Sickest, Deepest Receiver Core in Memory


Recommended Posts

Every single aspect of this football team should improve in 2015 but the receiving unit has me plum giddy. Experience should amp up the quality of this group and the added pressure of a running quarterback should allow for more wide open targets. When have we seen numbers like this????

 

Will Fuller. Already a star and a thousand yard, go to stud. Will had 1037 yards last year and he is only going to get better. He talked about adding muscle and beefing up for a great run next year. My biggest complaint was all the drops he has experienced. That will improve, maybe dramatically. Will is the leader and should have a monster year as he prepares for the NFL.

 

Corey Robinson. Look for a jump in his abilities. Had a couple drops in the LSU game but that is not the norm. He should atone for that as he continues to work on upper body strength which allows him to fight off the defensive backs that want to jam him. Had 539 yards last year and should be a nightmare matchup next year with another 10 pounds.

 

Chris Brown. Did you notice he quit dropping the ball. He had the chance to be the main guy but dropped the ball more than Fuller but has become very consistent down the stretch. He continues to get bigger as he was as skinny as a rail when he came in at 155 pounds. Now he approaches 200 pounds and he quietly added 482 yards receiving last year. Great speed, length and leaping ability.

 

C.J. Prosise. Showed up big in the LSU game with the longest run from scrimmage of any receiver in a long time. 220 plus pounds with speed and smarts. Gets open when the quarterback has to scramble. Can be lethal on the misdirection/counter play. A pure weapon.

 

Amir Carlisle. Best hands. Seldom ever drops a ball. Chipped in with 287 yards last year. Found his spot as a flanker. Great change up from Prosise. Experience is found everywhere up and down this depth chart.

 

Torri Hunter jr.. Only lack of experience is holding him back but you saw his abilities when he scored his first touchdown. Bigger than I anticipated. Extremely athletic. His time has arrived but there are so many bodies all deserving of touches. Deep, deep core.

 

Aliz'e Jones. He'll play as a freshman. You just don't redshirt 5 star talent. 6' 5'' 225 pounds with speed and great hands. He'll be that matchup problem like Tyler Eiffert was. Won't be that in line blocker as we have Lutaua to handle that.

 

Miles Boykin. Think Michael Floyd. This 4 star stud is 6' 3'' and 225 pounds and had some monster games in high school. With all this depth it would be great to red shirt him. Small defensive backs will be shielded from the ball as he rips down the balls thrown his way. Future super.

 

C.J. Sanders. I've heard some amazing things about this scat back of a receiver. Fastest 40 time in one of the elite camps. Great hands. Some compared him to Tate. Will be third string on that elite flanker roster. Plenty of time to mature but expect some huge plays when he gets his chance.

 

Jalen Guyton. 6' 1'' and very smooth, fast and great hands. Very good offer list including Oklahoma. Rather skinny but should have the opportunity to red shirt with this glut of talent. In a normal year this would be someone to get excited about.

 

I want to give special mention to Folston as he showed he can be lethal coming out of the backfield. I'm hoping he will become a favorite of Malik when he wants to dump the ball off at the last second when nobody is open.

 

Another mention is Luatua. He won't get many opportunities but since he will be playing look for this 6' 2'' and 265 pounds to be a bull dozer when he gets his chance.

 

One last thought. I saw the tackle eligible used in the NFL playoff game today. It went for a touchdown. I saw Oklahoma State use a 320 pound behemoth and throw him the ball. He was rumbling down that field. I now give you Mike McGlinchey and 6' 8'' and 325 pound (next year's projected weight) and I tell you this man has tight end skills. He is a very good athlete and will be our right tackle. If he comes off the block into the clear he could be a monster in the open field or near the goal line. Use him as a tackle eligible. He will shock you!!!

The only thing I caution is hopefully BK doesn't look at domerdomain and read too much into this thread. Remember what beat LSU. Tough running option plays. We can still get gobs of yards throwing from that same formation of run first. I just hope he remembers that. Or at least goes pass happy against Umass and lesser competition.

Right?

 

ND has one if the best OLines on paper in the nation. They have at least two very talented RBs. They have a QB whobis a good runner and good enough passer. They have many talented WR with speed to get behind the defense or play the ball control game.

 

Is there any reason we don't see a dominating run attack buoyed by quick screens and deep balls off play action to Fuller/Daniels?

And if that's how it plays out, than my dream offense will have come to fruition. We have so much speed and talent that when teams get sucked up guarding Malik and two very talented backs its downtown C. Brown and company. Sometimes the game IS that easy.
