CJ Carroll
CJ Carroll could be in the playing rotation at wide receiver this season.

We all know that Virginia Tech has three very experienced receivers heading into the 2016 season.  Two of those three are projected as high as first round picks by some people.  We also know that the Hokies don’t have much proven depth at receiver.

In case you’re curious about the production dropoff from Isaiah Ford/Cam Phillips/Bucky Hodges to everybody else at wide receiver and tight end, here are the career numbers…

Isaiah Ford (6-2, 195, Jr.): 131 catches, 1873 yards, 15.5 ypc, 11 TDs
Cam Phillips (6-0, 199, Jr.): 89 catches, 1080 yards, 12.1 ypc, 5 TDs
Bucky Hodges (6-7, 245, r-Jr.): 85 catches, 1056 yards, 12.4 ypc, 13 TDs
CJ Carroll (5-8, 167, r-So.): 15 career snaps
Chris Durkin (6-4, 223, r-So.): nine career snaps (all at QB or special teams)
Xavier Burke (6-3, 255, r-Fr.): one career game (medical redshirt)
Jaylen Bradshaw (6-1, 202, r-So.): zero career snaps
Chris Cunningham (6-2, 236, r-Fr.): zero career snaps
Divine Deablo (6-3, 208, Fr.): zero career snaps
Eric Kumah (6-2, 210, Fr.) Fr: zero career snaps
Samuel Denmark (6-0, 183, Fr.): zero career snaps
Phil Patterson (6-2, 180, Fr.): zero career snaps
Devin Wilson (6-3, 206, r-Jr.): zero career snaps

To sum that up, 23.1 percent of our scholarship players at wide receiver and tight end have 100 percent of our production
