Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 13

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sooners Illustrated continues on with its countdown of most crucial offensive players.

No. 13:

Player: DeJuan Miller

Position: Wide receiver

The rundown: Teams around the conference and the country better not forget about this guy, although he had only 15 receptions for 199 yards last year. That was because 6-foot-4, 216-pound receiver tore his meniscus just before the Missouri game and played only the first six games of the season, which were all victories. At that point, he was third on the team in receiving yards and fourth in receptions. In a full season the year before, Miller racked up 434 receiving yards on 36 catches. He started eight games and played in all 13.

Expectations for 2011: Miller will be back in business this season, if the Spring Game was any indication. He racked up six receptions for 62 yards, and one of those was a 16-yard touchdown catch delivered from backup quarterback Drew Allen. Miller showed the great size and cuts he exhibited before his injury, so that shouldn't be a problem. Look for him to have a very solid year and an increased role at receiver.
