Position-by-position breakdown: wide receivers

Previously I broke down the quarterback position and then running back.

Tonight I look at the wide receivers for the New Mexico State Aggies, a position that has been bolstered....

Wide receivers

The Aggies have upgraded here over the past two seasons with a deeper, more talented unit in 2011.

Taveon Rogers was the team’s top target in the second half of last season and remains a speedy threat on the outside.

Turner, who will see him get carries out of the backfield and motion into the slot on passing downs, should provide maturity and toughness inside.

Two newcomers — junior college transfer Kemonte Bateman and true freshman Austin Franklin — have the look of athletic playmakers.

Tight end Jackson Kaka has been a do-it-all threat during August practices and senior wideout Todd Lee should provide veteran savvy.

Rounding out the depth chart is tight end Trevor Walls — who has the look of a pass catcher — and wide receivers Adam Shapiro and Joseph Matthews.

If Manley has time to throw the ball, he has weapons that can do something with it.
