    WR Position

    Assume we go 3 Wide with a TE. How do you see the two deep shaping up when we start the season? Here is mine....

    1st String
    Darius Reynolds
    Albert Gary
    Darius Darks
    Collin Franklin


    2nd String
    Sed Johnson
    Chris Young
    Josh Lenz
    Ricky Howard

    Guys that could play Keith Blanton, Jarvis West, and Jake Williams. We need to stay healthier at this position b/c we have the talent up top to be pretty decent but as we saw last year, when we get banged up the depth at the position isn't great right now.

    Re: WR Position

    Jake Williams will play a lot again I think. I have no idea how the new guys will be so I won't even bother guessing. Finding one or two consistent receivers will be the key to our offense this year. Arnaud will be fine if his receivers play better than last year.

    I honestly don't think that you can not play Jake, he had a pretty good year last year with clutch catches in K-State, Nebby, and Minnesota.
    This could shape up to be one of our finest receiving corps.

    1st String
    Reynolds
    Darks
    Johnson
    Williams
    Franklin

    2nd String
    Young
    Lenz
    Gary
    Howard

    this race is going to be wide open this year, all these guys will be playing at some point of the season, it seems like a corp that would do well in the north division and have the ability to do some damage, depending on how reynolds will be i think that he has the ability to take a 5 yard slant to the HOUSE!! Along with Sed injury free year young man! this is your year!

    Re: WR Position

    I'm not willing to count on Gray to be a starter until he shows up and shows us something. I realize that his videos are impressive and what not, but lets have him show up before we give a spot on the field.

    Re: WR Position

    I hate to say this guys and rip me for it all you want but if Jake Williams is starting for ISU next year our offense is going to struggle to score again. Sure he made a couple big TD grabs but he also struggled to get off the line a lot. Don't forget he wouldn't have even played if Reynolds, Sed, and Darks hadn't been hurt

    Re: WR Position

    Williams is our best route runner. If I had to wager a guess on how the rotations would shake out it would be:

    1st
    Williams
    Reynolds
    Darks

    2nd
    Johnson
    Lenz
    Young

    TE
    Howard
    Franklin

    Still think Franklin is going to be our spot duty TE this year if Howard catches on to the playbook. Franklin had issues last year being an effective blocker and Howard certainly looks the part from what I have seen.

    All of our receivers had that problem last year. I understand Darks and Johnson were often injured but Johnson has given no indication since he's been here that he can get off the line.

    It would be huge if one of these guys could come out of nowhere to be a Lane Danielsen or R.J. Sumrall for us. I think Darks has the best chance to be this guy.

    Re: WR Position

    Williams played the best out of the returning guys, so unless a newcomer beats him out or SJ/Darks were really injured all of last season I think he starts. I see Reynolds locking up a spot as well.
    1st Team:
    Franklin
    Williams
    Reynolds
    Gray/Young/Darks/SJ/Lenz

    2nd Team

    Howard
    Gray/Young/Darks/SJ/Lenz

    I think 6 or maybe even 7 guys will see quite a bit of time. Perhaps West sneaks into the rotation if he has irreplaceable shake-and-bake.

    Could be, but from all on-field indications, our offense will struggle even more if Darks/SJ/Lenz

    Re: WR Position

    I think a lot of guys see the field, and keep rotating in and out. As far as ranking them, d4nim4l hit it on the head.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: WR Position

    The coaches speak all the time about our lack of playmaker at the WR position. They go out and get a speed guy in Gary. By the time conference play roles around I will be surprised not to see him out there personally. And I know the coaches are still high on Sed Johnson despite his struggles

    Re: WR Position

    I think it is interesting that we are willing to put true freshmen who have never been in the system and barely mentioning Blanton and Jennert who have red-shirted. I know some of you did, but I just think it's interesting.

    I didn't put any true freshmen in my 2 deep. I think Blanton has a chance to see some PT. Still not sure on Jennert

    How so? Neither redshirt or true have played. Redshirts have proven to be behind (at least last year) the others. Although they could have improved enough to get PT over the returning guys, it is just as likely the true freshman could be good enough to play before them.
