With all the receivers signing with Michigan or already on campus for 2010, I thought I'd put together a handy "You Might Remember Me From Such Former Players As" guide.
When mgoblog says a receiver reminds might you of the following players, this is what they really are saying:
Any guy who can catch but has no jets. Projection: emergency safety
Tall, very tall. Projection: tall and awesomey
Tall like Terrell but can't run. Projection: tight end
Runs good routes, awesome name. Projection: runs good routes, awesome name
Speedy. Projetion: deep threat who can't catch
Spindly high school QB. Projection: redshirted deep threat who can't catch
Legacy 2-star. Projection: total flier
Returns kicks, too tall for slot. Projection: awesome
Wouldn't pull this out except for a golden child. Projection: All-American
Is a receiver. Projection: Diallo Johnson
Is 5'11. Projection:
Ran track. Projection: backup
Smurfy. Projection: slot, potential ninja
