75 Receivers On 2013 Biletnikoff Watch List
The list of 75 receivers on this year’s Biletnikoff Award watch list was released on Tuesday.
The award, named after former Florida St. Seminoles and Oakland Raiders great Fred Biletnikoff, has been given out to the best college football receiver in the nation, annually, since 1994.
LSU junior Odell Beckham has bee named to the watch list, after catching 43 passes, for 743 yards, and two touchdowns a season ago.
Joining Beckham, and representing Louisiana schools, are senior Ryan Grant of Tulane, and senior Je’Ron Hamm of ULM.
Besides Hamm, two other Sun Belt Conference players are on the list, including Arkansas St. sophomore J.D. McKissic and Troy senior Eric Thomas.
The SEC has 14 representatives on the list, followed by the ACC with 12, and the Big Ten with 10.
Last year’s winner was Marqise Lee, of USC.
A national selection committee consisting of over 150 journalists, commentators, broadcasters, and former players selects the award winner, which is sponsored by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation.
This year’s winner will be announced on December 12.
