After Shipley, who's #2 at WR?

Ever since that November night when Malcolm Williams brought Texas to the brink of an undefeated season with two phenomenal touchdown grabs, the Horns fanbase has been enamored with his potential.  The next Roy Williams!  The deep threat we've been looking for!

The media guides are in love with him and crown him as a playmaker on the precipice of greatness:


"Malcolm Williams already showed what he could do with a whale of a performance in the loss to Texas Tech"-CFN

"Williams could pile up huge numbers if he keeps his head in the game"-Gatorsports

"Malcolm Williams is still a physical freak"-Bleacher Report

All the previews point to number 9 being the new star.  I see it differently.  Due to William's skill set within our offense I don't see him putting up these huge stats.  I find it more likely Brandon Collins AND James Kirkendall out-yard Williams.

This is not to say Williams isn't the best prospect at the next level, just that this offense focuses on midrange passing.  If Williams' role is going deep, he's not going to get a whole lot of looks.  Brandon Collins and Kirkendal, and Shipley of course stand to rack up the stats and praise.  I know they will get the ball.  But will Williams? 

I just see his role being too small within the workings of the current scheme to justify all the hype. 

Who's the most valuable #2 receiver?
