      Missouri spring football a look at the wide recievers

      The Missouri wideouts lose some big production with the graduation of L'Damian Washington and Marcus Lucas, but the talent pool is still filled with plenty of ability.

      Junior Dorial Green-Beckham is back for his third year with the team, and if he follows his progression from the previous two years, the sky is the limit. Green-Beckham really came into his own a year ago, as he caught a team-high 59 passes for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns - the 2nd-most receiving TDs in the SEC in 2014. But he's not the only weapon returning for the Tiger offense. Seniors Bud Sasser (26 catches, 361 yards, 1 TD in 2013) and Jimmie Hunt (22 catches, 253 yards, 1 TD) are back to provide further downfield reinforcements for the Tiger attack, and to provide leadership for a group of youngsters looking to make their mark as well. Senior Darius White is ready for his chance to win a starting job, a year after he caught 7 passes for 76 yards in reserve action.

      The former Texas transfer played in all 14 games in 2013, and will be a prime contender to start in 2014. Others who the coaching staff expect to challenge for playing time this spring include junior Wesley Leftwich, sophomore Levi Copelin (3 catches for 61 yards in 14 games in 2013), senior walk-on Gavin Otte and redshirt freshman J'Mon Moore, among others.
