Sorry if this was posted but it was good to see Tiller get a few passes yesterday. I think he will have a decent year at wr for us. I even noticed him getting some decent blocks downfield. Sure seems like a team first attitude by all.
I was impressed he got so much PT in a close game. Says a lot about the trust the staff has in him and probably speaks to our WR position needing to get better. I'm definitely rooting for him. It would have been really easy for him to transfer down or quit football all together last fall but he accepted the situation and made the best out of it.
QBs can become excellent receivers, I figure, since they know what the quarterback needs from the receivers. Austin Flynn was very much underrated in the latter McCarney era. KU also converted a QB a few years back after his freshman year, and they beat ISU every year he played.
I would guess the PT will go to receivers who do not drop passes. YAC and downfield blocking probably provide the next level criteria.
I think Jerome will be a solid WR all season long barring injury. Not Flynn caliber, but not far off of that either. I loved Flynn's attitude and production and could only hope for Tiller to be equal in both areas.
