The receiving corps will have new changes for 2007. First, the Noles have a new coach in former Seminole great Lawrence Dawsey. The second is that the most dependable receiver and route runner, Chris Davis is gone. Davis had 684 yards receiving and 4 touchdowns for the 2006 season. There were three receivers last year that made up the majority of the receiving yards: Chris Davis, De'Cody Fagg, and Greg Carr.
Although the Noles did lose Chris Davis to graduation, there are players returning with game experience. Led by seniors Joslin Shaw and De'Cody Fagg, the 'Noles have seven returning scholarship wideouts.
Outlook: Look for Greg Carr, De'Cody Fagg, and Joslin Shaw to be the main receivers this year. Others to watch are Richard Goodman and speedster Rod Owens, who sat out 2006 season following knee surgery. In addition, Dawsey will be looking at several players that were signed this year.
Needs Improvement: Greg Carr with 619 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns in 2006 needs to become more physical and improve his route running. All the receivers need to run precise routes and hold onto the ball. Dawsey will instill the fundamentals.
