Eight Mountain West Wide Receivers on Biletnikoff Award Watch List

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Eight wide-outs from the Mountain West are potential candidates to take home the Biletnikoff Award, given to the best receiver in the country.

Some of the more popular NFL Wide Receivers you know today were Biletnikoff Award winners. Larry Fitzgerald at Pittsburgh in 2003, Micheal Crabtree back-to-back in 2007-08, and many others since its inception in 1994. This year, 55 receivers were named as potential candidates to take home the award, including eight from the Mountain West:

Davis is the returning receiving yards leader with the departures of Davante Adams and Chandler Jones to the NFL, and could be primed for a huge senior year after a career-high in yards, receptions, and touchdowns in 2013.

Higgins and Winston both burst onto the MWC scene as Freshmen, eaching racking up 800-plus yards and five-plus touchdowns in their first seasons at the college level. Winston was also named the MWC Freshman of the Year last season, and earned recognition on several Freshman All-America teams.

All it takes is one breakout season and one of these eight could not only take home the Biletnikoff Award in the winter, but could land high up on 2015 NFL Draft boards..
