Cannon and Smith Emerging at WR

It should be fascinating to watch Maryland's wide receivers all season. The Terrapins go nine deep at that position. There is little separation among the nine, and there is no true star in the bunch – yet.

Coach Ralph Friedgen said the wideouts caught the ball better Wednesday but that overall players are still dropping more passes than he would like. “I don’t know if that is fatigue or lack of concentration,” Friedgen said. “I am on their butts about catching the football.”

Friedgen pinpointed Adrian Cannon and Torrey Smith as players who have distinguished themselves to some degree. “All the other guys have flashes,” Friedgen said. “Ronnie Tyler and LaQuan Williams will have a flash and then drop a ball.” Emani Lee-Odai has been up and down with a bad ankle, Friedgen said.

“It’s a tough decision,” Friedgen said. “Whoever does the best job and makes the most plays, we’re going to play those guys. They all know multiple positions at wide receiver, so there’s some flexibility. They all have shown me they have their good days and their bad days.”

Does everyone have a favorite or two among the wide receivers?

It's definitely those two. Tyler would be the other guy because he had some clutch catches last season but we need consistency. I think Fridge is right where he has to go with whoever is hot and making plays. But Smith and Cannon should be the staples.

if youre talking about the guy who was a rook last year, he ended up with playing time db because we were too deep at receiver and had a need there last year...i was wondering what he was gonna do but i assume now he is still on the other side of the ball.

Good Counsel baby!!! go caleb!!!
