2014 SEC Preseason Position Rankings: Wide Receivers/ Tight Ends

New, 1 comment

The best pass catchers in the league.

Stacy Revere

1. Alabama

Amari Cooper is a name you will remember after this season (if you didn't know him already) and he is joined by a group of blue-chippers behind him.

2. Georgia

The Bulldogs return the best one-two punch in the conference with Chris Conley and Michael Bennett, but don't have the depth Bama has.

3. Auburn

They bring in the #1 JUCO receiver, who is also on a preseason watch list for the best name in college football, D'haquille Williams.

4. Ole Miss

Returning Lequon Treadwell is key, but returning Bo Wallace is going to help this squad more than any other else in the conference.

5. Texas A&M

Malcome Kennedy is the only key returns after a 60 catch season. After that, they are going to rely on two highly touted guys that redshirted last year.

6. South Carolina

The 'Ol Ball Coach always recruits a good set of receivers. While this group may not be very tall, they are fast. Dylan Thompson's arm strength is a plus when you have receivers who can go deep.

7. Mississippi State

They return virtually all production at wide receiver from last season. However, like most players that go to Mississippi State, they weren't highly touted.

8. LSU

After losing their top two pass catchers last season, they signed the #1 and #3 receivers and #5 tight end. They'll be alright.

9. Florida

Two seniors are back and they have depth, so they can't be any worse than last year.

10. Tennessee

They have a receiver named Pig Howard. How the hell did he not end up at Arkansas? I digress, they're young and I expect their quarterback to spend most of his time on his back as they return no one on the offensive line.

11. Missouri

DoriaLOL Green-Beckham's dismissal means they lost their top three pass catchers from last season.

12. Kentucky

Javess Blue had a solid season, despite crappy quarterback play. He's easily could have been a 1,000 yard receiver at another school. They also return a former four-star receiver that started all twelve games his freshman season.

13. Arkansas

Hunter Henry is the only thing that keeps them from being last.

14. Vanderbilt

After saying goodbye to the SEC's all-time leading pass catcher, Jordan Matthews, along with teams second leading receiver, there is little hope for this squad.
