A deeper statistical look on Gilyard

| No TrackBacks

Only two receivers have ever won the Heisman Trophy: Desmond Howard, Michigan, 1991; and Tim Brown, Notre Dame, 1987.

Just checking to see how Mardy Gilyard's season and career stack up. I'd say "pretty well."

Not saying he has any chance to win the Heisman (he doesn't), but he sure should have been in the conversation:

Brown (1987): 846 receiving yards. 144 rushing, 456 kick return, 401 punt return, 1,847 total yards, 7 TDs
Howard (1991): 985 receiving yards, 180 rushing, 412 kickoff return, 282 punt return, 1,859 total yards, 22 TDs
Gilyard (2009): 1,150 receiving yards, 16 rushing, 1,074 kickoff, 202 punt, 2,442 total yards, 15 TDs

CAREER
Brown:
2,493 receiving yards. 442 rushing, 1,613 kick return, 476 punt return, 5,024 total yards, 22 TDs
Howard: 2,145 receiving yards, 249 rushing, 1,211 kickoff return, 337 punt return, 3,942 total yards, 35 TDs
Gilyard: 2,962 receiving yards, 26 rushing, 2,450 kickoff, 202 punt, 5,640 total yards, 31 TDs (with one game still to play)
