Can Brackett be a hybrid?




When I look at Brackett,. I see a talented wide reciever, who lacks the ability to block well with his lower body. I think he is too talented a reciever to simply be placed on practice squad. What if we created his own position as a TE/WR Hybrid. Imagine how we could use him in goaline situations. This would result in essentially keeping 5 WR (Jackson, Maclin, Avant, Cooper, Johnson) and 3 TE. The reason I say this, why not have a big 6'5 target for Vick to throw to. I feel that the 6th WR spot should not be wasted for some potential "big" target who will get no playing time. I remember last season, the Pats would line Gronk or Hernandez to the outside with welker at the slot. These matchups can prove to be interesting for our favor if we use Brackett in a similiar way. He himself used to be WR in college so why not play on that advatage. Over time his blocking will improve, and then he can one day become a true TE. McNutt should be the one on PS, not Brackett who has proven himself as a good reciever all camp and preseason.
