The Louisville football team returns plenty of depth at multiple positions from last season’s offense, but we’d be foolish not to acknowledge the wide receivers as the deepest of them all. While there are a handful of very talented wide-out’s, the two most experienced are seniors DeVante Parker & Eli Rogers.
Both have been impact performers...
One bright spot for the University of Louisville in the loss to Central Florida on Friday night was the play of junior wide receiver Eli Rogers. He had the best game of his season in the contest.
University of Louisville junior Eli Rogers is once again expected to be a major contributor for the Cardinals’ offense this season. Rogers played high school ball with U of L quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has plenty of weapons at the wide receiver position. Four different receivers caught more than 40 passes from Bridgewater last year. When it comes to spreading the ball around, I don’t think Teddy necessarily has a favorite target. However, junior Eli Rogers is the receiver that Bridgewater has the most chemistry with.
Rogers and Bridgewater...

Mark Blankenbaker of CardsandCats.com was at the Howard Schnellenberger football complex earlier this afternoon following the Cards Sugar Bowl practice. He caught up with Louisville wide receiver Eli Rogers.
University of Louisville wide receiver Eli Rogers credits the trust that he and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater have developed since grade school for the opportunity to make the game-winning catch against South Florida.
Eli Rogers played in all 12 games – starting four – as a true freshman last season for the University of Louisville football team. He was one of the top receivers on the team but isn’t getting as much attention this season. Cardinal Authority checks in with the sophomore from Miami.
