Re: Wes Welker Is Fun To Watch

Welker started his football career at Heritage Hall High School in Oklahoma City. In 1998 he was named The Daily Oklahoman All-State Player of the Year and Oklahoma State Player of the Year by USA Today. Welker was not recruited much as he was considered to be too small to play at the college level. However, after a recruit at Texas Tech University backed out of his scholarship, it was offered to Welker. He is currently tied for the record of most punt returns for a touchdown in NCAA football history, with eight.

After his senior season at Texas Tech, Welker went undrafted in the 2004 National Football League Draft but ended up signing a free agent contract with the San Diego Chargers where he made the team. However, after the first week of the 2004 season, Welker was cut from the Chargers and signed with the Miami Dolphins, where he was mostly used in special teams. The same season Welker became the second player in NFL history to return a kickoff, return a punt, kick an extra point and a field goal, and make a tackle in the same game.

During training camp at the beginning of the 2005 season, Welker was promoted to the third wide receiver spot after Chris Chambers and Marty Booker. He finished the season with 29 receptions for 434 yards and no touchdowns. He also had 43 punt returns for 390 yards, a 9.1 average, and 61 kickoff returns for 1379 yards, a 22.6 average. These ranked 11th and 20th in the NFL, respectively
