2014 Oregon Football, Eleven Impact Players: Wide Receiver B.J. Kelley

One area where the Oregon Ducks have the biggest question entering the 2014 season is at Wide Receiver. With Wideout Bralon Addison lost for the season with an ACL tear in Spring camp one person that has stepped in is Keanon Lowe, a Senior who will likely become the leader of the group, but one player who could pay huge dividends with his speed is now Junior B.J. Kelley. Kelley is among the faster players on the team and has been with the Oregon Ducks enough to know the system.

However in his first two seasons he had just  a handful of catches in games when it mattered, in part due to his spot on the depth chart. He did have a catch last season against Washington State in the win over the Cougars. Now, with a depleted Wide Receiver position and a likely opening on the roster at the secondary or slot position Kelley should be able to get on the field and utilize his talent. I would expect that Lowe and Dwayne Stanford, along with Kelley will be the key to the Oregon Ducks Offense this season.
