True, but it’s definitely a harder adjustment in college than high school. I can only name a few players in recent history that have been really successful on both sides of the ball (Peppers, and Adoree)Meh. I feel like switching back and forth between CB and WR should come relatively easy and is pretty natural, kinda like DE/TE. I think he was just a phenomenal athlete but had trouble finding a home.

And trick plays imagine a double reverse or flea flicker with him going up the seam...Yeah I can't disagree with that in special packages. He didn't have great hands but on screens or sweeps, etc he could have been devastating.
I was at Miami during the Hester years and my friends and I were always calling for him to drop 30 yards behind the LOS and just pass straight back to him. Simulated punt return.
I disagree that Chicago did everything they could for him. Watched a series of stories about cutler being a horrible teammate during those yearsCatching punts and playing wr are nothing alike. Hester was what he was , a hof returner. He should’ve been used more as a gimmick in college on o but that’s all that could’ve changed. Chicago did everything they could to make him more than he was. I know somebody who played with him for years, I’ve heard stories.
He was what he was and that’s fine.
I could only imagine the frustration y’all probably went through
