Suprise -- it's LSU with the nation's top receivers
A look around the country at the best wide receivers/tight ends.
1. LSU Tigers
You would not know it by the production, but LSU possesses a greater complement of wide receiver talent than any other school in the country. Craig Davis and Dwayne Bowe each averaged 15.3 yards per reception last season. Davis is the most complete receiver on the team. He is tall with good strength and top-end speed. He should emerge as a special talent with improved route-running skills as a junior. Bowe will provide some big plays, as witnessed by his five touchdowns on 39 receptions, but he must catch the ball with more consistency. The missing piece of the puzzle for much of last season was Skyler Green, who was hobbled by a lingering ankle injury. Green is one of the most explosive after-the-catch receivers in the country, and his ability to play on the outside and in the slot position gives the Tigers options when it comes to getting multiple receivers on the field at the same time.
