    Receivers aren’t nearly as strong as quarterbacks or receivers, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good ones out there waiting to be plucked. Receivers tend to come out of nowhere, and are always helped by a hot QB and high-octane passing system. Touchdowns are critical in separating the best receivers from those that are merely good, as just about every leading receiver tends to gain around the 750 to 1,000 yards.

    BLUE CHIP RECRUITS - Get your hands on one of these WRs no matter what. These are the franchise players.

    1. Chris Williams, Jr. New Mexico State
    CFN 2006 Point Total (note: these don’t include two-point conversions): 161 … 13.39 ppg
    Who? All the diminutive Williams did was lead the nation with 92 catches for 1,425 yards with 12 touchdowns. He's the number one slot target for Chase Holbrook and the high-octane Aggie attack. The only concern is his size. At 5-8 and 155, there are only so many shots he can take.

    2. Davone Bess, Jr. Hawaii
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 163 … 11.66 ppg
    Colt Brennan might be the star of the show, but there are rumblings that Bess is the better pro prospect. He followed up an 89 catch, 1,124-yard, 14 touchdown season with 96 catches for 1,220 yards and 15 scores. He catches everything that comes his way.

    3. Keenan Burton, Sr. Kentucky
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 134 … 10.29 ppg
    Can he stay healthy? That was the only question coming into last year. He was fine, and he exploded with 12 touchdown catches as Andre Woodson's favorite target. The offense should be even more explosive this year.

    4. Mario Manningham, Jr. Michigan
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 97 … 10.81 ppg
    Manningham was on his way to a jaw-dropping sophomore season before suffering a knee injury. He's back, and so is Chad Henne to throw touchdown pass after touchdown pass.

    5. Jason Rivers, Sr. Hawaii
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 131 … 9.33 ppg
    If anything happens to Davone Bess, put Rivers number one. Even with Bess playing in the bowl game against Arizona State, Rivers blew up with 14 catches for 308 yards and two scores. Being Colt Brennan's number two man isn't a bad deal.

    SECOND TIER - These will be some of the biggest producers in the country with a good chance of breaking into the top five prospects.
    6. Adarius Bowman, Sr. Oklahoma State
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 143 … 10.99 ppg
    The 2006 numbers are a bit inflated by one humongous performance, but he's still one of the nation's premier receivers.
    7. Jarett Dillard, Jr. Rice
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 201 ... 15.47 ppg
    Easily the nation's best fantasy receiver last year with 21 touchdowns and 1,247 yards, he gets knocked down a peg with the new coaching staff.
    8. Sammie Stroughter, Sr. Oregon State
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 108 … 8.31 ppg
    As explosive as anyone in the Pac 10, he'll hit more than his share of home runs. Don't worry about the new quarterback situation.
    9. DeSean Jackson, Jr. California
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 118 … 9.05 ppg
    Don't forget about the added bonus of his return numbers. He'll be even better as a receiver this year now that Nate Longshore knows what he's doing.
    10. Malcolm Kelly, Jr. Oklahoma
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 120 … 9.20 ppg
    As long as he's healthy, and the Sooners come up with a quarterback, Kelly will have a huge season. He'll likely be the first receiver taken in the 2007 Draft.
    11. Earl Bennett, Jr. Vanderbilt
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 105 … 8.79 ppg
    He's better than he gets credit for. As Chris Nickson gets better, so will Bennett. Expect double-digit touchdown catches.
    12. Harry Douglas, Sr. Louisville
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 115 … 8.83 ppg
    There's a ceiling on what Douglas will do with Mario Urrutia, and others, taking yards and touchdowns away.
    13. Patrick Turner, Jr. USC
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 28 … 2.18 ppg
    Someone has to catch all the scoring passes from John David Booty. Vidal Hazelton could end up being the number one.
    14. Limas Sweed, Sr. Texas
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 120 … 9.24 ppg
    As Colt McCoy gets more experienced and even more comfortable, Sweed will benefit. He's a lock for double-digit scores, but the overall yards might not be there.
    15. Jaison Williams, Jr. Oregon
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 95 … 8.67 ppg
    The best receiver you've never heard of, Williams will blow up if the Duck quarterback situation finally settles down.
