SD Ranking: #56

Chris D. Rucker

Position: Wide Receiver

Exp: Redshirt Junior

Solid player with the ability to push those ahead of him on the depth chart in the fall. Not expected to earn a starting spot but could place himself in a position on the depth chart for spring 2011.

Strengths: Solid athlete who has some game experience.

Weakness: Has not placed himself in a position of strength in the program.

Overall: Has the tools to be a solid player but must continue to work and push knowing his time is running down. Has shown the skills but needs to show the coaches he's ready to make a statement with his on field play.

Why He Made The List: Has seen the field each of the past two seasons but not in a position to knock out others ahead of him on the depth chart. Still should have a role on special teams and pushing for more reps.
