Ranking the Wide Receiving Corps IU's Defense Will Face in 2018

Ranking the Wide Receiving Corps IU's Defense Will Face in 2018

Written By Nathan Comp

We continue to examine Indiana’s 2018 opponents as we draw closer to the beginning of the season on September 1st at Florida International. Today we will preview Indiana opponent’s wide receivers. Receiver can be an interesting position to analyze because quarterback play has so much to do with receiver statistics. Historically, wide receiver has been a position the Big Ten has struggled to produce first-round NFL talent; the Big Ten has only had two receivers taken in the first round of the NFL Draft since 2007, including this past year when Maryland’s DJ Moore was selected 24th overall to the Carolina Panthers. Nonetheless, this is how we see the talent stacking up for the 2018 season.

The Hoosiers close out September with a trip to Piscataway, NJ to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The Hoosiers have won the last two against Rutgers, including a 41-0 blow out last November. Overall, the Hoosiers are 2-2 against the Scarlet Knights and 2018 marks their third trip to Rutgers since the Scarlet Knights joined the conference in 2014. This is an important swing game for both programs, a win here would go a long way for the bowl hopes of both teams.

Dynamic athlete Reese Taylor and his Ben Davis Giants dominated their opponents throughout the 2017 season.

Reese Taylor won Indiana’s Mr. Football award in a landslide. He was lauded as a great competitor and a great teammate and he is now in Bloomington ready for a new challenge.

How Indiana's 2018 Opponents' Rushing Attacks Stack Up

How Indiana's 2018 Opponents' Rushing Attacks Stack Up

Written by: TJ Inman (@TJHoosierHuddle)

Any list or ranking done by a human is bound to be somewhat subjective. While I may have a strong opinion about one player being better than another, many of the players (and groups of players) on this list have very little to separate them from the man placed a spot higher or lower than they are. There are also many factors that greatly impact the way we perceive a player. Things like offensive line, offensive system and the quality of the skill position players around him are all critical factors that matter greatly to how successful the individual can be. That’s why football is often considered the ultimate team sport. Taking those things into consideration, one of our regular offseason features at the Hoosier Huddle is to rank Indiana’s opponents by each critical position group. Keep in mind, I am ranking the running back group as a whole, not just one individual running back (in reality, the offensive lines are inherently considered as well). This is my list and these are my opinions, we’d love to hear what you think so please share your thoughts in the comments section!
