    On paper, athletically and to look at him, Andre Lewis should be an elite receiver. It does seem a waste. Unfortunately, he hasn't had the best hands out of position group.

    After last year when so many passes were dropped or intercepted because of poor mistakes by receivers to not hauling in "catchable" balls, we only want sure handed receivers on the field.

    If he works hard, puts in a lot of extra time improving his hands, he could make a name for himself this season. I only hope he does that because he has all the other physical tools most WR's wish they had.

    The Receiver spot is our deepest position on the team. It's no wonder why Whittingham/Christiansen/Roderick opted for Wilson as the starting QB. Wilson is the guy with the highest completion rate.

    GO UTES!!!

    Last year the coaches had high praises when he actually showed up to practice. From comments made by Whitt last year, it sounded like he was injured a lot and sometimes may have used injury as an excuse for poor play. Even this year the reports have been dropped passes and not always getting open. But I had high hopes when we recruited him last year. Hopefully he can break out in his last year.

    Tomahawk, playing time isn't earned from accolades before joining the team. It would've been great to see him make an impact last season, but I trust the coaches' decision that he wasn't ready for significant play, and I hope that he will be this year. Also, he's not the tallest, Tim Patrick is.

    Never understood why we haven't used this guy more. He is the tallest receiver and a 4-star recruit.

    Seems like a waste.
