BYU senior wide receiver Cody Hoffman is already one of the most prolific receivers in the history of BYU football.  Entering the 2013 season, Hoffman is only 18 receptions behind Dennis Pitta from becoming the program’s all-time leading receiver. He has 203 catches for 2,718 yards and 28 touchdowns in his career. Last season as a junior, he had 100 catches for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Hoffman’s numbers are indicative of just how productive a player he is. He has already started 36 games in his career.

According to BYU’s official team site, Hoffman is 6’4’’ and 215 pounds. He has tremendous size and length for his position. He lines up in numerous spots for the Cougars and is effective as both an inside and outside player.

Hoffman is high on just about everyone’s wide receiver rankings entering his senior season. His size and production make him a viable candidate to have high on those early lists.

Hoffman has has the makings of a very solid professional wide receiver but also has some things to work on.
