    Most underrated player on the roster? Discuss. Oh, and...

    O/U on catches in 2013 is 55. Place your bet...

    +1. Apparently, Duff Man turns into a dick when it's 4:00 on a Friday and he hasn't had a beer yet.


    I agree with the bit about him being the most underrated player.

    May very well be the most improved player. Talented kid.

    PRich back will mean that Nelson has more space to work in.

    Having a QB who can actually throw a BCS level pass and a coherent offense to play in should help a lot.

    Seems like a bright kid who will take advantage of his playing time last year to know where to improve.


    Oh and under, but not by a lot.

    I have always liked him. Despite Colorado being his only BCS offer, the kid had a LONG list of offers from solid programs. That spelled good player from the beginning, without a lot of risk. Maybe not NFL upside, but still, a very good receiver. 3 more years will have him as a prominent guy in the records area as well.

    I'm going under b/c I think the ball is going to get spread around a lot.

    He's a solid football player. I'll go with 56 grabs, I'm thinking he'll be 1 on 1 quite a bit.

    Over, lots of short yardage passes will come his way.

    Rivals shows a Wazzu offer.

    It's a testament to P-Rich's potential that Spruce is a forgotten man. The rest of the receiving corps is a question mark but Spruce and P-Rich are a legitimate Pac-12 combo.

    Over.

    I've been pining for a reliable receiver opposite PRich.

    I'll go under. 55 catches is a lot for a #2 receiver. I'd love to be wrong because that would mean we did pretty well on offense.

    Two capable receivers can splinter pass coverage.

    You still need someone to deliver the ball.

    Going to make a switch. Over.

    Spruce had 44 last year, had it in my mind that he had 34 (McCulloch had 34).

    No secret here, solid possesion receiver. If Richardson can stay healthy, it' an excellent combo.

    Wood will benefit hugely from not being alternately screamed at or sulked over for not remebering a 100 word play call and not remembering what it means for his WRs' patterns when the ball is finally snapped!

    Under! HCMM will spread it around. DD Goodson and Jeff Thomas will help carry the load.

    I'm going under because my faith is still lying in a puddle on a field in Toledo.

    Well, I never really played the first time, so I'm trying to keep up. Wait, weren't you playing along?
