2016 in Review: Wide Receivers
Over the next two weeks, PowerMizzou.com will take a look at every position on the Missouri football roster. We'll review what happened in 2016 and look forward to 2017 both in terms of the current roster and the upcoming recruiting class. Today, we continue with the wide receivers.
Season Review: No player was more mercurial than J'Mon Moore. He led the SEC in receiving yards with 1,012 and was easily Missouri's top option with 62 catches and eight touchdowns. But he had problems with drops and fumbled three times as well. When Moore was good he was great, when he was bad it really hurt the Tigers. But he was the clear No. 1 receiver on a much improved offense.
By the end of the season true freshman Dimetrios Mason and redshirt freshman Johnathon Johnson had become the clear-cut starters with Moore. That duo combined to catch 71 passes for 1,022 yards and five touchdowns. Each would have been Mizzou's leading receiver in 2015.
Fifth-year transfer Chris Black had 100 yards in the season opener against West Virginia, but got little playing time on offense as the season went on. Among players eligible to return, Emanuel Hall (19 catches, 307 yards, 2 TD), Ray Wingo (5 catches, 143 yards, almost all in one game) and Richaud Floyd (4 catches, 94 yards) were the top producers.
