It's hard to believe that the 2014 season is already half way over, but it's true. We know that the Cardinal is 4-2 after the first six games, and we know how they got there, but how have the individual groups done? I'll look at several different position groups this week, break down what they've contributed thus far, and where needed give some suggestions about should be done in the second half of the season.
Entering the season I felt like the wide receivers on the 2014 roster -- Ty Montgomery, Devon Cajuste, Michael Rector, and Francis Owusu -- had a chance to be as good as any group in recent Stanford history. There was dynamic talent at the top (Montgomery) and enough depth that Kodi Whitfield, last year's fourth-leading receiver with 16 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown (probably the best catch any Stanford player has made in the past 25 years) moved to safety. With the continued development of Kevin Hogan at quarterback and the return of the tight end to the offense, I predicted a strong year for the receivers.
