Preseason top 20: Return specialists
We continue our breakdown of the nation's best players at each position with a look at the top 20 return men.
"Best" doesn't necessarily mean the most pro potential or even the most talent. Instead, it's a mix of what the player has accomplished and how we think the player will do this season. But production does trump potential.
We will look at a position a day until Monday, when we rank all 120 of the nation's quarterbacks. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will have coach and coordinator rankings. Here are the return men rankings.
