Depth-chart analysis: wide receivers


With Georgia Tech’s spring practice beginning Monday, we’ll take a look at each position group and how the depth stacks up for the Yellow Jackets. Players will be rated as starting, competing or depth.

Tech’s wide receiver group comes back with both starters returning and will still have only one senior in the group. It’s a position that figures to improve through the competition among the underclassmen trying to move into the rotation.

Ricky Jeune: Starting

He led Tech with 25 receptions last season. He has good ball skills and has developed as a blocker. The challenge is going from trustworthy starter to great.

Brad Stewart: Starting

A dependable option on third-and-long, Stewart will have to develop a connection with quarterback Matthew Jordan and the other quarterbacks.

Jalen Camp: Depth

Having gotten onto the field last season as a freshman, he might have the inside edge on the No. 3 wide receiver spot.

Stephen Dolphus: Depth

The tallest receiver on the roster (6-foot-5), he made an impression on scout team last season as a redshirt.

Jair Hawkins-Anderson: Depth

Coaches are hopeful in the trio of wideouts from the 2016 class, including Hawkins-Anderson, who redshirted last season.

Antonio Messick: Depth

He has not made much of an impact in three seasons. This will be his last chance.

Incoming freshmen: Adonicas Sanders

Coming Friday: Defensive line, linebackers and defensive backs
