I posted a poll in the diary section asking if you would rather see Devin Hester play defense or offense and 69% of you said offense. It was also thought that the Bears drafted him at CB to add to the overall speed of the secondary, but as it turns out it is by Hester's request. It turns out that Hester grew up a huge Deion Sanders fan.
Hester came on board as about our 5th or 6th cornerback in camp, but is quickly making a name for himself.
''The game slowed down for him,'' secondary coach Steve Wilks said. ''That's the key. We gained a lot more confidence in him because he gained a lot more confidence in himself.''
While secondary coach Sanders doesn't want to loose him, he still believes that Hester should get some touches on offense.
Either way, I think other teams will be kicking themselves a few years for now for passing on this kid.
On a side note, Hester was almost a Titan. Tennessee had called him and congratulated him as they were about to pick him. It is not said what changed their mind, but the Titans decide to go with LenDale White instead.
