PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Junior receiver Cordell Roberson has been named one of the top 10 receivers at the FCS level for the upcoming 2011 season announced the Sports Network Tuesday afternoon. During the offseason, the Sports Network breaks down the top 10 players at every position. While Roberson was named to the top 10, classmate Gralyn Crawford was among five other receivers listed in the 'Receivers on the Cusp' section.
Roberson had a breakthrough season in 2010 hauling in 61 passes for 1,011 yards. He led the nation with 16 touchdown receptions on the season. Roberson caught at least one touchdown pass in all but two games during the year, and recorded five games where he had at least two touchdown grabs.
