Thlete, that's my point, is that he didn't do much after getting
hammered. In a case like that, I'd like to see him hammer somebody back and
show a little more demand to make up for the missed connections. Am I wrong to
say that against probably either the second or third worst secondary Utah played
last year at BYU, D Chris should have had more than 3 catches?
The Utes will have a strong receiving corps next year and with Brian Johnson
running the offense, I expect to see DeVonte to play a huge role in the passing
game.Here's to a great senior season DeVonte! I hope it's
a great one.
At what point did DVC back down in the BYU game, StGtoSLC? He got hammered over
and over and just kept popping back up. Maybe didn't do much in the 2nd
half of that game, but it was all John White at that point as the Utes lit up
I think DeVonte certainly has the hands, the IQ and athletic abilities to
continue playing, but if he doesn't adopt a senior leadership by example
role this year, he's not likely to join the likes of Kevin Dyson, Steve
Smith and David Reed. He needs to be consistent in every game, instead of having
a couple great games like at USC, UA and WSU while the rest of the season
didn't show a lot of effort. Also, if a team takes as many cheap shots on
him as BYU did this year, I'd like to see him battle back instead of back
down like he did in that game.
Good luck DeVonte!
Glad DeVonte is on the team. His recieving numbers last season reflect more
about how often the Utes ran the ball, particularly in the last 8 games, than
his ability to catch the ball. But don't worry KH, I trust Whit's
expertise on NFL talent more than some broomster from Alpine.
@Broom Hockey Champ,Why are you here? To try to tear down a young
man who is having a successful collegiate career?Stay classy.
great coverage, Dirk. I hope Devonte has a solid year - he deserves it.
Why are all the Utes over on our boards and when there's a good story (as
good of a story as the Utes can crank out), they don't comment.Christopher hasn't really had any great seasons. He's a senior now
and he'll probably only have about 50 catches. Not a chance he
plays in the NFL. Not even on a practice squad.
