While Josh Huff did not perform up to expectations that he set during his freshmen year, he still is the most experienced wide receiver that the Ducks have, and now, he will not be alone.
The Ducks will finally have talent to pass to. Last season, Chip Kelly decided to put a redshirt on two bright, young and talented freshmen wide receivers—Devon Blackmon and Tacio Sumler. Both of these players were highly ranked according to ESPN and look to make an impact on a wide receiving corps that has struggled with consistency.
Sumler, who was the 11th-ranked wideout in 2011, brings his incredible speed to the table. While he only stands 5'8", he recorded the best 40-yard dash time at 4.24 in his recruiting class (De'Anthony was not tested).
Having both him and Thomas on the field together is an absolute nightmare for defenses. He will be a deep threat all the time and can flat-out beat people down the field. He will most likely be used as a slot back and in bubble screens where he can catch the ball and explode up field.
Blackmon was the second-best "athlete" in his class, having been a dual-threat quarterback in high school. Like Thomas and Sumler, he's another guy who can beat people deep. He can get to his second gear in a heartbeat and possesses running-back type vision and lateral quickness.
Between these two players and the return of Huff and Rahsaan Vaughn, the Duck wide receivers will look to make a huge impact next season.
