Wide Receiving Options Are Good Enough
I have been in the minority believing the FSU wide receivers could be good enough to be a difference-maker on the offense in 2022.
All we heard from people that attend practice in the spring was such and such didn’t do this or that. They said they weren’t any good, but if you listened to me, I voiced these guys were talented and good enough to improve the offense in 2022.
That was a low bar, considering how bad the receivers were last year, but I felt the new additions would be a significant upgrade, and they’d help push the receivers already on the roster.
I’m right so far on both fronts. FSU has had two different leading receivers in their first two games, and both were guys who were on the roster last year.
However, both games have seen production from the three healthy transfer wide receivers. Has Johnny Wilson dropped a few balls? Yep, but he has made some huge catches through two games. Did Mycah Pittman drop(or DPI) a touchdown against LSU?
Yes, but he had some big-time catches too. Camren McDonald had a bad drop but had two huge catches on third down.
The point is that the wide receivers are not elite, but they are good enough to be in the upper half of the ACC. That’s good enough to win way more games than most thought (except for me) before the season started.
