Dennis made the switch from cornerback to wide receiver last summer, but it didn’t make much of a difference when it came time to see the field. He played in twelve games last season, but it was exclusively on special teams. So far in three seasons on campus, he has not played on offense or defense.
Darrius Clemons reported to Sam Webb that Dennis is the fastest player on the team, but whether that translates to actually playing receiver at all, we’ll have to see. For now I’m going to assume that Dennis’s main role will continue to be on special teams coverage. There’s been no buzz about his ability to contribute at receiver or on kickoff/punt returns. Special teams players have some value, of course, but his upside for the team overall is limited unless he can play offense or defense.
Prediction: Backup wide receiver and special teamer
