If Steve Smith plays in game 2 then I don't think Cruz will play with the first team. I think they still like Barden over him, and of course Nicks, Manningham and Smith.
Just a copy of my post from the game thread:
Who is Victor Cruz? Well, he was an all CAA wide receiver last year and a two year starter. Despite the fact that a lot of these stories talk about a guy being the all-time receiver, Mr. Cruz is not. He is actually 5th all-time in receiving yards at UMass behind immortal names like Brandon London and Adrian Zullo. He is from Patterson, NJ and is already 23 years old. I hope he makes it. It does not seem like he was planning for an NFL career at all.
Adrian Zullo, the leader in career yards and receptions at UMass never played in the NFL, but did see some time in the CFL and hails from St. Thomas Aquinas HS in Florida.

I hope he makes the team and becomes a good player. But, it is one preseason game!

Yeah! There is something there, for sure. Is it too ask that he becomes Rod Smith? I don't ask for much!
Hixon had a 3 TD game last season also...
