Prowling The Roster: #18 WR Poppy Livers

We're counting down the days to Villanova's season opener by profiling every player on the roster.

CAA Football

#18 WR Poppy Livers

Junior, 5'6" 165 lbs.

Seaside, CA

2012 Stats: Livers had 20 catches for 215 yards, and 3 rushes for 68 yards. As the primary punt returner, Livers returned 10 punts for 168 yards, including a 66-yarder for a touchdown against Georgia State.

Depth Chart Position: Livers looks set to start in the slot for Villanova, though he'll face competition from Jamal Abdur-Rahman, who is returning from suspension. He'll continue to return punts.

How He Came To Villanova: Livers starred at St. Francis in Mountain View, CA where he caught 40 passes for 655 yards and 8 touchdowns during his senior season.

Expected Output In 2013: Villanova will continue to be a run-first offense, and Livers will probably see the few carries he got shifted to Abdur-Rahman, who is a more natural runner. Livers is a good possession receiver in the slot and should be a guy Robertson looks to as a safety valve. He's proved a dangerous PR man, and here's hoping he gets more opportunities to take 1 or 2 to the house.
