Felton is listed as a RB on the Senior Bowl roster, but his future in the NFL is likely as a hybrid RB/slot receiver. You want quickness and speed? Felton has it in abundance; his ability to cut laterally and make defenders miss is on display this week, and people are taking notice. He’s a threat to score from anywhere on the field, and also has experience as a returner.
The question about Felton is whether or not he ends up in the right situation on the right NFL team. The hybrid weapon is becoming increasingly popular in the NFL, but Felton’s size limitation out of the backfield and lack of blocking experience could limit his opportunities. He also had some issues with drops, but increased repetitions at WR may be the remedy for that.
