Two positive stats to maintain
Overall punt returning effectiveness
Berrios was a fantastic punt returner in 2019. His average of 11.4 yards per punt return ranked third-best out of 38 players in the league with at least 10 tries. Football Outsiders’ advanced measurement of efficiency, DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average), supported Berrios’ excellence as they had the Jets ranked fourth-best in punt return DVOA.
Punt returning consistency
What makes Berrios’ punt return average so impressive is the fact that he accrued it with a long return of only 25 yards. It speaks to his remarkable consistency. Berrios picked up at least 10 yards on 13 of his 21 punt returns (61.9%).
Optimism , stems from his collegiate success at Miami , second year in the system, big YAC guy. Vertically challenged, but WR Screens could be huge in Jet Offense with new mobile Offensive Lineman. Double Slot with Crowder.
