Johnson is a very promising freshman with good size at 6'1" and very respectable 4.4 speed on the outside. The main problem with Johnson is that he is not an accomplished underneath route-runner, and there is not a lot of room within the offense to throw it to him deep. He comes in as a backup, but could see action in the screen and return games.
After a promising start to 2011, Harris' career has taken a hit after a foot injury caused him to miss 10 games and half of the spring. At 6'3" and 211 lbs, Harris still has great potential as wideout but unfortunately looks like he could be a career backup.
Converted wide receiver Kendall Sanders has a ton of potential at the wide receiver position. He is fast (runs a 4.4 40), good size (6'1" and room to add muscle), and is a very natural pass-catcher. However, he is a converted cornerback and has had little to no experience playing receiver. Sanders will take some time to develop but could end up filling Goodwin's role in the slot as early as next season.
It has been the same old song and dance for the senior Hales, who once again has had another solid offseason. Spring and summer have never been the issue for Hales. It is performing in the fall that has plagued his entire career. The coaches seem to have lost patience with Hales, and he will have to earn every single second of playing time he gets this season over this crop of talented freshmen.
Onyegbule saw some action as a freshman last season, but a torn pectoral that will keep him out until August makes 2012 a gigantic question mark for him. That said, he will probably be redshirted and have his role reevaluated once he returns. At 6'4" and 216 lbs, he could be headed for a role as either an H-back or possibly a pass-catching tight end.
Jackson was moved from corner to wide receiver prior to last season when Marquise Goodwin was thought not to return to the team. Goodwin returned, and Jackson was relegated to a backup/special teams role, where he will likely spend the rest of his career.
