10. Collin Johnson, Sr. Texas
On upside and pro potential, go ahead and put him a whole lot higher than this. The 6-6, 220-pounder has speed, experience, and the talent to blow up as Sam Ehlinger’s No. 1 guy. He caught 68 passes for 985 yards and seven scores, and now he should be an even bigger volume catcher.

9. Jalen Reagor, Jr. TCU
He’s the weapon every offensive coordinator dreams about having in the arsenal. The 5-11, 195-pounder did everything he could to save a brutal TCU offense, catching 72 passes for 1,061 yards and nine scores, running for two scores, and dominating whenever used as a kick returner.

8. Bryan Edwards, Sr. South Carolina
It’s hard to get a whole lot of attention in a state with all that NFL receiving talent at Clemson, but the 6-3, 215-pound Edwards is special, too. He caught 55 passes for 846 yards and seven scores, and he’s quick enough to be used as a punt returner, too.

7. Justyn Ross, Soph. Clemson
That Trevor Lawrence guy had a decent true freshman season, but it helped that Mr. Ross signed on, too. The sky’s the limit for the 6-4, 205-pounder who catgut 46 passes for 1,000 yards and nine scores, averaging close to 22 yards per catch and destroying the College Football Playoff with 12 catches for 301 yards and three scores in the two games.

CFN Third Team All-America Receivers
6. Tylan Wallace, Jr. Oklahoma State
All the 6-0, 185-pounder did was finish second in the nation in receiving yards catching 88 passes for 1,410 yards and nine scores, averaging over 16 yards per catch. Lightning quick as a possible punt returner, and devastating enough to hit both Texas and Oklahoma for 220 yards – 222 against UT – he went from reserve to stardom in a hurry.

5. Rondale Moore, Soph. Purdue
He didn’t win the Biletnikoff, but the 5-9, 175-pounder was arguably the best receiver in college football. As a true freshman, he busted out with 114 catches for 1,258 yards and 12 scores, ran for two touchdowns, and he crushed it as a kick returner. Expect a whole lot more of the same.

CFN Second Team All-America Receivers
4. Tee Higgins, Jr., Clemson
There was promise from the former five-star get as a freshman, and then everything clicked as a sophomore catching 59 passes for 936 yards and 12 touchdowns. The 6-4, 205-pounder is the rare – could’ve-turned-pro-out-of-high-school talent, and he’ll be top 20 overall pick next year.

3. CeeDee Lamb, Jr. Oklahoma
Hollywood Brown might have been the flashy star, but the 6-2, 189-pound junior has averaged close to 18 yards per catch for his career with the speed and the deep play ability of Brown – and he’s bigger. Ultra-quick, he’ll put up massive numbers as Jalen Hurts’ main man.

CFN First Team All-America Receivers
2. Laviska Shenault, Jr. Colorado
He would’ve been a lock for the Biletnikoff – and in the hunt for the Heisman – had he been able to stay healthy. Even though he missed three games and was banged up in a few others, he still finished fourth in the nation in yards per game – averaging 112 per outing – making 86 grabs for 1,011 yards and six scores. He ran for five touchdowns, too. The 6-2, 225-pounder should blow up again with QB Steven Montez back getting him the ball.

1. Jerry Jeudy, Jr. Alabama
Just imagine what his statistics would’ve been if he wasn’t in the same receiving corps with a slew of other NFL receiving talents. The 6-1, 192-pounder won the Biletnikoff as the nation’s top receiver, averaging over 19 yards per catch with 68 grabs for 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns. Devastating however he gets the ball in his hands, he can come up with big yards after the catch, make the deep play, and do everything in between.
