How good is the SEC’s stock of receivers? Could this be the best ever?
According to the AP, “Sure, Alabama’s Don Hutson was the man back in the day. But that was the early 1940s. What about since? Carlos Alvarez? Terry Beasley? Cris Collinsworth? Eric Moulds? Josh Reed? Terrence Edwards? Earl Bennett? All good, but none really special. The SEC’s current crop of receivers could be the best the league has ever offered, with Georgia’s A.J. Green, Alabama’s Julio Jones, South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery and Kentucky’s Randall Cobb leading the way. Throw in Greg Childs and Joe Adams of Arkansas, and the conference has size, speed and arguably more depth at the position than it has in recent years. “‘I feel like all of them may go first round when they decide to come out,’ Green said.” (Below is the rest of the AP story on the SEC and its receivers.)
