ESPN.com has been releasing their position previews for the ACC recently and saying which team has the best group at each position. Today they previewed the wide receivers, and the “best of the best” goes to Louisville! Of course we already knew that. But it’s always good to see people from around the country take notice. Here is what they said about the Cards’ wide receivers:
Best of the best: Louisville
The move to the ACC figures to be one littered with transitional speed bumps, but coach Bobby Petrino does enter the league with an unmatched group of receivers. Senior DeVante Parker is arguably the conference’s top receiver and could be a first-round pick in next year’s NFL draft. He hauled in 55 passes in 2013, but with leading receiver Damian Copeland bypassing sixth year of eligibility, Parker’s numbers figure to increase. He could break the 1,000-yard barrier in 2014. The Cardinals return four of their top five leading receivers from last season when factoring in tight end Gerald Christian. Eli Rogers was effective as the No. 3 receiver last season, and at 5-foot-10, he provides an ideal complement to the 6-3 Parker.
