Which receivers do you think will start for Vandy in 2010? Vote in our new poll!

Today we took down our poll asking which freshman receiver has the best chance to start for the Commodores in 2010. Bradley Roby was the runaway winner with 70 percent of the vote, followed by Chris Boyd and Jonathan Krause in a very distant second and third.

Of course, Roby recently switched his verbal commitment from Vandy to Ohio State, which makes the poll obsolete.

So we've got a new poll: By the end of the 2010 season, which wide receivers will have started for Vanderbilt? Obviously, you can vote for multiple players.

Here are the possibilities:

• Returning starters John Cole, a redshirt sophomore, and Udom Umoh, a redshirt junior.
• Redshirt junior utility man Jamie Graham, who's a natural at defensive back, but who can forget those end zone jump-ball grabs in 2008?
• Redshirt junior Tray Herndon and redshirt senior Turner Wimberly, who saw quite a bit of playing time in 2009 but didn't make much of a splash.
• Sophomore Brady Brown, a blue-chipper who played last season but didn't catch a pass, and redshirt sophomore Akeem Dunham, a gifted athlete who's still learning to play football. If you're wondering, Collin Ashley is no longer listed on the roster and has reportedly left school.
• Walk-ons Charlie Byrge and Jameson Sackey, who are both redshirt sophomores.
• True freshmen Chris Boyd, Trent Pruitt, Jonathan Krause and Jordan Matthews. A fifth, athlete Jerrell Priester, sometimes enters conversations about receivers but is listed as a running back and could end up as a corner.

Let me know if I'm leaving anybody out or if you think somebody else should be lining up at receiver — like Golden Tate's little brother Wesley or another of the running backs or maybe a defensive back such as Eric Samuels or Eddie Foster.
