This year was pretty much the year of the defense in college football. But There have been plenty of receivers out there that did a great job in taking advantages of defensive weaknesses, busted coverages, and just getting open and making plays. Guys like Freddie Barnes, Danario Alexander, Jordan Shipley, and Golden Tate have got to be considered in the top five or top ten of anybody's list. Just look at their receiving numbers and you’ll see why. With that said, here’s how I see this year’s top 100 college football wide receivers! Enjoy!
