2019 College Football Preseason Rankings – Top 5 Wide Receivers: The 2019 College Football Preseason Rankings roll on, and it is time to give the wide receivers some love. With the defending Biletnikoff Award winner and the leader in receptions among the players back in the fold, this year’s crop of wideouts is particularly loaded. Not surprisingly, some of the national title frontrunners boast some of the top players, but the talent isn’t confined to the traditional powers. Let’s take a closer look at my Top 5 wide receivers for the 2019 College Football season.
2019 College Football Preseason Rankings: Top 5 Wide Receivers
1. Jerry Jeudy, Alabama Crimson Tide
The defending Biletnikoff winner will be back for more in 2019 after piling up 68 catches for 1,315 yards and 14 scores last season. Those numbers are even more impressive because Jeudy plays in Alabama’s run-first offense and was typically sitting on the bench by the fourth quarter. He can absolutely take the top off any defense, and he is a nightmare for defensive backs in space. Jeudy is a big play waiting to happen, and he makes it impossible for opponents to fully commit to stopping the run.
2. Rondale Moore, Purdue Boilermakers
Moore is coming off an incredible freshman campaign that saw him lead the country with 114 catches and set a new single-season school record with 2,215 all-purpose yards. He logged seven 100-yard games on his way to 1,258 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns, and the speedy Moore can line up all over the formation to create matchup problems. He gives Purdue’s offense legitimate star power, and Moore makes the types of play that can be the difference between a 6-6 season a 9-3 year.
3. Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State’s air-it-out offense is going to allow good players to put up great numbers, but Wallace is more than a product of a pass-happy system. He finished last year with 86 catches for 1,491 yards and 12 touchdowns, but it his ability to make plays in traffic that makes him special. Whether he is bringing down 50-50 balls down the field or winning one-on-one jump balls in the red zone, Wallace has an elite catch radius and might be the best in the country at attacking the ball at its highest point. In big downs in big games, he is a true go-to weapon.
4. Justyn Ross, Clemson Tigers
Although he only caught 46 passes last year, Ross still reached 1,000 yards and scored nine times. Armed with a ridiculous combination of size and speed, Ross was unleashed down the stretch of the season, posting 148 yards and two scores against Notre Dame in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff and finishing with 153 yards and a score in the title game against Alabama. Ross averaged 21.7 yards per reception last year, and he should only be better and have a larger role in 2019. The sky is the limit for this guy.
5. Laviska Shenault Jr., Colorado Buffaloes
Shenault was quietly one of the most versatile receivers in the country last year, finishing with 86 catches for 1,011 yards and six receiving touchdowns and adding five rushing scores. By the way, he put up those numbers in just nine games before an injury cut his season short. He is a punishing player after the catch, which is the reason Colorado doesn’t mind handing him the ball in the red zone. He can beat opponents in a variety of ways, and it is almost impossible to take him completely out of a game. If he can stay healthy, the Buffaloes could surprise some teams in 2019.
