Looks like a good 5 receiver set to me!!

Throw in a Jeff Heuerman as well....Braxton will have plenty of options

I feel like far too many people are sleeping on Jalin Marshall. He is as electric as Curtis Samuel except Marshall has a year of practice and Mariotti training under his belt. I think he is going to be a major weapon on offense this year.

I agree with that. Was remembering how pumped we were to get him...after a year in the system? Yeah I'm looking forward to that action.

I voted for him for the same reason. I can't wait to see him in action!

I'm glad there's speed, but ready to see the big boys step up as well.

I really think Greene is going to shine in this offense.

Mike Thomas. I believe it's his year. He has the added benefit that Braxton wants to throw to him.

I'm going with Thomas, but don't sleep on James Clark -- homeboy seemed poised for some solid contribution before blowing out his ankle.

I think this poll has a caveat and that is Braxton. If he can't deliver the ball to the receivers in stride, they can't possibly have a break out year in the passing game. If he can finally improve his accuracy, the YAC totals and passing production could be STAGGERING.

It's all going to come down to Braxton, threre's no reason we can't have a lethal passing game this year.

Thomas is on target to have a solid season, but he's been a spring sensation twice, redshirted one of those years and was a non-factor the other. Marshall, Smith and Dixon could also be regulars in the wide receiver rotation. But not all five of these guys is going to make a huge impact. It just doesn't happen that way. As for Jeff Greene, that's the person to keep an eye on. He was good at Georgia Tech (I know they don't pass a whole lot, but still) and he was outstanding in the first day of spring camp. His size, sure hands and underrated speed is something OSU hasn't had in a while. I think he'll be a household name come November.

Please put choices for polls like this in alphabetical order in order to alleviate bias.  Trust me, I took PoliSci 200.

Are you suggesting that practice is not important?

 

Just say no to italics abuse.

We are stacked at WR, Braxton throwing for 4000 yards this year!

I feel like Greene, Smith, and Thomas are veterans who should crack the lineup.  I really hope 1 or 2 of them do.  I'm surprised Smith has so few votes, as I only didn't vote for him by mental coinflip.
