Daje at receiver, it makes more sense.


Daje Johnson is a gifted and special athlete. I don't think that anyone will disagree with that. He's the type of player that can take over and change a game. His athletic prowess brings to mind other longhorns like Vince Young and Marquis Goodwin. They make the defenders chasing them look like their running with concrete shoes on. When these kind of guys step on the field, it brings the team to a different level. The rest of the players have more confidence in knowing that even if their trailing in the game, they have the most explosive player on either team. The kind of player that we probably won't have for his senior year . And who can blame them?

Am I the only one who thinks that he should be playing wide out? Here's my reasoning. We have three exceptional running backs already. Statistics say that there is a greater chance of injury at running back. He's more likely to break one if he gets the ball in open space. An offense with Daje, Mike Davis, and Jaxon Shipley as receivers and a r.b. tandem of Malcolm Brown and Johnathan Gray (with a talented Joe Bergeron as well). And I'm not going to entertain the Jalen Overstreet or Tyrone Swoopes topic. So I'll finish the skill position list with a healthy David Ash or the Case McCoy that showed up at the Cotton Bowl. I don't know if I would trade that group with any team in the big 12. Who else has a group of skill players that can match that? Daje needs to get more touches on offense. At some point we are going to need an explosive play to fire up the team and deflate an opposing defense, and their crowd. Daje is the guy to deliver it. Don't get me wrong, if we needed a r.b., then it's a different story. At any rate, I'm glad that we can finally talk about these type of topics. I'm glad the mob has dispersed, even if only temporarily.
