USC Wide Receivers - The Never-Ending Depth Chart

The wide receiver corps at USC is made up of 5 juniors, 3 who have significant experience. Damian Williams has now one year under his belt in the USC system, after transferring from Arkansas where he played his rookie season. Split to the other side is Ronald Johnson who's 4.3 40 speed gives USC a serious deep threat.

Watch USC toggle between these two fantastic talents all season long. Having a deep threat is going to attract safety attention covering over the top, giving Williams more space for routes across the middle. And vice versa.

When Williams has the hot hand (which seems to be often), the safety is going to have to stay home, which will mean more single coverage on Johnson.

After Williams and Johnson, follow the speedy Travon Patterson who will be used on quick passes, end arounds, and sweeps all year long. If he gets into the open field, you can just wave goodbye.

Also competing for touches will be David Ausberry and Jordan Campbell, 6'4" 230 and 6'5" 220, respectively. They are monsters who can find the ball and come down with it, and both love to lower their shoulders and level linebackers and defensive backers alike.

Look for a steady stream of talent blowing in the saloon doors, but as in years past, Carroll will give a majority of the touches to his two starters, and they will not disappoint.
