The SEC lost two of its best receivers last year when A.J. Green and Julio Jones announced their decisions to declare for the NFL draft following their junior years.
However, the SEC is still loaded at the wide receiver position, like it is at every position.
This is the best conference in college football without a doubt, and this is because the depth that it has across the board.
Before everyone gets upset with this list, realize that I broke this slideshow into two parts. The first five receivers named are the best incoming recruits at the wide receiver position, and the last five are returning starters.
With Jones and Green bolting to the NFL, who are the best receivers next year?
Newcomer: Malcolm Mitchell, Georgia
Scouting Report: Mitchell is listed as a corner back by a couple of recruiting services, but Mitchell is also a top level wide receiver.
Mitchell could play both corner or receiver in college, but Mark Richt said in his signing day press conference that he was leaning towards receiver.
Mitchell has great speed, and will be a deep threat for Aaron Murray next fall. However, I would not be surprised if he played defense.
After watching his highlight film, it is hard to believe that he won’t be a receiver at the next level.
