2011 Georgia State Football Roster: Danny Williams, Sidney Haynes Lead Loaded WR Corps

In Part 3 of our pre-spring depth chart look for the Georgia State Panthers, we take a look at the best unit on either side of the ball in 2010. Asst. Head Coach/WR Coach George Pugh boasts a unit that returns 133 catches for 1674 yards and 13 TDs.

Analysis
When the Panthers run a 3 WR, 1 RB set, they are truly most dangerous spreading the field. 8 different players at the WR position caught passes in 2010 and all of them return for 2011. Danny Williams looked like a young Ed McAffrey at times last season making spectacular catches look routine. This unit is rock solid and considering Jordan Giles played the final 6 games of the year with basically 4 fingers, this unit again looks to perform at a high level again in 2011. Look for increased production and deeper throws as Williams, Haynes and Albert Wilson, who scored the lone TD vs. Alabama on an KR, strech the field vertically.

Tight End
Senior Arthur ‘Bully’ Williams
RS Sophomore Emmanuel Ogbuehi
RS Senior Bailey Woods
RS Freshman Drew Pearson

Analysis
When the Panther utilize their 2 TE set, they add two very sure handed weapons. Williams caught 16 passes for 164 yards and 3 TDs and had one of the most impressive highlights of the season as he caught a short swing pass and dragged a Morehead State defender nearly 10 yards into the endzone. Ogbuehi is an amazing find by the coaching staff and was actually a preferred walk on who earned a scholarship in 2010. Woods contribute mostly on special teams and is not an offensive contributor and Pearson could see some reps this season as he took a RS in 2010.
