Dane Sanzenbacher - Ohio State Buckeyes
Not the biggest wide receiver in the conference, Dane Sanzenbacher makes up for it with big play ability, and a passion in his play for his home-state Buckeyes. He was there true No. 2 receiver last season when he caught 36 passes and finished the season with six touchdowns.
Also, Sanzenbacher in what may go down in the biggest game of his life (unless the Bucko's reach the Title Game this year) caught nine passes in the Rose Bowl Game against the Oregon Ducks.
Derek Moye - Penn State Nittany Lions
A player with tons of potential still has three seasons of eligibility left at Penn State. Derek Moye is a tall and talented receiver that will help young quarterback Kevin Newsome greatly. Moye had 48 receptions last season, and had a very good game against a tough LSU defense in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day. If Kevin Newsome gets flustered early in games he may run outside of the pocket alot. In that case look for Derek Moye to catch deep balls when he uses his height to his advantage.
Marvin McNutt- Iowa Hawkeyes
The converted quarterback is looking to have a monster year after a brilliant sophomore campaign at his new position. His size dwarfs many cornerbacks that he is matched up against, and his hands are some of the best in the league. Many will remember his clutch touchdown reception with no time left to beat the Spartans in East Lansing. Others will think of his strong contributions during the Orange Bowl victory versus Georgia Tech. All in all Marvin McNutt led the Hawkeyes in touchdowns last season with eight. It would be no shocker if he repeated.
Tandon Doss- Indiana Hoosiers
Playmaker- That is what you get from Tandon Doss as he is one of the best that the conference has to offer. He has already been on the Paul Hornung and Fred Biletnikoff Awards watch lists, and comes back to the Hoosiers after having a statistically marvelous season in 2009. Last year he was only two catches away from tieing the school record for receptions in a season. Doss is a versatile player who can bring different things to the table for Bill Lynch and the Hoosiers. With Ben Chappell coming into his senior season with Doss and the others, it should be a big time year in the stats column for the Hoosier offense. Wins is still to be seen.
Mark Dell- Michigan State Spartans
This should and most likely will be a rebound year for Mark Dell of the Michigan State Spartans. He has suffered from injuries in the past, but this season he looks to establish himself as a top-level receiver. He will have the quarterback to do it with Kirk Cousins behind center this year. Keshawn Martin will also be a top target of the Spartan attack. With Blair White moving on to the NFL, the Spartans will need leadership from their wideouts, and Dell will have to come up big in that department.
Isaac Anderson- Wisconsin Badgers
Along with Kyle Jefferson, Anderson is going to have to make big plays for the Badgers to accomplish the lofty goals of winning the Big Ten; which some people have them targeted at. John Clay is going to command a good deal of attention from the opposition so the receivers are going to have to be the game-breakers in a couple games this year. Anderson did not have any special performances last season except for a 100 yard performance against Northern Illinois, but this is a new year, and with it comes new and larger expectations.
