VIDEO: Tommy Mangino Talks Receivers

Iowa State wide receivers coach Tommy Mangino sheds some light on his group of talented receivers as spring practice progresses into its third week

Iowa State's most talented position in 2015 will almost certainly be at receiver, where the Cyclones will have weapons in ways they may have never before.

With a healthy Quenton Bundrage on the edge, a more experienced Allen Lazard and a slimmed down D'Vario Montgomery, the weapons quarterback Sam Richardson will have to use could add up to an explosive bunch.

"It brings a smile to my face," Montgomery said of the mix. "Every time I think about it I just think of what a great trio we could be as far as being on the field at the same time. That’s a deadly weapon."

Of course, that's theoretical. Iowa State was hoping to rely heavily on Bundrage in 2014 before a knee injury on the season's fourth play altered those plans. Montgomery himself is currently out for the spring after a recent knee surgery. If the group can stay healthy however — while adding in guys like Dondre Daley, Brett Medders, Jauan Welsey and Orion Salters — Iowa State could take a leap forward offensively this fall.
