How good is Walters as a WR Coach?

    Obviously PRich had gobs of natural talent but it sure seemed like he blossomed under Walters guidance.

    Now Spruce, who might have less natural talent, at least less top end speed, is tearing up the Pac 12 and leading the nation in many stats, with Sefo, a true Sophomore QB at the helm.

    I have heard some of the receivers, including Spruce talk up Walters but I am starting to think that Walters is not only one of our best recruiters but he may be our best position coach. On top of his own success in College and the NFL, you would think he will start to rake in some blue chip receivers.

    Thoughts?

    True although I understood Walters gave more of an assist on Fields but I could be wrong. Either way, I'll take 1-2 Fields every class including 2015.

    Someone needs to start. I like the Gordon and Falo pickups but, all these unrated and 2*s are worrisome. The entire class seems to be "a find" beyond Lynott.

    We need to be ready to match any offer that is given to him. With possible opening at UF and UM, new head coaches could be looking for a good WR coach, gotta be ready to pay him what he's worth.

    You're acknowledging the possibility of a coaching change at UF now? Before the season you said I was crazy with that speculation.

    I didn't see that Bama game coming preseason. His defense got absolutely smeared.

    Fair enough. Seat's gonna get real hot if the Gators don't take care of business on the road at Tennessee this week.

    Boyd, not sure where you get the idea that "Spruce has less natural talent" than P-Rich. Clearly the numbers say otherwise. I see two receivers who are tremendously talented who both worked their butts off to get to the top of the conference.

    We are also seeing McCulloch being utilized and performing like he should, his improvement is definitely noticeable. DD is a solid receiver now; Fields has gotten better from game 1 to now; Bobo is coming along... All of the players that Walters is working with are improving and are becoming more valuable to this team.

    Maybe RG/Mac2 should give Walters one of the long-term contracts to keep him around.

    +1. Prich has elite speed, but I'm struggling to think of receivers that were better at the actual act of catching the ball.

    If it is a catch in traffic to get first down yardage or a jump ball in the end zone I would take Spruce over PRich. If it is a deep slant designed to catch the ball in space and get YAC or man to man single coverage I choose Richardson.

    It's fun that we are actually able to have this discussion though. I was pretty worried when we lost #6.

    The university can only give 6ish multi-year deals right? I don't remember the exact number, but where are they being used now? HCMM, OC, DC, Tad, Lappe and who else?

    Didn't see it mentioned on here, but at the Tuesday presser I basically asked Nelson the question posed by OP.

    His response was along the lines of: I don't know if there is a better wide receivers coach in the nation... Whenever he talks I try to soak up everything he is saying.

    What made you think Muschamp could go to Bryant Denny and be competitive for 4 quarters?

    All the talent on the team, though it's young.

    The limit is on the entire University, not just the athletic department. I think Benson has a multi-year deal, or if he doesn't count the AD does. Only MM and Baer have it from the football team.
