when in football shape, he's even faster long distance. He would be a good pick in later rounds. To bad we don't have a 5th or 6th.

spending a 4th on a punt returner is foolish when we already have a decent one.

Welker has done an outstanding job as a returner, that will be a wasted pick

He's not only going to be a kick returner in this league he will be a very good reciever

he has more work ethic than anyone I have ever seen, and has extremly good hands, yeah he is small, but thats not his fault he will work with what he has and be a very good NFL player

Yes he has, in 2004.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/statistics?stat=return&season=2&year=2004Okay so he did it once. I don't see it too often and he muffs way too many punts.

He kicked XPs and FGs once?

You missed that? Against the Pats in 2004 he became the first person to ever return a kickoff, punt, kick a PAT, and a kickoff.

Second, in NE. Doesn't seem like you know much about the guy you want to replace.

Ah man I was only able to catch the end of that game because I had work.

The last seconds were amazing.

Also I do know Welker is a good receiver but a merely average returner.

Welker is a great punt returner, some guys are all or nothing, welker will get something positive every time

As a kick returner he is average
