Reggie Bush Viewed As A Versatile Playmaker

While Reggie Bush has not been as electrifying as he was when he played at USC, there's no denying that he is a very versatile running back. His pure athleticism always has defensive coordinators on guard, not wanting to allow the big play out of the backfield, be it on a run or a screen pass. Gary Horton of listed Bush as one of the 10 most versatile players in the AFC.

He is a dynamic player in almost every aspect of this offense and under new creative head coach Joe Philbin his contributions will expand. He had 1,086 yards on the ground in 2011, added 43 receptions and really got hot at the end of the season. He can still contribute as a returner in the kicking game, but with his heavier workload, he needs help in that area. Getting him the ball in space and on the edges is always a goal, but Bush runs between the tackles more effectively than you might think.

While there could be concerns about his durability given a heavier work load, Bush is a running back that can cause fits for just about anyone if given enough space.
