4. MSU has two 1,000-yard receivers
Does Michigan State even have enough targets to go around to ensure two guys break the 1,000-yard mark for receiving? Honestly, I think so.
While the addition of Daniel Barker and the return of Maliq Carr to the tight end room will have an effect on the number of targets the receiving corps will see, I do believe that someone is going to step up in the place of Jalen Nailor, and then some. Nailor had 695 receiving yards last season but Michigan State will have an even more productive WR2 this year.
The big question here is, will it be Keon Coleman or Tre Mosley along with Jayden Reed?
If you asked Coleman, he’d probably tell you it’ll be him. He’s projecting a breakout season for himself and he has told everyone to buy stock now. He has the ability to reach 1,000 and will be a matchup nightmare for defenses.
Mosley is the quiet assassin. He’s never going to get too high or too low but he’s as solid as any receiver I can remember. He just gets the job done and he’ll build on that 530-yard season from a year ago. He could very well double his numbers with more targets.
Either way, Michigan State gets two with Reed and then Coleman or Mosley.
