1. Rashad Greene, Florida State
2011: As a freshman, Greene caught38 passes for 596 yards with seven touchdowns. His numbers would have been even greater had he not missed four games in the middle of a season because of an ankle injury.
He was named to the ACC All-Academic Football Team and picked up collegefootballnwes.com Freshman All-American honorable mention honors.
Against Clemson, Greene made eight catches for 98 yards and scored a touchdown.
What he's doing here: Last season, Greene may have been the most explosive freshman wide receiver in the country not named Sammy Watkins.
At 6-foot, 175 pounds, Greene has a comparable skill set to Watkins. If he stays healthy, look for Greene to have a monster sophomore season. He'll also work in the kickoff and punt return game this fall.
2. Emory Blake, Auburn
2011: As a junior, Blake started in eight of the 11 games he played. He led Auburn with 36 catches for 613 yards and was second with five touchdown receptions. The 6-foot-2, 197-pound wide receiver finished seventh in SEC receiving yards per game [55.7] and 10th in receptions per game [3.3].
His only catch in last season's game against Clemson was a 36-yard touchdown reception.
What he's doing here: Blake has four career 100-yard receiving games, which places him fifth on the all-time list at Auburn. He is currently 17th in school history with 1,233 yards receiving and ninth with 13 receiving touchdowns.
His streak of seven consecutive games with a touchdown catch [2010-11] is the second-best in school history.
For now, Blake is a mid- to late-round NFL Draft prospect in 2013.
3. Michael Campanaro, Wake Forest
2011: As a sophomore, Campanaro caught 73 passes for 833 yards and two touchdowns. He and Chris Givens, a fourth-round draft pick by the St. Louis Rams, set a school record last season with 156 combined catches.
Campanaro also returned seven kickoffs for 149 yards and nine punts for 81 yards.
Against Clemson last season, he had nine catches for 72 yards.
What he's doing here: When you think of a small white guy who can run well and catches everything thrown his way, one name comes to mind -- Wes Welker. The comparison fits Campanaro very well.
Unfortunately for Campanaro, his partner in crime is now playing in the NFL. But if he continues to put up quality numbers, Campanaro will be there one day, too.
