Nabers looks to insert himself as WR2 after a stellar fall camp. Looking to carry over his success into the season, he has the opportunity to shine bright for an LSU group that has several weapons on the outside.
The gifted wideout is prepared to do more than be a lethal pass catcher this fall. He’s also prepared to be LSU’s starting kick returner. Nabers won the job as both kick returner and punt returner during camp, putting his athleticism and quick, twitchy movements on full display.
“I think we feel pretty good with Malik Nabers as our returner. We feel like he’s got the ability to change the game,” Kelly said. “When you have a guy back there like Malik, you get a buy-in from everybody in terms of your kickoff return team, your punt return team. They see the talent with a guy like that.” But Kelly has been extremely complimentary of Nabers and what he brings to this team, speaking of him during fall camp.
