2011 WIDE RECEIVER RANKINGS


1. Justin Blackmon, Jr., Oklahoma State

The loss of offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen is definitely a concern, but it'd take a real daredevil to rank Blackmon anywhere but No. 1 after he totaled 1,859 yards and 22 touchdowns last year. His performance last season was one of the absolute best ever by a college receiver no one could come close to stopping him. His worst game last year saw him total eight catches for 105 yards and a touchdown.

2. Lance Lewis, Sr., East Carolina

The former junior college transfer brings BCS talent to East Carolina's Conference-USA schedule, an explosive combination when you factor in the team's Texas Tech-style offense. Even with Dwayne Harris pulling in 101 catches for 1,123 yards and 10 touchdowns, Lewis still posted 89 catches for 1,116 yards and 14 touchdowns last year. With Harris out of the way, Lewis' numbers should increase in 2011.

3. Ryan Broyles, Sr., Oklahoma

Broyles has been simply spectacular the last two years, catching 220 passes for 2,742 yards while scoring 31 total touchdowns. With quarterback Landry Jones heading into this third year as a starter, there's no reason to expect that productivity to go decline in 2011. Broyles' catches per game increased by two from 2009 to 2010, and his yards per game increased by 22, so he might not be done improving.

4. Patrick Edwards, Sr., Houston

Edwards was the least-hyped Houston receiver last year, but he turned out to be vastly superior to colleagues James Cleveland and Tyron Carrier. Cleveland and Carrier combined for just 1,280 yards and seven touchdowns receiving while Edwards blazed his way to 1,100 yards and 13 touchdowns. He even scored a 14th touchdown on a punt return. With Case Keenum back at quarterback, Edwards likely will improve last season's numbers.

5. Juron Criner, Sr., Arizona

Criner is the go-to guy in Arizona's pass-happy spread offense, and the big 6-4 target emerged as one of the nation's top receivers in 2010. He showed glimpses of brilliance while totaling 581 yards and nine receiving touchdowns in 2009, but he turned his game up several notches in 2011, finishing with 1,244 yards and 11 touchdowns. He did that despite playing through a turf toe injury for much of last year. A full season of healthy will only add to his value.

6. Tavon Austin, Jr., West Virginia

Former Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen brings his Houston-style spread offense to West Virginia this year, which means a lot of work for Austin. The undersized (5-9, 173) Austin moved from running back to receiver last year and proved a quick study, finishing with 946 yards and nine touchdowns from scrimmage. With Jock Sanders (69 receptions in 2010) out of the way in West Virginia's new passing attack, Austin's numbers should explode this year.

7. Damaris Johnson, Sr., Tulsa

Whether as a receiver, runner or returner, Johnson has been unstoppable the last three years. His 872 yards and four touchdowns as a receiver last year aren't impressive at first glance, but the picture quickly changes when his 560 yards and seven touchdowns as a runner are included. He added two touchdowns as a returner. G.J. Kinne returns at quarterback for the third year straight, setting up the ultra-versatile Johnson for big numbers again in 2011.

8. Michael Floyd, Sr., Notre Dame

Floyd's eligibility at Notre Dame is in limbo due to an offseason DUI arrest, but expect him be reinstated for his senior season and to dominate when he gets on the field. Floyd's numbers are in elite territory when he plays, but his ranking is suppressed because of durability issues. He has 2,539 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns in 29 career games at Notre Dame, including 1,820 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns in his last 19 games, but he's missed nine games to injury in three years. In his second season with quarterback Dayne Crist in the Brian Kelly offense, a career year is hardly out of the question for Floyd.

9. Alshon Jeffery, Jr., South Carolina

Jeffery might be ranked higher if not for uncertainty at quarterback thanks to Stephen Garcia's off-the-field shenanigans. Jeffrey proved he's one of the nation's top receivers, totaling 1,518 receiving yards in 14 games last season. His nine touchdowns, though, are underwhelming among top-tier receivers, which is another reason to he's not ranked higher.

10. Royce Pollard, Sr., Hawaii

With the departures of Greg Salas and Kealoha Pilares, the Hawaii offense suddenly has a void of 3,195 yards and 29 touchdowns in the passing game. Add another 874 yards and two touchdowns considering the loss of Rodney Bradley and Alex Green. Pollard posted 901 yards and seven touchdowns among that crowded group last season, suggesting gigantic numbers could be forthcoming with all those targets up for grabs in 2011.

11. D.J. Woods, Sr., Cincinnati

Woods had a strong junior season last year, finishing with 898 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while adding 87 rushing yards and two more scores. He figures to take another step forward this season now that Armon Binns, last year's leading receiver, is no longer on the team. Between Binns and fellow 2010 senior Marcus Barnett, the Cincinnati passing game has a shortage of 100 catches for 1,434 yards and 12 touchdowns heading into 2011. Woods figures to pick up a good chunk of that.

12. Jeff Fuller, Sr., Texas A&M

Fuller is a bit of a durability worry after dealing with leg and ankle injuries the last two years, but he still finished last year with 72 catches for 1,066 yards and 12 touchdowns. The reason he fails to crack the top 10, however, is he totaled just 125 yards and one touchdown over a four-week span in the second half of last year, and that kind of inconsistency is difficult to deal with for fantasy owners. But if he stays healthy all year and maintains consistency, Fuller has the upside to rank higher.

13. Chris Owusu, Sr., Stanford

It might seem like madness to rank Owusu this high when he's coming off a 396-yard, three-touchdown season, but don't be fooled by those numbers. Owusu is one of the nation's best playmakers his season last year was wrecked by an undisclosed leg injury. He stands to take a big jump forward this season, as five senior Stanford pass catchers from 2010 combined for 2,011 yards and 19 touchdowns more than half of Stanford's production in each of those categories. Owusu will make up for lost time in 2011.

14. Eric Page, Jr., Toledo

While he isn't big or fast enough to generate a great deal of media attention, Page is nonetheless one of the nation's absolute best players. Despite only turning 20 in September, Page already has 2,306 yards and 16 touchdowns from scrimmage, in addition to three passing touchdowns and three kick-return touchdowns. Even though defenses single him out, Page has generally remained unstoppable even against non-MAC opponents like Ohio State, Boise State, Arizona, Purdue (twice) and Colorado, he still totaled 46 catches for 577 yards and three touchdowns.

15. Cole Beasley, Sr., Southern Methodist

Beasley figures to follow the examples set by Emmanuel Sanders and Aldrick Robinson and become the next elite Southern Methodist wideout. He got off to a nice start last season, totaling 87 receptions for 1,060 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games. With Robinson out of the way in 2011, those numbers have a great chance to improve. In one of the most time-tested passing schemes in the nation with one of college football's most productive passers (Kyle Padron), Beasley is playing in an excellent situation.

16. Robert Woods, So., USC

Woods is unproven but is also one of the nation's most talented wideouts. A consensus five-star recruit in 2010, he finished his true freshman season with 64 catches for 786 yards and seven touchdowns (one on a kick return) in 13 games. That included a two-game span against Stanford and California in which he posted 19 receptions for 340 yards and five touchdowns. With 2010 seniors Ronald Johnson, Stanley Havili, David Ausberry and Jordan Cameron combining for 132 catches, 1,466 yards and 15 touchdowns last year, Woods will have a chance to post much better numbers this season.

17. T.Y. Hilton, Sr., Florida International

Hilton has had no trouble establishing himself as one of the nation's best playmakers the last three years, whether as a receiver, runner or returner. He only had 848 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games as a receiver last year, but his 282 yards and four touchdowns as a runner (as well as two kick return touchdowns) made him a big fantasy asset. Despite never playing with a quarterback who threw for more than 2,623 yards or 16 touchdowns in a year, Hilton still has totaled 2,867 yards from scrimmage and 29 touchdowns.

18. Jeremy Ebert, Sr., Northwestern

Ebert was having an excellent season last year before quarterback Dan Persa suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon against Iowa in November. In his first 10 games, Ebert totaled 54 receptions for 849 yards and eight touchdowns. In the three games without Persa, Ebert was held to 107 yards and no scores. With Persa healthy for 2011, expect Ebert to top 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in his second year as a starter.

19. Darius Johnson, Jr., Southern Methodist

Cole Beasley is the favorite, but Johnson still has a chance to emerge as Southern Methodist's top receiver this season. Playing as the third wideout behind Beasley and Aldrick Robinson as a sophomore last year, Johnson finished with 78 catches for 845 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games. That includes 18 receptions for 257 yards and a touchdown in the final two games. With more targets coming his way this season, Johnson has plenty of upside.

20. Dwight Jones, Jr., North Carolina

If standout quarterback T.J. Yates hadn't graduated, Jones' fantasy prospects would look better. Incoming starter Bryn Renner was a highly rated recruit, but it's not clear if he'll have the same chemistry with Jones that Yates showed last season when Jones closed out the year with 842 yards and four touchdowns in the season's final eight weeks. Still, with two years to learn the North Carolina system, Renner should hit the ground running this season.

21. Nick Harwell, So., Miami (OH)

While Harwell was technically a second-year freshman last season (he transferred from Air Force Academy Preparatory School), it's still difficult not to be impressed with the 856 yards and six touchdowns he posted in the last nine weeks of the season. It's a bit concerning that he didn't see the field much before that point, but it looks like he has earned a prominent role in the offense for this season.


22. Kelvin Bolden, Sr., Southern Mississippi

The junior college transfer showed flashes of brilliance in his first year at Southern Mississippi in 2010, totaling 46 catches for 722 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games. With a year's experience in the Southern Mississippi system, not to mention the departures of receivers like Johdrick Morris and DeAndre Brown, Bolden should have little trouble breezing past last year's numbers. Thanks to a strong running game and efficient play from senior quarterback Austin Davis, Bolden's situation is highly favorable.

23. Tyron Carrier, Sr., Houston

Carrier was a gigantic bust last year, totaling just 480 yards and a touchdown after posting 2,036 yards and 16 touchdowns the previous two years. But his numbers should swing upward this season. The departures of 2010 seniors James Cleveland and Kierrie Johnson leaves more room for Carrier in the offense, and the return of quarterback Case Keenum, who suffered a season-ending injury in the third game of the season last year, is significant.

24. Justin Hunter, So., Tennessee

Hunter is one of the biggest boom-or-bust wide receivers this season. He only caught 17 passes as a true freshman last year, but he displayed incredible big-play ability, turning those catches into 415 yards and seven touchdowns. The departure of seniors Denarius Moore, Gerald Jones and Luke Stocker, however, leaves a void of 1,994 yards and 15 touchdowns in the Tennessee passing game, so Hunter is a near lock to see his production skyrocket in 2011. Quarterback Tyler Bray showed a lot of big-play ability as a true freshman last year, which makes him a good fit for Hunter's vertical game.

25. Cody Wilson, Jr., Central Michigan

Wilson was excellent as a sophomore last year, finishing with 1,232 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns in 12 games. Given that junior quarterback Ryan Radcliff is back, Wilson should carry last year's success into this season. Wilson will outperform his ranking if he becomes more than a possession specialist and more of an end-zone specialist.

26. Kendall Wright, Sr., Baylor

Wright is the top receiver in a strong Baylor passing game, led by star quarterback Robert Griffin. He has improved steadily in his three years at Baylor, raising his receiving yardage totals from 649 to 740 to 952 last year. His numbers 952 yards and seven touchdowns look even better considering a fluky three-catch, minus-one-yard effort against Sam Houston State in the season opener. Given the improvement he's shown over his career, it would hardly be surprising if Wright took his game to another level in 2011.

27. Kamar Jorden, Sr., Bowling Green

Jorden was one of the nation's most active possession wideouts last season, finishing with 96 catches for 1,109 yards and four touchdowns. As the low touchdown total indicates, however, Jorden's big-play ability was badly limited in Bowling Green's dysfunctional offense. The team's quarterbacks combined for 12 touchdowns to 20 interceptions, averaging just 6.1 yards per attempt. That needs to change if Jorden's numbers are to improve this season.

28. Conner Vernon, Jr., Duke

Vernon usurped Donovan Varner as Duke's top receiver last year, finishing his sophomore season with 73 catches for 972 yards and four touchdowns. If he's going to do better this season, however, he needs improved quarterback play. Sean Renfree showed some promise late in the year, throwing for 1,394 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the final five games, but his 15 interceptions in the first seven weeks indicate that he's anything but a safe bet.

29. Tyler Shoemaker, Sr., Boise State

Shoemaker is expected to be one of Boise State's starting receivers in 2011, which likely makes him a good fantasy asset by default at least as long as quarterback Kellen Moore is around. Shoemaker finished last year with 582 yards and five touchdowns as the team's third wideout, so he'll have a chance to post strong numbers with Titus Young and Austin Pettis out of the way. As a three-year veteran in Boise's system, Shoemaker will be ready to contribute from the start the only question is his upside.

30. Mike Shanahan, Jr., Pittsburgh

Shanahan isn't exactly an established commodity with just one career touchdown, but he figures to see a big upswing in his numbers thanks to the Tulsa-style offense that new coach Todd Graham is bringing to Pittsburgh. Shanahan finished last year with 43 catches for 589 yards and a score decent numbers considering the presence of first-round NFL pick Jonathan Baldwin and the team's run-heavy disposition. After a year of starting experience with quarterback Tino Sunseri, Shanahan is the favorite to emerge as Pitt's leading wideout.

31. Derek Moye, Sr., Penn State

Moye quietly turned himself into one of the nation's best receivers last year. He caught fire after the first month of the season, totaling 614 yards and eight touchdowns in his final eight games. His upside is limited by Penn State's run-heavy offense, but the lanky playmaker has averaged more than 16 yards per catch every year, so he doesn't need many targets to do damage.

32. Patrick Hearn, Jr., Alabama-Birmingham

Hearn's sophomore year stats might be relatively modest, but he's likely in for promotion after finishing last year with 536 yards and four touchdowns. Quarterback Bryan Ellis emerged as one of the nation's most prolific passers last year, and three of UAB's top five receivers from last year were lost to graduation. Hearn is the favorite to take the lead role after finishing last season on a strong note, totaling 274 yards and three touchdowns in the final four weeks.

33. Robert Arnheim, Sr., Western Michigan

Alex Carder has the look of a star MAC quarterback, and the departure of the dominant 2010 wideout duo of Jordan White and Juan Nunez means Arnheim is the top candidate to be Carder's No. 1 target in 2011. A former quarterback himself, Arnheim actually led Western Michigan in receiving in 2009, when White and Nunez had their seasons shortened by injury. Although he lacks big-play ability, Arnheim figures to provide steady production in 2011.

34. Kenbrell Thompkins, Jr., Cincinnati

Thompkins didn't play last season, but he should hit the ground running as one of Cincinnati's top two receivers in 2011. He was a highly prized junior college recruit a year ago, reportedly choosing Cincinnati over programs like Oregon, Alabama and Florida. Alongside D.J. Woods, he figures to serve as a productive target for Zach Collaros.

35. DeAndre Hopkins, So., Clemson

Hopkins was impressive as a true freshman last year, totaling 440 yards and three receiving touchdowns in the last five weeks of the season. That included 230 yards and a touchdown against South Carolina and Florida State. His fantasy upside is high, though, because former Tulsa offensive coordinator Chad Morris will be running the show in 2011, and the Clemson offense should be much more aggressive than in recent years.

36. B.J. Cunningham, Sr., Michigan State

He plays in a run-heavy offense and hasn't put up big fantasy numbers to this point, but Cunningham could take his game to the next level in 2011. With Mark Dell graduating, Cunningham should have enough of the Michigan State offense to himself to push for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. He finished 2010 with 611 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games after going for 641 and four in 2009.

37. Cody Hoffman, So., Brigham Young

The big wideout is generally still a bit obscure at this point, but he has a head start in the race to be standout quarterback Jake Heaps' favorite target. He finished last year with 527 yards and seven touchdowns, but 329 yards and six touchdowns came within the final five weeks of the year. Look for Hoffman to build on that momentum this season.

38. Marquess Wilson, So., Washington State

The Washington State program doesn't have much reason for optimism these days, but Wilson's fantastic true freshman season in 2010 is a good starting point. He proved a great big-play threat, ranking 31st in the nation with 1,006 yards despite catching just 55 passes. It'd be nice if he were in a more efficient offense, but it's hard to not be sold on Wilson after he burned Stanford's tough and disciplined defense for 150 yards and a touchdown on the road last year.

39. Greg Childs, Sr., Arkansas

If talent alone were all that went into fantasy rankings, Childs would be higher. He's the most productive member of Arkansas' absurdly deep group of wideouts Childs, Cobi Hamilton, Joe Adams and Jarius Wright could serve as 1,000-yard receivers in a number of offenses. But since they're fighting for the ball at the same time in Arkansas, the fantasy value of each is limited. Childs' season-ending patella tendon injury in late October is also a bit concerning, but there isn't any indication that he won't be ready for this season.

40. James Rodgers, Sr., Oregon State

Rodgers has undergone two surgeries on his left knee since suffering a season-ending injury in October 2010, and his status for the season is somewhat in question. Rodgers insists he'll be ready for the first game, but the lack of information on his initial injury and the subsequent surgeries understandably leaves fantasy owners feeling uneasy. If he does play and is as effective as he was pre-injury, Rodgers warrants top-15 consideration.

41. T.J. Moe, Jr., Missouri

Moe was an excellent breakout player for Missouri last season, ranking ninth in the nation with 92 receptions, turning those catches into 1,045 yards and six touchdowns. His value heading into 2011 isn't as clear, however. New quarterback James Franklin won't necessarily work as well with Moe as did Blaine Gabbert, and Franklin also figures to run the ball more than Gabbert. Still, Moe was far and away Missouri's most effective receiver last year, so that has to count for something.

42. Alexander Torres, Jr., Texas Tech

Not much information has surfaced about the Texas Tech wideout rotation for 2011, but Torres is a good bet to emerge as one of the top targets. He only had 481 yards and three touchdowns last year, but he led the team in receptions in 2009, finishing with 67 catches for 806 yards and six touchdowns. With Lyle Leong and Detron Lewis out of the way, Torres has a good chance to return to his past prominence.

43. Austin Zouzalik, Jr., Texas Tech

Zouzalik, who finished last year with 31 receptions for 432 yards and two scores, is just behind Alexander Torres in the Texas Tech offense. Zouzalik also had 35 catches for 469 yards and two scores as a freshman in 2009. As an expected starter in the Texas Tech pass-happy spread, he has a great opportunity to rise to fantasy prominence this season.

44. Ladarius Green, Sr., Louisiana-Lafayette, TE

Green is the top fantasy tight end in college football this season, as he was last season. Despite missing two games, Green still finished last year with 794 yards and seven touchdowns on an absurd 18.1 yards per catch. That includes 334 yards and three touchdowns in the final three weeks. Even though he's the only target defenses pay attention to on the Lafayette offense, Green is unstoppable by tight end standards.

45. Geraldo Hiwat, So., Boise State

Hiwat only has 160 yards to his name at the college level, but the big target figures to be a decent fantasy asset by default in Boise State's nearly infallible offense. He generated a fair amount of hype in spring practices, so while he's an unknown to most, expectations are high within the Boise State program. Fellow wideout Tyler Shoemaker is the safer selection between, but Hiwat might have more upside.

46. Ryan Grant, Jr., Tulane

Grant's total of 515 yards and four touchdowns from 2010 isn't especially impressive, but he figures to get a considerable workload increase in 2011. Three of Tulane's top four receivers from last season are gone, leaving a shortage of 1,509 yards and 13 touchdowns in the passing game. It's also promising how Grant's quarterback, Ryan Griffin, showed considerable progress last season. Griffin finished the year with 1,871 yards, 14 touchdowns and six interceptions in his final seven games after posting 500 yards and two interceptions in his first four.

47. DeVonte Christopher, Jr., Utah

Christopher surprisingly emerged as Utah's most productive receiver in his sophomore season, leading the team with 660 receiver yards and six touchdowns in 12 games. With four of Utah's six leading pass catchers lost to graduation, Christopher should get more work in 2011. It also helps that quarterback Jordan Wynn is heading into his second season as starter.

48. A.J. Jenkins, Sr., Illinois

Jenkins was a bit inconsistent in Illinois' run-heavy spread last season and likely will remain that way to some extent, but he's a talented player and the favorite target of rising star quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase. Jenkins finished last year with 22 receptions for 288 yards and three touchdowns in Illinois' final four games. With Scheelhaase entering his second year as starter, Jenkins should build on that ending this season.

49. Billy Ray Stutzmann, So., Hawaii

With Royce Pollard presumably taking the lead role on the outside for Hawaii (thus more or less replacing Greg Salas), Stutzmann has a good opportunity to emerge as the team's top inside receiver, the role held by Kealoha Pilares in 2010. Stutzmann only had 130 yards and a touchdown last year, but he reportedly committed to Hawaii over schools like Michigan State, Washington and Oregon State, so he might be more talented than the typical Hawaii receiving prospect. He's a high-risk, high-upside player no matter how you cut it.

50. Darius Bright, Jr., Hawaii

Like Billy Ray Stutzmann, Bright is a high-risk, high-reward option in the Hawaii offense. At 6-3, 230, he's bigger than basically any Hawaii wideout in recent memory, so he'll at least be an interesting experiment. Bright will play outside in Hawaii's spread, using his size to make big plays deep for Hawaii. Playing outside might give Bright a lower floor than Stutzmann, but it might also give him a higher ceiling.

51. Paul Richardson, So., Colorado

Legal troubles got Richardson kicked off the UCLA team in June last year, but he arrived at Colorado not long afterward and proved a quick study. He wasted no time showing why he was a consensus four-star recruit in 2010, earning a role as the team's third wideout and finishing the season with 514 receiving yards and six touchdowns. What's especially impressive, though, is how 450 of those yards and all of the touchdowns came in the season's last six weeks. If he can stay out of trouble, Richardson has the look of a future star.

52. Roy Roundtree, Jr., Michigan

While he was maddeningly inconsistent for the most part, Roundtree was still impressive as a sophomore last year. He easily finished the season as the team's top receiver, totaling 72 receptions for 935 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. With another year of experience and fewer designed run plays for Denard Robinson, Roundtree might see more targets in 2011. It also doesn't hurt that Darryl Stonum, who caught 49 passes for 633 yards and four touchdowns last year, might get kicked off the team after facing offseason DUI allegations, the second time he has faced the charge at Michigan.

53. Joe Adams, Sr., Arkansas

Tyler Wilson should be a decent replacement for Ryan Mallett, so quarterback concerns aren't the reason why Adams is this low. Greg Childs, Cobi Hamilton and Jarius Wright, on the other hand, are major reasons for concern. Those three are good enough to be No. 1 wideouts on a number of teams, so last year's 813-yard, seven-touchdown performance might be somewhat of a best-case scenario for Adams. The good news is that tight end D.J. Williams graduated, which leaves roughly 600 yards and four touchdowns up for grabs based on last year's offense.

54. Jermaine Kearse, Sr., Washington

This might seem low for a player who totaled 20 receiving touchdowns the last two years, but Kearse's fantasy value isn't as high as that stat might lead you to believe. First, he was inconsistent last year, scoring 12 touchdowns in just six games and totaling just 127 yards in four games. Second, the loss of quarterback Jake Locker is significant. It's anyone's guess whether Locker's replacement will be friend or foe to Kearse and the receiving unit, and the team might even go to a more run-heavy offense thanks to its talented running back tandem of Chris Polk and Deontae Cooper.

55. Tavarres King, Jr., Georgia

Despite being caught in the vast shadow of A.J. Green all this time, King still has established himself as one of college football's best big-play threats at receiver the last two years. He has only 45 catches in that span, but he took those receptions for 881 yards an average of 19.6 yards per catch. With Green out of the way in 2011, King should get many more opportunities this season.

56. Kenny Stills, So., Oklahoma
57. Brett Moncrief, Sr., Troy
58. Corey Johnson, Jr., Troy
59. Luther Ambrose, Sr., Louisiana-Monroe
60. Da'Rick Rodgers, So., Tennessee
61. Mohamed Sanu, Jr., Rutgers
62. Mark Harrison, Jr., Rutgers
63. Marcus Rivers, Sr., Buffalo
64. Quentin Pierce, Jr., Southern Mississippi
65. Theo Riddick, Jr., Notre Dame
66. Marvin Jones, Sr., California
67. Jarrett Boykin, Sr., Virginia Tech
68. Noel Grigsby, So., San Jose State
69. Stedman Bailey, So., West Virginia
70. Brad Starks, Sr., West Virginia
