Stretching the field is Wilson’s calling card.
Next up on our list of the Mountain West’s top 50 football players is the new number one receiver in Boise State, who happens to double as one of the conference’s pre-eminent big play threats.
Cedrick Wilson had 56 catches for 1,129 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2016. He was the only receiver in the Mountain West, and one of only two in the country, to catch more than 40 passes and average at least 20 yards per catch.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Wilson ranked fifth nationally in 30-plus-yard receptions. He’ll be a significant weapon in a Broncos offense that hopes to find their way back to the top of the Mountain West.
