Auburn coaches still look for consistency at receiver

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

The Auburn quarterback race is neck-and-neck, and almost as close is the race for who will catch passes from the eventual starters.

Auburn practiced for two hours in helmets and shoulder pads Monday evening, and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee is still looking for the go-to receiver to emerge.

"Um, a little bit of inconsistency," Lashlee said after a pause when asked what he was seeing out of the wide receivers. "I do see improvement. We have guys that are playmakers. Now it's just a matter of those guys deciding they want to be playmakers every day."

Lashlee did, however, single out wide receiver Quan Bray as a guy who has "brought it" every day and was leading by example.

As for the quarterbacks, there is still little if any separation between Jonathan Wallace, Kiehl Frazier, Jeremy Johnson and Nick Marshall.

"You can tell there's a great carryover from the two older guys (at quarterback) in the spring and the two new guys are very eager. They're getting better each day," said Lashlee about the quarterbacks in camp. "I'll tell you one thing, our defense is flying around and I think that's really encouraging to the quarterbacks."

Auburn will practice in full pads for the first time Tuesday afternoon.
