The best Penn State Nittany Lions wide receivers ever have all had a part in making Penn State 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 Bobby Engram and O.J. McDuffie made their mark in the history of Penn State’s offense with their great performances in the past, as newer players like Chris Godwin and DaeShawn Hamilton carried on that legacy with tremendous talent and skill. The Lions 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 Penn State football.

So which of these players from Penn State’s long history deserves to rank near the top of the list? Who are the best Nittany Lions WRs of all-time? Vote below, and if you see any players missing from the list who should be considered, feel free to add them as well.
