Starter: Phillip Dorsett, Jr
Phillip Dorsett will be Stephen Morris' primary target all season long, just like he was in 2012 when Dorsett finished with a team high in receptions (58), receiving yards (842) and tied for the team lead in touchdowns with four.
Backup: Herb Waters, So, or Malcolm Lewis, So
I chose both players because I believe if Malcolm Lewis is 100 percent healthy from last year's ankle injury, he will be the top player off the bench for the Hurricanes. Lewis is a terrific receiver that caught eight passes for 73 yards and a touchdown before he got injured in the fourth game of the season.
Herb Waters saw limited action in the first 10 games of the season, but broke out in the Hurricanes last two games and finished the season with 10 catches for 227 yards and two scores. Waters could start ahead of Lewis with a strong spring.
Starter: Rashawn Scott, Jr
As long as Rashawn Scott can put aside his immaturity (suspended last three games due to breaking team rules), he could easily start the 2013 season, opposite of Phillip Dorsett.
Scott possesses great speed and quickness, finishing last season with 512 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
Backup: Allen Hurns, Sr
Allen Hurns was the leading receiver heading into last season but was overtaken by Dorsett as Morris' primary receiver. Although he started eight of the 11 games he played in, he only caught 28 passes for 314 yards—seven catches less than Scott.
Hurns and Scott should battle for the other starting spot, but I think the coaches will go with Scott's explosiveness, eventually landing Hurns in a reserve role.
