Big Ten Football Top 150 Players: No. 94, Kevonte Martin-Manley, Iowa WR
94. Kevonte Martin-Manley, No. 11, WR, Iowa
2011 Stats: 30 receptions, 323 yards, 3 TD; 4 kick returns, 82 yards
Martin-Manley burst onto the scene as a reliable third receiver in Iowa's offense last season as a redshirt freshman, and he should be a starter this season. He's got good size at 6'1" and 205 pounds, and his integral role in Iowa's 21-point comeback against Pitt in 2011 (Martin-Manley scored the last two touchdowns of the game) shows his ability to make crunch-time plays. He was generally reliable as a pass-catcher, though his speed didn't seem to be showcased very often.
Martin-Manley disappeared from Iowa's radar down the stretch—in six of the last eight games, he caught one pass or fewer. Iowa's also installing a new offense under former Texas OC Greg Davis, and Davis' plans for incorporating the tight end may mean more quiet afternoons for Martin-Manley as the second wideout.
As Iowa's non-featured wideout, Martin-Manley should come close to Keenan Davis' 2011 numbers when he was in the same role: 50 catches, 713 yards, and 4 TDs. The catch and yardage totals may be too much for Martin-Manley to match, but his hands should make him enough of a red zone asset that five or six touchdowns should be in play.
