Final Analysis: Bonner was a solid college receiver who was also used a return specialist. He's more of a practice-squad player and a prospect who must earn his wage on special teams.
Basically what's been said already on this board
Nothing wrong with that.
Quote:
After one season on the practice squad, Smith appeared in all 16 games the following year, contributing primarily on special teams.
It was Smith’s eagerness to contribute in any way possible that raised the attention of the team’s coaching staff at the time and led to opportunities to increase his playing time.
“You have no choice,” he said about playing on special teams. “There are only 11 spots on offense and defense. Special teams is where they decide whether they’re going to keep some guys or not. A lot of guys think, ‘Well, I play receiver or I play linebacker.’ No, you play football. That means you play whatever they need you to play to give yourself a chance to make the football team. For me, returning punts, covering kicks – whatever it was, I just wanted to have a chance to be on that football team and that was a spot. You just want to get one of the spots. There are only 53 of them, you need to get one of them. The more you can do, the better your chances.”
