Default Deon Cain

Cain had 582 receiving yards in 2015 and 724 last season. Will he reach the 1,000-yard mark in 2017? Do you think he can best Mike Williams' mark of 1,361 yards last season?

I certainly hope he tops 1,000 because if he doesn't we might have issues. But I don't think he will top what Williams did last year.

Has the potential. But if Bryant stays the starting QB I wonder if that means less chance for big downfield plays. Harder to build yardage stats unless he picks up his after catch numbers in that case, possibly.

If there was an established QB like deshaun yes because he has the talent. To much uncertainty around the QB so my guess is no. I don't think he comes close to what Williams did. My guess is around 900. Hope I am wrong.

When he learns to catch/snatch the ball from the air, then I will consider him in the conversation with Sammy, Nuk and Mike, but he is lackadaisical in his effort to go after the ball. So, no he won't. I'd add Renfrow, Hump and Jaron to the list of football snatchers! Watchem! MB was guilty of the lazy catch when he was at CU as well, he's improved that in the pros.

I don't think he can reach those numbers because of the QB play. He will have a great year, but not the numbers Williams put up.

No, again due to QB play, but I also don't think Cain is quite as good as his predecessors. I think he'll be more of a 60-70 rec and 700-800 yards. I also think Higgins will get a lot of catches and yards, limiting Cain's opportunities.
