In order for an offense to find success, wide receivers must be able to create separation and make defenders miss in the open field. There are players that have the skill to do both of these, but are not getting much attention from Division 1 schools. I have identified athletes that can be playmakers at any college level and make their quarterbacks look good. Here are the most underrated WRs in the Charlotte area:

Silas is a good-sized wide receiver that uses his frame to be a factor in the red zone. He is always working back to the QB when the play breaks down and also makes the sideline catch look easy. Kenan has strong hands that he displays on contested catches against opposing defensive backs. He is a smooth route runner with crisp footwork and possesses a wide catch radius. Currently has a few offers, but still looking for a D-1 offer.

Washington is a speedy wide receiver that can take the short screen for a touchdown or blaze by defenders for a long reception.
