Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Brandon Johnson emerged as a solid No. 2 option in this game, catching four passes for 50 yards and a score, and Marquez Callaway took his only catch 37 yards for a touchdown. But the rest of the receiving corps was inconsistent at best. Jeff George hauled in the last touchdown of the game, but not before misplaying a couple balls earlier in the game. Josh Palmer was targeted five times but only came down with one reception, and he had at least one drop in the game. The tight ends were barely utilized, but Eli Wolf and Jakob Johnson both finished with a reception each.

  1. It looked like a B performance all around, it seemed you WR/TE and D-line grades were a little low. Fewer drop (maybe 2) and none by the TE’s. WR bailed out average throws by the QB’s (Palmer’s catch on RPO, that should have been a TD catch and both of Johnson and Calloway TD catches) Even George’s drop on GITMO’s second quarter deep attempt was an underthrown ball to a WR who was behind the defender.

    The D-line didn’t rack up many stats but three come to mind, they gave up one TD drive of 44 yards, gave up a long run of 13 yards, and 10 of ISU 13 possessions were 4 plays or less. It doesn’t matter how you are playing a team can create stats like that with average D-line play. I didn’t even mention 3rd down conversions.

    Go big Orange and keep up the good work
