"We have a chance to get Devin on the field as a wide receiver some, because of his athleticism," Hoke said. "He's a big guy. So, I think we've got all kinds of different things that we look towards with Devin.I'll add that I've also read that left tackle Taylor Lewan says Gardner has been looking "phenomenal" at WR. Denard says Devin has a knack for making big plays and he loves a big target. Obviously.
"I think Devin has grown as a quarterback, grown as a kid. I think that's a big part of it."
This speaks as much to Devin's athleticism as it does our great need for a tall receivers (and Russell Bellomy's ability at QB). With the exit of the graduating Junior Hemingway and the booted Darryl Stonum, whatever depth we had at the WR position was and still is nil. Roy Roundtree can't do it all.
This is both exciting and terrifying all at once. Should Denard go down, we'd lose our starting QB and maybe our best WR at the same time.
