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.
