Tortilla Pirate's STILL a bit Early WR Depth Chart

Alright!  The Red Raider beat writers have already chimed in with their assesment of how our depth chart stands as of now.  This depth chart represents who I would like to see step up and claim a starting job and becoming big time contributors to this offense.  Feel free to discuss.


Let's start with the inside receivers.  This is where the prototypical Texas Tech WR lives.  The Torres', Zouzalik's, Swindalls (though he's been moved outside.  More on him later) McRoys and Fishers.  These guys are the small speed guys, and the big but not quite fast enough for the outside guys.  Think of the names I just mentioned and think Welker, Amendola, Morris, etc...  Id love to see McRabbit run the fly sweep which Eric Morris used to run so well.  Id love to see Fisher sun slants and seams right at the weak spot of defenses and Zoo and Torres do what theyve always done and be the bedrock of the inside receiver unit.

This brings me to the outside receivers.  I'd like to see the tall wingspaned wide outs like Kennard and Moore lock down their spots at the outside receiver positions.  This would leave the outside spots with Seniors Swindall and Franks subbing in.  This would still leave a lot of youth and speed like Ward, Edwards and Corker to hopefully earn some valuable playing experience.  I will be interested to see what they can show.  This above all esle can really push the envelope of our offense.
