I don't understand this as I really like our young wide receivers and would rather they get playing time over a one and done. Is this because he is a slot and we just don't have any other slot receivers besides the Florida state transfer?
Ellis is a slot yet he got moved to running back didn't he?D. Brown's also a slot guy, isn't he? And Ellis might play some there.
I get what you are saying. I think the coaching staff senses that this is THE year to make a big splash. Nothing after this year is guaranteed.
3 freshmen WR's coming in, would think all of them can redshirt

I am not sure where Brown naturally fits so I went and watched some video on him and he does not come off as a typical slot type of receiver.
I also looked at our roster and we are not terribly deep at WR if the injury bug hits and do not appear to have another slot type of receiver on our roster outside of Ellis.
