I believe by season’s end, as well as the next few years, people will speak about FSU’s receiving core highly again. FSU wide receivers coach David Kelly has some young bulls in his unit who are going to come in hungry. That youthful energy needs guidance and should motivate Murray to be even more competitive.
FSU hasn’t had a receiver with over 10 touchdowns since the national championship season of 2013 with Kelvin Benjamin; that team also had three others with over six TDs along with three receivers with over 900 yards.
Competitive receivers lead to better QB play and a high powered offense. I believe Murray has the potential to be a more explosive version of Rashad Greene who Benjamin and Kenny Shaw were able to feed off of. Anytime FSU’s offense has been high-powered they’ve had a trio of receivers who could make THE play at any given time.
