The best Notre Dame Fighting Irish wide receivers ever have all had a part in making Notre Dame one of the top-tier Division I college programs in the nation. While the early days of the college game were dominated by running backs, the rise of high-powered, high-scoring offenses means wide receivers have become a key piece of the college strategy.

Older players like Tim Brown and Derrick Mayes made their mark in the history of Notre Dame’s offense with their great performances in the past, as newer players like Michael Floyd and Golden Tate carried on that legacy with tremendous talent and skill. The Fighting Irish have had many wide receivers go on to the NFL, and some even had Hall of Fame-level careers, but it all started with their days starting for Notre Dame football.
