David Gettis is an experienced return man with great size (6’3″) and good speed(4.39). Projected to go as late as the 7th round, he finished his career at Baylor with 116 receptions for 1555 yards and 4 touchdowns to go along with 41 kick returns for 932 yards and a TD.

Gettis was picked by the Carolina Panthers in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL draft. The Panthers were looking to give the offense a complete overhaul and dipped unabashedly into the wide receiver pool ¬†drafting Brandon LaFell (2nd) and Armanti Edwards (3rd) as well. As Matt Moore and Jimmy Clausen fought it out to be the starting quarterback, Gettis battled LaFell in the slot. Gettis won out and started 13 games recording 37 catches for 508 yards and 3 TDs. He’d also haul in an 88 yard bomb against the Baltimore Ravens. David would be injured in practice in 2011 and missed the entire season with a torn ACL. While he did return in 2012, the Panthers were now stacked at receiver and reached an injury settlement with Gettis in August of 2013. The Redskins signed David in early January of 2014, but he’d be cut in May. Later he’d be picked up by the Bucs, and cut again. Currently he is a free agent.
