    Top 5 receivers....

    Now that Money is down, who comes into his place? In my mind our current healthy receivers go (in order):
    Hamilton
    Williams
    Darks
    S. Johnson
    Lenz/Zitek
    Jones

    I wonder who gets the nod between Lenz and Zitek? Do we see some of Lonzie Range or Jason Carlson? IMO, it's time for Darks to step back up to last year's form and time for Sed Johnson to do something with that raw athleticism. Money seemed to be one of the more solid guys in this corps, and imo was outplaying everyone but Hamilton and Williams (save the last game). Finally, what is the possibility that we see Collin Franklin split out and made a bigger part of this offense? God knows he has the tools.

    What is the deal with Carlson??? I dont even think the guy has seen the field yet. He was supposed to be a stud but I've heard he flat out doesn't care

    Big whoop. This guy supposedly has legitimate 4.45 speed but can't crack a two deep when we run 4 receiver sets. Something doesn't add up

    Neither, Jones is trying to come back from a foot injury and Carlson had to wait out an academic issue for a time in August that has been cleared up for some time now.

    Williams
    Catlett/Franklin

    Not sure about Range. Wasn't he the scout teamer of the year, last year?

    Re: Top 5 receivers....

    I think Jones should be almost back to full speed...He was nursing a really bad ankle sprain and had it in a boot for the NDSU game and was questionable for the Iowa game...I've seen him walking on campus with no sign of a limp. Hopefully this is a game where he can finally play at 100%

    I forgot how many random situations/injuries go into who plays and who doesn't.

    I knew Money had an injury but somehow missed what it was?

    Re: Top 5 receivers....

    From what I have seen of Carlson, he has great straight line speed, but not very shifty and cant make a good cut or move to avoid a tackle...

    Re: Top 5 receivers....

    I think it is time for Darks and S Johnson to step up this year. They both appear to have the tools. 4 dependable receivers in a 5 receiver set is good enough....
