    Jake Williams is such an underrated player for us, imo. He just comes up with big catches. He made the big catch against KState that should've tied it, the bomb from Tiller against Nebraska, and then the bomb from Arnaud against Minnesota. The guy just makes big catches in big moments, and he doesn't get enough love.

    He scored 5 TD this year, and they were all wild in some fashion.

    (1) Sliding/diving catch at Kent State.
    (2) Deflected sliding/diving catch against Kansas State.
    (3) Bomb from Tiller at Nebraska.
    (4) Halfback pass from A-Rob at Missouri.
    (5) Deep pass against Minnesota as the DB falls down.

    I was thinking this morning who the MVPs of this team were and I was thinking Jake and A-Rob for offense and Jesse Smith and Sims for defense. What The Shadow posted is why he in my mind, is the MVP of this offense.

    I recollect sometime last fall, CPR commenting that Jake probably was the fastest player on the team. Anyone else recall that?

    If so, with his speed, experience gained this season while demonstrating a knack for catching tough passes, he's a cinch starter next fall -- regardless of who signs on the line in February, isn't he?

    I LOVE Jake Williams...one of my favorite Cyclones. Very underrated in my opinion and I hope he gets some love in some of the preseason write ups next year.

    He is our only playmaker WR. I cant wait until we can line up 3 of these guys like most solid passing teams do.

    I cant wait to see him grow next year.

    I have more faith in him than anyone on offense. The kid is just a hell of a football player!!!!!! I don't care what his 40 or vertical leap is..

    He's our best receiver going into next year and it's not even close. It's possible, and almost likely that Reynolds will be that guy by the end of next year, but right now it's the walk on from West Des Moines.
