The Big Ten Conference has a national reputation as a power running conference with big, slow, non-athletic players.
That could not be further from the truth.
The conference is loaded with very good receivers that can stretch the field.
Two weeks ago the conference lost its leading receiver from a season ago, and through two games this season, Purdue's Keith Smith still leads the league with 18 receptions. Several players will pass Smith in total receptions this week, but it will take several huge games to surpass his nine catches per gamesecond is at 8.5 and third is 5.5.
Without Smith on the field, here are the best 11 receivers in the Big Ten.
