The 10 best receivers in college football this year

A great wide receiver can change the momentum of a game in the
blink of an eye. Players like that keep defensive coordinators
up at night and are often unstoppable matchup nightmares for
opposing secondaries. They make a quarterback’s job so much
easier, giving him often much-needed more room for error and
the confidence to squeeze passes into windows too tight to
trust with throws to other wideouts.

 Three of the players on this list helped teams reach the
College Football Playoff last year, with one even winning it
all, with two others coming agonizingly close to conference
championships in 2016. Three of the remaining wideouts here
have been among the nation’s best receivers each of the last
two years, with one having just one career catch coming into
last season and the other poised to become his program’s
all-time leading receiver after three great years.

Some of the best who didn’t make the cut include Miami’s Ahmmon
Richards, Memphis’ Anthony Miller, Toledo’s Cody Thompson,
LSU’s Jonathan Giles, Colorado State’s Michael Gallup and Boise
State’s Cedrick Wilson. Here are the 10 best pass-catchers in
the country:
