The SEC is a run-first conference, but several superstar wide receivers will join the league in 2014—the top three of which are Texas A&M's Speedy Noil, LSU's Malachi Dupre and Auburn's D'haquille Williams.
Noil is an electric playmaker who can be a deep threat, but he is more dangerous with the ball in his hands near the line of scrimmage in space. The 5'10.5", 176-pounder from New Orleans boasts a 4.4 40-yard dash time, enrolled early and will work with the quarterbacks vying for the spot this spring.
Dupre waited until national signing day to announce his decision, and the New Orleans product will stay in state and join Les Miles' Tigers at LSU. The 6'2.5", 187-pounder only had 607 receiving yards as a senior, but he primarily played in a veer offense at John Curtis Christian High School.
"[He's] a tremendously capable athlete, very explosive, great speed for his size," Miles said in quotes released by LSU. "Great catching radius, has the ability to get to the ball. And just a tremendous play maker."
Williams is a junior-college transfer who, on top of being 6'3", 213 pounds with great top-end speed, is stepping into a system at Auburn where he should become a superstar. Malzahn adjusts his system to his weapons, and Williams will join Sammie Coates in Auburn's receiving corps and instantly give quarterback Nick Marshall options outside.
"He has unbelievable skills," head coach Gus Malzahn said in quotes released by Auburn. "I got a chance to get to know him back in his high school days. I really think he will have a chance to be an impact player right off the bat.”
