Wednesday our Adam Aizer and J. Darin Darst ran down their choices for the top five running backs in college football, and now they're back to cover the top five wideouts in the FBS. Give a listen here:

No surprises at the top (why yes, Justin Blackmon and Alshon Jeffery do feature heavily), but you'll want to listen for who slips in at the 4 and 5 slots. (Me, I think Damaris Johnson is being robbed here, man. It's not like he's the NCAA's all-time career leader in all-purpose yardage or anything, guys.)

PODCAST: 2011's top 5 wide receivers

He is certainly far from your prototypical wide reciever, but Oregon State's James Rodgers at least deserves a mention here. He was having a monster season last year before his season ending injury, and he will be coming back this year after being granted a medical hardship. In my very biased oppinion he is the best reciever in the Pac-12, probably not on recieving alone but with what he does in the running and return game.

Alshon Jeffery is the most physically gifted of the guys mentioned by far. He's huge, strong and runs well.  However, he will not match Blackmon and Broyles, because he will face tougher defenses in the SEC and plays in a more run heavy system.
