Wide Receivers

No Allen Robinson? No problem. Lots of people, including myself, were worried who would become the go-to threat on the outside now that Robinson is in the NFL. The combination of Geno Lewis and DaeSean Hamilton has been a pleasant surprise.

Those two have combined to catch 65 balls for 997 yards. Lewis has especially been huge, as he made numerous big-time catches in the UCF and Rutgers game-winning drives. You’d like to see more touchdowns from these two (only one between the two of them), but they’re still young and are only going to get better.

Highly touted true freshmen Chris Godwin and Saeed Blacknall have been getting a decent amount of playing time, too.

Grade: A-
