Individual Wide Receiver Rankings

by -

1) Calvin Johnson - This is a no contest. Johnson is miles ahead of any other receiver in the league. The 6-4 225 pound freak of nature can single handedly win games for the Yellow Jackets. He has amazing ball skills and runs very well for his size.

2) Lance Leggett - Leggett showed flashes last season of becoming a very dangerous target for Miami. He should be much improved in his sophomore season. Expect Leggett to quickly become Kyle Wright's favorite target.

3) Jawarski Pollock - Pollock was the favorite target of Darian Durant. He has very good speed and probably the second best pair of hands in the league. Pollock is a polished route runner, who seemingly gets open on every route.

4) Eddie Royal - Expect Royal to have a breakout season. With Marcus Vick's ability to move around in the pocket, Royal will be a terror for opposing secondarys to cover. Royal is probably the most dangerous open field runner in the conference. He played very well down the stretch for the Hokies and will benefit from having fellow sophomores Josh Hyman and Josh Morgan.

5 Willie Reid - Reid is as talented as any receiver in the league, excluding Johnson. Injuries have held Reid back, but when healthy he has made some big splashes with the Seminoles. He is the only experienced receiver the Seminoles have returning, and he could have a breakout year similiar to the year Airese Currie had for Clemson in 2004.
