Wide receiver

While the wide receiver group could be one of the best Harbaugh’s had, it is largely unproven. Roman Wilson looks to be the steadiest of the bunch, however, had just 376 yards last season.

Cornelius Johnson has experience but had many fans calling for him to be benched a year ago before the Ohio State game. After that, it gets murky.

Sophomore Darrius Clemons has all the hype in the world. He also recorded one catch for seven yards last season. Tyler Morris and Christian Dixon were also solid recruits themselves, but share the lack of inexperience.

Former walk-on Peyton O’Learly could be the next Harbaugh walk-on to crack the two-deep, but whether or not he can truly hang is to be determined.
