The Five Biggest Surprises of 2007: #4 Nate Jones

New, comments

This series got a little sidetracked with OMG Major hysteria, but we'll pick up where we left off with the five biggest surprises and disappointments of 2007.

Opposite Finley's relatively disappointing season was fifth-year senior Nate Jones' outstanding season. The often forgotten fifth receiver in 2006, Jones picked up some of the slack created by Sweed's injury with a 70-catch, 795 yard season, including 5 touchdowns.

Though his average yards per catch (11.4) wasn't anything special, he admirably combined with Quan Cosby to give Colt McCoy two very dependable, consistent possession receivers. To lead the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns in 2007 exceeded even the most optimistic of projections.
