Ranking college football's top 10 WRs for 2020

As a part of our partnership with ESPN, this story was originally published on ESPN+ and can be viewed in its entirety here with your ESPN+ subscription – Ranking college football's top 10 WRs for 2020

We have ranked college football's top 10 returning quarterbacks and running backs for 2020, and now it's time to turn our attention to the receivers.

As a whole, the wide receiver position simply does not get enough credit for the value it brings to the gridiron. Everyone loves watching the running backs and pass-rushers. But, as it turns out, wide receiver is the third-most valuable position on the field behind quarterback and cornerback, per the extensive studies done by PFF's research and development team.

We all know this year's NFL draft contains arguably the best wide receiver class in history, but college football has no shortage of elite players returning at the position next season. Using a combination of PFF grades and PFF's wins above average (WAA) metric, we present the top 10 wide receivers returning to college football in 2020, as well as a sleeper to watch out for.
