Reggie Bush never quite lived up to the insane pre-draft hype he received. But to be fair, few players could have. He was one of the most electric collegiate backs of all time, tallying 4,470 yards from scrimmage and 38 touchdowns across three seasons.

Sure, he didn't quite live up to pro expectations, but that doesn't mean he didn't have his moments in the NFL. Take a look at what he did to the Minnesota Vikings on this punt return, for example.

There aren't many players who can make cuts as smooth as a prime Reggie Bush. That's just a ridiculous sequence of moves, combined with some elite top-end speed that allowed him to take this one to the house.

Bush carved out a nice niche for himself in the league as a pass-catching back and a threat as a returner. But, perhaps, he entered the league just a few years too early. His career might've played out a bit more favorably if he was at his prime in today's modern, pass-happy NFL.
