What is a possession receiver in football?


Is 5'10 too short to play high school quarterback?

Generically it is a wide receiver who can make a critical catch, usually on third down. The WR would be in a position to make the catch, and hang on to the ball for perhaps a key third down conversion.

This differs from a receiver utlized in a way to gain YAC, yards after catch. A guy streaking downfield, or running patterns in the open field is not a possession receiver, persay.

In short, it's a guy you toss to maintain possession and move the chains.
