2008 CFN Preseason First Team All-American Punt Returner

Brandon James, Jr. Florida
The 5-6, 179-pounder was a tremendous kickoff returner averaging 28 yards per pop, and an even better punt returner averaging 18.1 yards per try with a touchdown, but he wasn't used much in the running game with just 24 carries for 133 yards and with eight catches for 69 yards. He had a few legal problems stemming from a drug issue before last season, but everything has cleared up.

2008 CFN Preseason First Team All-American Kick Returner

A.J. Jefferson, Jr. Fresno State
An All-America return man who averaged 35.8 yards per try last season with two touchdowns, the 6-1, 190-pound junior has tremendous wheels and the type of athleticism that should translate well at corner. While he made 37 tackles and broke up three passes, he can do more. He has the potential to be great.
