Richard Mullaney this past season fought through injuries to post 788 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 52 receptions.
The 6-3 Mullaney has excellent hands and he should become the Beavs' go-to receiver in 2014 according to Rob Rang of CBS Sports.
"Mullaney is nowhere near the athlete that Cooks (or former OSU standout Markus Wheaton) are but his height, superb hands and experience should help him emerge as the Beavers' top receiver in 2014," Rang wrote. "Mullaney tracks the ball well, showing good hand-eye coordination and body control to haul in tough grabs while getting hit. He has functional quickness and speed and uses size, hand strength and precise route-running to get off the line of scrimmage and gain separation."
Ten semifinalists for the Biletnikoff Award will be named on Nov. 17. That list will be pared down to three a week later, with the award presented to the nation's top receiver on Dec. 11.
