Mike Wallace, Ole Miss
Wallace is one of the most explosive receivers in the league. He has taken 32 of his 235 receptions for touchdowns and is averaging 17.2 yards per reception in his career. Now that he is being paid like a No. 1 receiver by the Miami Dolphins, he will have a chance to emerge as an elite wide receiver.
Julio Jones, Alabama
Jones has emerged as a top-tier receiver in just two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He has caught 133 passes for 2,157 yards and 18 touchdowns. He has the opportunity to become really special if he can continue on this pace.
Dwayne Bowe, LSU
Bowe has the skill set to become one of the best receivers in the league, but he has been held back by poor quarterback play in Kansas City. He has 415 receptions for 5,728 yards and 39 touchdowns in six seasons. He still needs to be more consistent, but that shouldn't be a problem with Alex Smith now on the team.
A.J. Green, Georgia
Much like Jones, Green is another receiver who has made a name for himself in just two short seasons. He has 162 receptions for 2,407 yards and 18 touchdowns. He is a two-time Pro Bowl selection and has become an elite offensive weapon.
Steve Johnson, Kentucky
Johnson is finally coming into his own after five seasons with the Buffalo Bills. Although he hasn't been selected to the Pro Bowl or won any awards, he has caught at least 76 passes in three straight seasons and has 25 touchdown receptions in his career. This is a receiver to keep an eye on.
Randall Cobb, Kentucky
Cobb is an emerging superstar with elite athleticism and speed. He is an x-factor on special teams and caught 80 passes for 954 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He is an all-purpose player who can continue to climb the charts as long as he can continue to find ways to produce.
