Send the kid deep, use him on screens. All you have to do is make the D fear his speed and the field opens up a bit.
The very thing you like about him, makes me leery; his speed.
Because of his speed, he's never really developed any other skills. As you pointed out, as a returner, he has no real vision, no escapability moves, no shiftiness - he has to beat everyone to the corner or he's toast.
I'm a little leary of track guys who got to play football because of principally because of their speed. Aren't we trying to unload one of those guys?
one more thing... at his size, one good jam or lick and he's off his feet. No more downfield threat.
