Too  bad A. Hayes didn't have a chance to compete at training camp.

That puts the roster now at 71 including, I believe, just 1 non-counter (Jack McEwen). 
So, I expect we'll see another 5 counters signed over the next 10 days.

Pretty sure Scarfone is a non-counter as well. Players from the previous year's draft who have not played a professional game are non-counters. (SEC 14.02 Paragraph 4. Part c,ii)

I'm pretty sure that, among draft picks from the previous year, only those who never attended a pro training camp would be non-counters.

Bryce Wilkerson  --  appears to be a slightly bigger, about 8-year younger and, maybe, a touch faster  --   Speedy Banks.  You don't have to watch all 8 minutes to see the resemblance in their play:

Have to agree with you on that . Eerily similar to Speedy B . Almost a younger version in fact . Who knows ? We might just have found our new kick and punt return man . Fingers crossed .

Lots of competition this year for some key roster spot openings for sure . It's going to make for a very interesting T.Camp and preseason for this team . It's going to be also very interesting to see who makes the final 46 man on opening day . I'm thinking that Jones is going to have to have a pretty sharp knife on hand on final cut down day and more than a few good players will ultimately be released because we can't keep them all unfortunately .

The ones they really like, and numerically can't keep, will get sudden "injuries" out of nowhere.  :)

Right you are. My bad. Apologies & Kudos OC!

Too  bad A. Hayes didn't have a chance to compete at training camp.
I read somewhere that he just had far too many drops at mini-camp.  I guess they figured he wasn't worth developing. 

Speed is meaningless if you can't acquire the ball.

Ramrod

Didn't the "Als" sign a World Class Sprinter once (John Carlos?)?  I think he got cut for just the same reason---all the speed in the world can't help you if you "ain't got the hands". 

Palmer

Does the name Giguere ring any bells regarding speed and hands?

I wouldn't say Giguere has bad hands.  Satisfactory hands is a better way to say it.  Not bad or great hands, just good enough.

He was in the NFL for 3 years, where as a guy like Hayes wouldn't even get an NFL camp invite.

So to sum up...  Sam G has "good enough" hands, and guys like Hayes have no hands.
