Top five SEC wide receivers in 2015
The SEC has never had a lack of talent at wide receiver across the conference, and this year is not any different.
Here are the conference’s top five wide receivers.
Pharoh Cooper, South Carolina (5-11, 207) — Cooper returns after a 1,136-yard, 11-touchdown season, and was the first South Carolina receiver to reach the 1,000-yard plateau since Alshon Jeffery. Cooper figures to be a huge target for newly minted starter Connor Mitch as he adjusts to SEC play.
D’haquille Williams, Auburn (6-2, 224) — Williams has a knack for making big plays, and may be the best pro prospect out of all the SEC receivers. He has the prototypical build for a receiver and likely will build on his 730 yards and five touchdowns from last season.
Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss (6-2, 210) — Treadwell was one of the most electrifying players in the conference before his season-ending injury last year. He averaged 13.2 yards per catch, and is dangerous in the open field.
Josh Reynolds, Texas A&M (6-4, 195) — On an Aggie team loaded with receiving talent, Reynolds is the best of the bunch. He led Texas A&M with 13 touchdowns, and with Kyle Allen cemented as the starter, Reynolds figures to have another monster year.
Ricky Seals-Jones, Texas A&M (6-5, 240) — Two Aggie receivers round out the list, and for good reason. Seals-Jones was one part of the outstanding freshman tandem that included Speedy Noil, but Seals-Jones is the better of the two.
