Top 50 Mountain West players: No. 45 is Nevada WR Jerico Richardson

Nevada is known for its running game with the pistol offense but they do have some potential big time weapons at wide receiver.

The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is finally here and the 45th player is Nevada wide receiver Jerico Richardson.

The Wolf Pack have potential to have a good passing game with receivers Richardson and Hasaan Henderson and a solid quarterback in Tyler Stewart. What we do no know is what the offense will really look like this fall now that Nick Rolovich is no longer calling the offense. In the spring game the Wolf Pack ran the ball a lot more than they did passing the ball.

Last year, Richardson was fifth in receiving yards with 750 and also five touchdowns, but those numbers were not enough to land him on the preseason all-conference this year as this position is also fairly deep.

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.
