Although the state of Florida is slightly down on elite offensive prospects in the Class of 2013, there is still a strong group of running backs and wide receivers.

Florida is always a safe bet for finding some of the nation's best wide receivers Stacy Coley (Oakland Park, Fla./Northeast), Jordan Cunningham (Davie, Fla./University School) and Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) fit the bill from this year's group. All three players can make things happen with the football in their hands, and all three will be playing in the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game.

ESPN 150 RB Kelvin Taylor (Belle Glade, Fla./Glades Day), the nation's top-rated back and No. 22 prospect overall, leads an impressive group of ball carriers from the state that also includes Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage), who is No. 30 in the ESPN 150, and Florida State commit Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Pete Catholic), who is No. 34 in the ESPN 150.
