Are there any slam dunk dual KR/PR options in the 2014 draft that could free up Cobb completely?

There's this Abbrederis fella...

Will you have this left guard to be the 224th pick?

I haven't seen him returns kicks in two years. Punt returns, sure! It looks like he returned a whopping 3 his freshman year and 28 his soph year. I was looking for somebody who had lots of experience at both slots and excel at it. I don't see Abby returning kicks in the NFL.

I've read a bit about a few guys that are PR/KR specialists, but TT rarely drafts those guys so I didn't pay any attention to them. He is more likely to use a guy like Abbrederis (and Cobb is a great example of why you draft guys like that).

Plus, you still have Hyde and Franklin on the roster.

Kick returners really aren't that important anymore with so many kicks going through the end zone. It's also not as much of an individual effort as returning punts. If I want good kick returns, the first step is getting four great special teams blockers. Then just find a guy that runs at least a 4.5 and have him run full speed behind them. I think Franklin would do just fine in that spot. I also really like Hyde on punt returns.

Will you have this left guard to be the 224th pick?

Several guys I have in my mock:

Travis Carrie, CB, Ohio (4th/5th round pick) - career PR average > 10.0, ran sub-4.50 at his pro-day, one punt return for TD, 9 career INTs, good size - 6'0", 205, but long injury history
Jerry "Boo Boo" Gates (6th/7th round) - three KR for TDs, one PR for TD, ran sub-4.50 at pro day, a little short (5'11", 205, 31.5" arms) but good special teams player
Jonathan Krause, WR, Vanderbilt (UDFA) - no KR experience but has returned two punts for TDs; ran sub 4.40 at pro day, but is a little on the small side (5'10", 180)
Trey Watts, RB, Tulsa (UDFA) - returned two kicks and a punt for TDs
