Was wondering why the latest depth chart had Smelter as #2 WR:EVEN MORE THIN AT WIDE RECEIVER
Wide receivers Darren Waller and Travin Henry will both serve one-game suspensions for violating team rules, head coach Paul Johnson announced tonight. Coupled with an earlier injury to Anthony Autry, that when Tech lines up against Elon on Saturday, no Yellow Jacket WR will enter the game with a career reception. In fact, it’s quite possible that the two starters could be making their college football debut – r-Fr. Micheal Summers and former baseball player DeAndre Smelter. Junior Corey Dennis is also a possible starter.
Has anyone besides Bebe and Hill done a 100 yard receiving receiving game? How many times each?I don't think there's an easier way to fall down the depth chart than allowing your competition to have a breakout game by not being able to play for something stupid. What if Smelter and Summers have 100+ yard games against Elon (which isn't out of the question?) Does Waller keep his starting spot?
so I think if one of our WRs got 100+ yards, it would probably mean he stepped up and we trusted him quite a bit to get 100+. Let's see what happens.Then its a negative. I believe that Bebe, Hill, Peeples and Smith are the only ones with 100+ yds receiving. Jeff Greene came within 6 yards of joining that club when he went 3 rec 94 yards against Presbyterian.
None of our WRs has ever had a passing QB throwing them the ball either, and while I believe CPJ will keep the play calling pretty conservative you have to believe our QB group will air it out a little more. Also with the way our receivers get yards 2 WRs could be over 100 yards on 4 passing plays. Either way Waller is leaving the door open to lose his starting spotso I think if one of our WRs got 100+ yards, it would probably mean he stepped up and we trusted him quite a bit to get 100+. Let's see what happens.
I would be since Smelter is not starting and will come on later.I'm honestly surprised we don't have more players with 100 yards receiving. The way our offense works, you need about 3 or 4 catches to get there. I wouldn't be surprised if our first offensive play was Vad-Smelter for a ~70 yard touchdown. Book it.
