    Good points and an area where Sills can work on and become a truly elite receiver. Perhaps just a bit more upper body strength and he would get one or two balls a game that are being ripped away from him. Not a ton but I recall a big play against TCU where he had his hands on it but just could finish the contested catch. Tiny bit more strength like White and Jennings have and Sills will be one of the best we have seen perhaps. All four of these guys will see the field on sundays at some point.

    White seems to make the really tough catches and miss some easy ones.

    Jennings usually catches everything possible.

    Simms is getting better but must give better effort and stop dropping easy catches. You can see they are trying to get him on the shirt hitches to help set up the deep balls and he is getting better but his hands (concentration?) need some work.

    Minor critiques of a group of 4 perhaps as solid overall as we have had.

    Mex, I agree with your assessment. I like Sills a lot, like everyone else, but he needs to get stronger and get better at high-pointing passes over his head. If he improves in both those areas, he’s really going to outstanding. He doesn’t have elite level speed, but he’s fast enough for the position, and with a couple more improvements, will be as good as anyone WVU has ever had. He’s dropped a couple passes this year, but we probably should expect that for someone so new to the position. The drops have decreased as the season has gone along too, though I probably just jinxed him.

    I think Ka’Raun had his best game as a Mountaineer against Texas Tech. He’s not quite as good as his brother with the run after the catch, but he’s awfully good as well.

    Jennings is very dependable, and I think Simms has shown overall improvement. Before he was just a deep route guy, but know he’s showing the ability to make catches on intermediate routes as well. And he may be WVU’s most dangerous run-after-the-catch guy.

    Just my thoughts, many of which echo yours.

    Ka’Raun made an excellent catch on that front corner TD.  He seems better on the harder catches than the routine ones.
