Black rank in the WRs that are healthy as far as talent, iyo?
Is he a top 3 based solely on talent?
He is definitely up there, not sure if he is top 3 yet, but he definitely would have been in the thick of the rotation this season. Much like Cooper, he runs good routes and has great hands. Still not sure that the staff will burn his red shirt though.

He is a Maze type--cat quick-- with better ball skills when comparing to MM's frosh/soph years. I really think that if Chris had not suffered the injury he would be strong in the rotation and likely handling our punt return duties.
Our favorite ESPN recruiting analyst on a local radio show said not too long ago this morning that Black is the most explosive of the bunch. He said of course Cooper is the best all around receiver but explosive plays is what Black brings to the table. He did go on to say the question - is he in football shape, both physically and mentally because that would be the issue coming into this part of the season. But I say on the other hand if his best attribute is explosion, WOW...he and Coop on one side running some type of crossing route sending one short and one long - or like last week sending both deep one down the seem and one down the center of the field slanting to the far corner???? Who covers them?
I don't think we need him to come in and be a every down receiver. Can he come in, run the routes well, and break down the defense allowing either himself to catch a pass or open it up for coop or Norwood? IF he's in any kind of decent shape - I say YES he can.
