Community Projections: Edward Britton

Community Projections.

Up Next:  Edward Britton (6-0/177) / #27 / WR / Junior

The Facts:  In 13 games last year Britton caught 48 passes for 631 yards and 4 touchdowns.  Britton was second behind Crabtree in yards per catch (Crabtree's 14.64 compared to Britton's 13.15) with more than 30 receptions.  Britton was 4th on the team in receptions, 18 receptions ahead of Grant Walker.

What I Think:  I've always liked Britton and felt that he adds something that this offense doesn't have, which is a deep sideline threat.  Britton was plagued by dropped passes, and although I don't have verifiable proof otherwise, I've felt that Britton was better late in the year in terms of holding onto the ball.  Perhaps Britton's biggest flaw, even bigger than the drops, is consistency.  To be truly elite he has to eliminate the drops, but he also has to figure out how to get open on a more consistent basis.  Here's Britton's catch totals for each game:  2, 3, 2, 6, 2 , 1, 3, 2, 7, 5, 7, 3, 5.  That's a 3.7 receptions per game average, and I keep thinking that Britton is better than that.  Britton is capable of more than 3.7 receptions per game.
