Quarterback/Wide Receiver Combos That Are Bound to Break Out This Season
Gregory Bull/Associated Press

With quarterbacks regularly eclipsing 5,000 passing yards, and with wide receivers inching toward 2,000 yards, quarterback/wide receiver combos are trending in college football. They're combos that are fun to watch—unless you're an opposing defense, that is. 

Last year, it was Oregon State's Sean Mannion and Brandin Cooks. Two years before that, it was Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon. 

With the departures of duos like Fresno State's Derek Carr and Davante Adams, or Clemson's Tajh Boyd Sammy Watkins, there's a new crop of quarterback/receiver combos bound to break out in 2014.

The only rule here is the quarterbacks on this list must have thrown for fewer than 3,000 yards last year. Similarly, the receivers must have had fewer than 1,000 receiving yards last year. 

Who are some players to watch? The answers are in the following slides.
