    Ranking Big 12 WR's ISU 7th

    Scout.com: Ranking the Big 12: Wide Receivers

    7: Iowa State—With the Cyclones, the quality of the receiving corps improves noticeably. ISU boasts big Ernst Brun, a future professional who could be the Big 12’s best tight end, and diminutive Jarvis West, who caught 31 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns last season. The other two starters will be Tad Ecby andQuenton Bundrage who snagged 20 balls for 232 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2012. The Cyclones like Bundrage a lot.

    Fair ranking; actually a little higher than I would have guessed based on the limited experience from this year's group. But there is a lot of potential. No mention of Daley or West; weren't they the two most highly rated WRs in that class for CPR?

    I agree. The write up doesn't even mention Mike Davis who is one of the top ten wide receivers to ever play for Texas.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I'm not really sure if we are improving from last year like the author said. We lost Lenz and that alone is a pretty big blow. And I hope Brun is a future professional, but I wouldn't bank on it.

    Odd that they start with a mention of Brun who is a TE, not a WR.

    His column only talks about "receivers" - meaning the pass catching core of wide outs and tight ends. Whoever pasted the title on it decided to use the term "wide receivers".

    I still think added length will help the receiving corp a lot. The taller a player is the less wide open they have to be when the ball is thrown.

    Re: Ranking Big 12 WR's ISU 7th

    i know something about k-state and can tell you that piece is worthless. first off, sams won't be the quarterback and they got the tight end all wrong as well. some of these articles must be written by iowa city journalism students.

    Probably should have mentioned Bibbs then.

    Not a great article but I couldn't find much when searching this morning for news.

    Author of the article writes for RaiderPower.com. Hmm, wonder if there is any antagonism toward UT?

    The fact that Sam actually throws the ball on target will doubtless help as well.

    I don't care how tall the WR is he still has to get open in this league.

    Re: Ranking Big 12 WR's ISU 7th

    My point is simply that whether its Jarvis, Brun, Bundrage, ect they still have to run good routes to get open and give the QB a chance to deliver the ball to an open WR. If you look at the top 5 WR's in the NFL last year, three of them (Bolden, Welker, and Crabtree) are all 6.1 or shorter. What separates them is their route running. Tall, short, fat, or slow they still have to get open.

    When I coach QB's I teach them to "throw the receiver open" and not wait on him to get open because if they wait they will probably get sacked. Of course, the WR must be on the same page as the QB and they understand each other. This hurt our past couple of QB/WR combos because they were never on the field enough together to build that understanding. Many will chalk that up to the QB being inept. I blame it on coaching. You can't expect guys to work out consistency when the coach won't be consistent. This is why I'm hoping they'll leave Sam alone and let him play through his ups and downs this year. That's the only way he'll get better to give the team a chance to gel.
