Sammy Watkins, Kelvin Benjamin, Martavis Bryant, Devin Street and Mike Campanaro are all gone, but there is still a lot of star-studded talent at receiver left behind. Guys like Rashad Greene and Jamison Crowder are looking to improve upon their strong showings last season, while there are a handful of guys vying to make their name known within the ACC.

He was the Tar Heel’s second leading receiver behind Eric Ebron, who left for the NFL. Last season he had roughly 700 yards in receiving and 10 touchdowns. He is another receiver on this list with great size and speed. There is no telling how great Davis can be with the way Larry Fedora likes to run his offense.

Crowder is a pure playmaker; one that had such a productive season last year hauling in 108 passes for 1,360 yards. There isn't much he can’t do for a player at his size. I don’t expect him to drop off too much in productivity with Anthony Boone still under center.

Parker is a physically gifted wide receiver at 6-foot-3, 208 pounds. He managed to put up some strong numbers with 885 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, even battling injuries. Scouts really like his ability to catch the ball in traffic and have him going anywhere in the first two rounds in next year’s draft.

Boyd is coming off of a spectacular freshman campaign with 85 catches and 1,174 yards. With Devin Street gone, he will be the Panthers go-to guy. He has all the tools to be an elite receiver, not only in this league, but in the country. By his junior year, he will have his name in consideration for first team All-American, if not sooner.

The Florida State Seminoles lost big targets Kelvin Benjamin and Kenny Shaw to the NFL, but one constant they have is senior Rashad Greene. He has been nothing but consistent since stepping foot onto campus. Last year he led the Noles with 76 receptions for 1,128 yards. He will look to be their leading receiver again this season.
