Top College Football Wide Receivers 2012

List Criteria: Please rank the players based only on their 2012 season

The top college football wide receivers in 2012 are those college football players who will be catching the Hail Mary touchdown passes, leading the league in receptions and awing fans with their catching abilities. Along with the top college football quarterbacks, these NCAA Football wideouts will each be hoping to lead their team to greatness during the 2012 college football season.

For many of these college football receivers, seeing success is part their own athletic ability and part having a really solid team behind them. That applies for the likes of Robert Woods and Marqise Lee of the USC Trojans, Kenny Stills of the Oklahoma Sooners, and Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey of the West Virginia Mountaineers. All of those teams and their players have enjoyed time in the top 10 of college football rankings in 2012 and are likely to continue to see success as the season winds down.

But for others, these wide receivers shine as the stars of their team. Washington State began the season at the bottom of the Pac-12 but that didn't stop Marquess Wilson from ranking among the top wide receivers. Same thing for Austin Franklin. His New Mexico State Aggies only won one game of their first five yet Franklin had 627 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the same time, good enough to put him fourth in the country.

So whether these top 2012 college football wide receivers are playing alongside the top college football running backs on the hottest teams in the country or just making a name for themselves on teams with lower expectations, all are burning up the charts among fellow NCAA Football wide receivers.
