Quarterbacks continue to get most of the glory in college football, but where would they be without someone to catch their passes?
The 2015 season was a huge one for wide receivers in college, with seemingly every top team possessing at least one big-play wideout who was capable of going the distance. Many of these were on our preseason list of the best receivers, but others emerged through their play this fall.
The following rankings are based primarily on one's skills as a college player rather than how he would fare in the NFL. Though these players may be using this time to develop their game for the pro level, first and foremost their goals are centered on helping their teams succeed.
Player ratings are based on a tabulation of four different categories (hands, route running, speed and blocking) and based on evaluations made by our writers in conjunction with Bleacher Report football experts.
NOTE: Any ties in overall grade were broken based on which player would give a hypothetical college all-star team the best chance to win.
