But punt return is a more glaring need than kick return with Mewelde Moore on the roster. If Wallace isn't that guy, I think this is a pretty bad pick.
    Moore can return punts. IIRC, he led the league a few years ago in punt returns.
    I believe you do remember correctly 43 and that's one of the reasons I was excited to get him (Moore) last year. That said, he couldn't separate himself for us and we even went with Holmes for a spark in that area.

    I was just really hoping for an electric punt return guy and he's never even sniffed a return...disappointing from that perspective. What happened to that midget from Arizona?

    Tomlin needs to stop bouncing players around. It's his biggest downfall imo. He moves the OL around like ping pong balls, returners, corners, etc. You have to let them develop and get in rhythm, especially on the OL, secondary and returning.

    Moore will be fine or Wallace. Just make a freaking decision and stick with it.
    I can't really say Tomlin bouncing guys around is a bad thing since we just won a SB....

    People said Holmes at PR was a bad thing.. but look how it helped us in the playoffs...

    I think Tomlin is smart enough to know that in this NFL... you have to be flexible.

    I love this pick if he can be a return man as a rookie. Genius pick if thats the case

    That comparison makes a lot of sense, except this guy also has return ability.

    What is the difference between Wallace, taken in the third round, and Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was taken 7th overall?

    i dont think there is much difference. i have seen a lot of bey over the years and i have never been too impressed. i thought he was a bit of a reach late in the first round nevermind the 7th overall pick

    That is what I thought as well. And we get Wallace 77 picks after Bey. Top 7 money vs. 3rd round money too.
