The Minnesota Golden Gophers return a lot of experience on the offensive side of the ball.

The receiver corp, however, is filled with question marks. There are several players vying for playing time at both wide receiver and tight end.

The wide receiver is especially filled with question marks.

The Gophers would have liked to have these questions answered in the five games after Eric Decker went down with the foot injury. Unfortunately, the question marks have potential answers, but very little certainty.

Who will be Adam Weber or MarQueis Gray's favorite target? Who will develop into a good complimentary receiver? Who will be a big-play threat? Who wil be a reliable receiver on third down to move the sticks?

The tight end position is more congested, but is more defined as well.

Eric Lair and Tiree Eure will handle the passing situations and Curtis Hughes will handle the blocking.
