News: AL.com has predicted the potential UAB starting lineup and with no surprise, the top three receivers, all starters are Patrick Hearn, Nick Adams and Jackie Williams.
Analysis: While Hearn should become the Blazers go to guy. Adams is coming back from injury while Williams' 2010 was highlighted by a hail mary reception against Troy. For now Hearn is the only draftable option, however if Pat Shed were to miss significant time, expect more targets in the other receivers' directions as well.
News: UAB is looking to veterans Nick Adams, Patrick Hearn and Jackie Williams to work as mentors for fellow receivers Jamarcus Nelson, D.J. Vinson and Jay Davis.
Analysis: ![CDATA[While Adams is the team's deep threat, Hearn is the team's best overall receiver and Williams is still improving. Instead of making it a competition the coaching staff has set starters in place and let the team grow. With the wide open nature of the offense Adams and Hearn can shine with Frantrell Forrest and Mike Jones gone, so remember those names on draft day.
