New, 4 comments

Drew Lock struggled without his two top receivers last week against Alabama, and he’ll have to play without them again in the Tigers’ upcoming matchup with Memphis.

Depth chart analysis

Hall and Brown’s recoveries aren’t progressing as quickly as Missouri fans hoped. Drew Lock didn’t look so good in Missouri’s 29-point loss to Alabama, and while one could blame that on the quarterback himself, it’s hard to get over the fact neither of his top two receivers were available for a third straight game. Coincidentally, the Tigers have lost each of those contests. Saturday’s homecoming game brings up an eery similarity to 2016’s Middle Tennessee game, as Missouri will face a scrappy mid-major team in Memphis. Lock has been working more with his new top-two wide-outs for the past three or so weeks now, and hopefully for Tiger fans, the chemistry will show out against Memphis.

Richaud Floyd moved from third-string slot receiver to second-string wide receiver. Sure, this move may have been made in lieu of the Hall and Brown injuries. But he’s the most experienced receiver on Missouri’s roster, and a veteran presence on the field is important for a team that finds itself in a three-game losing streak. One has got to bet Floyd will get on these true freshmen pass-catchers this week in order to change the Tigers’ momentum.
