Boise State wide receivers to watch

Boise State's pass catchers are highlighted by a superstar Montanan and colored in by a cast of big-play receivers, possession guys, athletic specimens, and chain movers. This will make life easier on whatever Boise State quarterback ends up doing the quarterbacking but no easier identifying which Bronco receiver could have an impact year. I asked Drew and ce'sped azul for their thoughts. Here are those thoughts, plus mine.

Chris Potter

Every offseason I get super excited about Kirby Moore only to see that Chris Potter has worked his way above Moore on the depth chart. Well, this year, I am hedging my bets and predicting that somehow, some way Potter will continue his Vinny Perretta ways and keep a big piece of the WR rotation. Certainly, he is dangerous in space (we've seen him run slow-mo over, around, and past defenders on punt returns), so I could see the Broncos using his unique skills in a lot of fun ways - screens, double passes, Wildcat things. For some reason, I get the feeling that when all is said and done we will have heard Chris Potter's name a lot more than any of us expected.

Drew:

Troy Ware

It seems like this kid has been with our program for ages, yet we've never actually seen him on the field. That has to change this year, right? Ware, only a redshirt freshman, has a big frame and good speed. I think we'll see him early on in the year due to the absence of Geraldo Boldewijn and then see his role expand as the year goes on. I keep hearing about Ware's hands and route running, and with a wideout, that's never a bad thing.

Kirby Moore

You may know that Kirby still holds the national high school record with 95 touchdown receptions. After two year's playing, he's only 57 touchdowns shy of the FBS record 60. With the departure of Shoemaker and suspension of Boldewijn, the touchdowns will start coming Kirby's way this fall. I expect him to catch at least 8 touchdowns this year and have over 500 yards receiving (along with Miller and Burroughs).

Your turn

Which wide receiver do you think will have an impact this season? Other than Matt Miller, obviously. Share your thoughts in the comments.
