Can't forget Evan Spencer. Am hearing all the talk about Devin Smiths improvements & how consistent he needs to get. But the guy am really excited about is Evan Spencer, guy has football smarts & catches everything he can develop to be a real threat now that Stoneburner is gone. Be our 3rd true wideout.
With Braxton being a year older & a better QB I expect Spencer to be his safety cushion. Thus moving the chains.
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
Think back to the first game of the season against Miami when at the very end of the second half he went up ridiculously high to snag that ball a yard short of a td. That showed me everything I need to see about him. They were also targeting him for the deep ball the first 2 or 3 times of the game but braxton couldn't find him.
He made another freakish catch his freshman year against Akron(I think). Miller threw a ball behind him and he made a one handed snag.

Spencer is the one receiver who is most dependent on a QB hitting his receiver in stride, just based on the patterns he runs in this offense. If Braxton takes the next step, Spencer will catch a lot more balls. If not, Braxton hasn't made the necessary improvements and our NC aspirations take a hit. something to look for over the first 3-4 games.
That was urban's first game as well calling the game and he said it was one of the best catches he's ever seen.
I agree with most of what you are except that Miller has closer to 12 games to make the necessary improvements before we need it the most in the NCG. We can beat all of the teams on our schedule with the current Braxton Miller. I expect it to take most of the season for him to get where he needs to be for the NCG.
Also a QB making the neccesary pre-snap reads & scanning the field. Our Offense could be really hard to stop
That catch was awesome, idk which was better. Devin Smith's or His..
Completely forgot about that catch. That resembled devin smith "catch of the year" these receivers have some awesome potential
Why is he forgotten? There has been a lot of talk about him playing a lot this year.
Not really alot of talk about him
