Position Breakdowns: Receivers

In the third part of the position breakdown series I will breakdown the wide receivers and tight ends, provide a full depth chart, give the level of expected competition, and give stats from last year. We'll start off with the depth chart.

Spring Competition: WR 3 TE 2 (1(none)-10(complete))

Last year Chris Harper did an excellent job of serving as Collin Klein's primary receiver and sideline confidant, proving his worth as an ex-5 star recruit in games against EKU and Texas A&M. Tyler Lockett is also showing that he is as good if not better than his father and uncle as he showed he was effective through the air, in the return game, and against Oklahoma State, when he was unfortunately taken out for the season, on the ground. For Lockett the sky is truly the limit and it will be really exciting to see what he does next year. Tramaine Thompson did a great job of overcoming an injury early on and coming back for a great game against Iowa State, and while he didn't score very much he got quite a few yards. Marquez Clark apparently is not participating in spring practice but I would expect him to contribute right away when he does get to campus this fall. Curry Sexton did a great job as a true freshman last year and It would be great to see him continue with that progress. As for the rest of receivers it is entirely possible that they could all contribute as we went 6 deep last season, but with Sheldon Smith graduating and Brodrick Smith leaving the program it is also possible that the corps of receivers that were active around from the Texas Tech to Texas A&M games will be the one we see most of the season, so don't read into third team/scout team and below too much.

As for tight ends Travis Tannahill has done a spectacular job over the past 3 years, and is in my opinion one of if not the most underrated TEs in the Big 12. Andre McDonald is apparently in the dog house so Zach Trujillo is the second first stringer, but just from how big McDonald is it is hard to underestimate him. Also it appears that Gronkowski has switched over to TE and is doing a pretty good job, but he is young so he isn't too high up on the depth chart.
