Ultimate Team in USF Football History: Wide Receiver

Posted: May 23, 2016 in Football, Fun
Tags: , ,

Time to do one of the toughest positions to vote for in this ultimate team project, the wide receiver position. I put together a post a long time ago to see what positions should be in the voting and asked if there should be three wide receivers or two wide receivers and a fullback in the ultimate two-deep. The voting made it clear and they wanted to see three wide receivers on the depth chart. With that said, this vote is going to be a long one. The top 6, yes, 6, wide receivers will be taken to make the depth chart for the Bulls. It’s a lot to read up on and there are a lot of names on the list, but it will be worth it.

The top vote-getters will be the starters and the next three will be the reserves. Yes, there is a difference between slot receiver and the outside receivers, but I have just grouped all of the names together and will put them together accordingly. 

*first note, this poll is a long one, I know that. Vote away, I know its a little hard to navigate, but to get everyone on the list into the poll, it had to be done.
