As you know Urban likes speed, and he has plenty of it this year. He also likes special teams which didn't make many big plays last year. So, who do you think will be punt returner and kick returners? 

As punt returner I see Curtis Samuel, and for kick returners I see Dontre Wilson and James Clark (Without setbacks to ankle injury)

I agree. But also Marshall. I would think you would have to add Dixon also

Dixon and Samuel and Clark as a fill in for me.

Probably Wilson and Samuel as KR.  I feel like I want the guy with the best hands to be the PR.  Seemed like Philly Brown was bobbling too many punts last year.  To me, it is more important to have the sure hand guy than perhaps the faster option with better juke moves

Seems like? He was. Jordan Hall muffed one or two as well IIRC.

Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson, and Curtis Samuel all have the ability to be great PR and KR!!!

I'd give Dontre a shot at punts and kicks, but I'd also think Samuel gets a good look at it unless he ends up redshirting.
