Kenneth Scott 6’3" 208lbs (Sr.) #2
Pros: Size, Hands, Jump Ball ability, Route Running, Ability to be physical with DB’s, Football Knowledge.
Cons: Top end speed, history of injury
Scott looks to be the perfect veteran. There has been a lot of speculation around K. Scott’s absence or lack of practice time during fall camp, I would urge you not to read too much into it. Scott is in his 5
Tim Patrick 6’5" 208lbs. (Sr.) #9
Pros: Size, Athleticism, Route Running
Cons: History of injury, catching inconsistency, lack of game experience, speed.
Senior Tim Patrick could be a huge asset to this Utah offense. However, there are a couple of issues that could hinder his impact during 2015. The biggest factor is that all indications say he is not fully recovered from last year’s broken leg. With that being said, if he is able to return fully this season, he has the tools to be an impact receiver on this team. He has great route running ability and the athletic ability to high point the football. While he lacks straight line speed, his route running allows him to create separation from defenders.
Pros: Speed, Agility, Experience, Hands
Tyrone Smith 6’4" 188lbs. (Fr.) #81
Pros: Size, Quickness, Hands
Cons: True Freshman, Lack of experience
Tyrone "T-Bone" Smith is a true freshman that has shined in his first fall camp. He is tall and deceptively fast. He has great body control and due to his basketball background, he can high point the ball very well. The only thing that could hinder
Kyle Fulks 5’9" 170lbs. (Soph.) #3
Pros: Speed, Agility, Route Running
Cons: Lack of experience, Technique
Fulks is thought to be the fastest
Pros: Physicality, Top end speed, Hands
Cons: Needs to play with more confidence
Young is a former track star from Florida. He boasts impressive top end speed and he has great hands. As a freshman, he played in 6 games last season after the loss of
Pros: Body Control, Athleticism, Hands
Cons: Lack of Experience
Britain Covey 5’8" 166lbs. (Fr.) #18
Pros: Speed, Hands, Agility, intelligence
Cons: Lack of Experience, Undersized
Covey was probably the most talked about guy in fall camp outside of Cory Butler. Not because of his ties to the state of Utah, but because he has impressed the coaching staff with his speed and how fast he absorbed the play book. Covey is going to show up in multiple positions this season. His only downside at this point is his size, however, he has done a great job at avoiding contact and making guys miss. If he can continue the trait against Pac-12 defenses, he will probably play more than any freshman this year.
Pros: Physicality, Deceptive Speed, Athleticism, Hands
Cons: Lack of Experience
Wilson has the prototypical size of a PAC-12 wide receiver. He is deceptively fast and he has great hands. He has good feet and great body control. Like the other freshmen, he has to lock down the playbook. Wilson is another receiver in the mold of K. Scott. Big, physical, great athletic ability and great hands. When Siaosi Wilson puts it all together, he will be a premier receiver, not only on this team, but in the entire league.
Pros: Quickness, Speed, Vision
Cons: Hands, indecisiveness
Bubba Poole is going to be a staple in the slot for Utah this year. He has had success as a RB which will lead to success as a pass catcher. He has great speed, great vision and the ability to make defenders miss. Bubba needs to shore up the issue he has had with drops however. Bubba has had a history of letting the ball get to close to his body when catching. I'd like to see him improve on catching the ball with his hands first. His only downfall as a RB was getting choppy feet in the backfield. When he plants his feet and makes one move to get up field he is dynamic. When Poole is decisive, he is dangerous. 2015 could be a break out year in his new role if he can correct those two things.
