College Football Heisman Watch: Running Backs
College Footall Heisman Watch: Wide Recievers
Total Pro Sports – Today we’ll take a look at the top College Football Wide Recievers who are potentially in the running for the Heisman Trophy.
Top Heisman Wide Recievers Candidates:
1. Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech Red Raiders) – In what has been the game of the year so far in college football Michael Crabtree was the biggest star. He showcased his skills on prime time in the win against Texas making the game winning touchdown catch with 1 second left on the clock and sending all of Lubbock, Texas into mayhem. This NFL ready wide receiver leads the country in touchdown receptions with 18 and is in the top 5 in receiving yards with 1010. Crabtree and the Red Raiders hold a berth into the National Championship game in their own hands, if they can win out they will be playing in Florida in January.
2. Dez Bryant (Oklahoma State Cowboys) - Zac Robinson’s favorite target has been phenomenal all season and has been a big reason for the success of the Cowboys. Bryant is second in the nation in receiving yards at 1140, third in touchdowns at 15, including three games in which he caught 3 or more touchdown passes. The sophomore wide receiver has a bright future, with good size and speed may be a Heisman nominee in the years to come.
3. Jarett Dillard (Rice Owls) - Who? We know that is the question you have to first ask yourself, but Jarett Dillard is for real. His numbers match up against any wide receiver in the country, he ranks third in total receiving yards at 1093, second in touchdowns at 17, and ninth in total receptions with 69. He has scored atleast one touchdown in every game this season except for 1 and has the Rice Owls sitting with a nice 7-3 record. The lone problem is that Dillard plays in a weaker Div-1A conference and that will be taken into consideration when the voters deliberate. He has however opened the eyes of NFL scouts and that may be the goal he was trying to accomplish.
