Editor's note: This is the second installment in Bleacher Report's CFB 250 for the 2013 season. This signature series runs through December, with National College Football Lead Writer Michael Felder ranking the best players at every position. You can read more about the series in this introductory article. See the CFB 250 page for more rankings.
The college football landscape is littered with great talent at wide receiver. Players from all over the nation get it done in a big way at the position, making it difficult to pare down the list to a top 24.
In making that determination for the B/R CFB 250, we took a look at hands, route running, speed and run-after-the-catch ability for each candidate. Scoring was obviously subjective, but those are the critical characteristics of the best college wide receivers. And if there were any ties, the edge went to the player we would rather have.
Keep in mind, these wide receivers are being rated on their performance in college, not NFL potential. But to see where they may go in the NFL draft (whether they are eligible in 2014 or later), check out Bleacher Report draft expert Matt Miller's projections at the end of each slide.
