2014 stats: 41 catches, 558 yards, 6 touchdowns Core burst out onto the scene with a four-reception, 110-yard, two-touchdown performance in the 2014 opener against Boise State. Core developed into a solid No. 2 option, behind Laquon Treadwell, for Ole Miss and should help smooth the transition to life after Bo Wallace in 2015.

Keon Hatcher — Arkansas Razorbacks
2014 stats: 43 catches, 558 yards, 6 touchdowns Hatcher played a steady, albeit unspectacular, role in the Hogs offense last season. Keon has led the Razorbacks in receptions the past two seasons and should be able to take advantage of loaded boxes the Razorbacks are sure to face in 2015.

Ryan Timmons — Kentucky Wildcats
2014 stats: 45 catches, 536 yards, 2 touchdowns Timmons had a great freshman campaign for the Wildcats, registering a catch in every game until the season finale against Louisville. Expect to see Timmons' production to increase in only his second season with the Wildcats.

D'haquille Williams — Auburn Tigers
2014 stats: 45 catches, 730 yards, 5 touchdowns The physically imposing Williams lived up to his 5-star hype by immediately becoming the go-to guy for Nick Marshall last season. Had a knee injury not slowed him down, his numbers would have been much higher. If Duke can stay healthy, anticipate him tearing up the SEC on his way to becoming a high NFL Draft pick in 2016.

Speedy Noil — Texas A&M Aggies
2014 stats: 46 catches, 583 yards, 5 touchdowns Perhaps the best receiver name in the history of football, Speedy lived up to the hype in his freshman campaign. Noil's combination of size, speed and toughness fits the Aggies high-flying attack to perfection. The only thing holding Speedy's numbers back are the other wideouts on the roster.

De'Runnya Wilson — Mississippi State Bulldogs
2014 stats: 47 catches, 680 yards, 9 touchdowns A former basketball player with no football experience, Wilson has developed into Dak Prescott's favorite target in Starkville. Wilson is a nightmare draw for defenses, as no corner can match up with his size, and safeties aren't fast enough to keep up. With another year of development and the return of Prescott, Wilson very well could lead the SEC in receptions in 2015.

Laquon Treadwell — Ole Miss Rebels
2014 stats: 48 catches, 632 yards, 5 touchdowns A quintessential No. 1 receiver, Treadwell's numbers would have been higher if not for his season-ending injury against Auburn. Laquon has hit rehab with a fury and is anticipated to make a full recovery by the beginning of fall camp. With a full season of health, look for a dramatic jump in his numbers this season.
Ricky Seals-Jones — Texas A&M Aggies
2014 stats: 49 catches, 465 yards, 4 touchdowns The second Aggies receiver to make the list, 6-foot-5 Seals-Jones has the height to tower over defenders in addition to the speed to burn them. Watch out for Ricky next season, as his play looks to become more consistent in only his second season in college.

Josh Reynolds — Texas A&M Aggies
2014 stats: 52 catches, 842 yards, 13 touchdowns The third and final Aggie on the list, Reynolds developed a rapport with Kyle Allen down the stretch, posting 309 receiving yards over Texas A&M's last four games. Reynolds finished only behind Amari Cooper in receiving touchdowns in 2014.

Demarcus Robinson — Florida Gators
2014 stats: 53 catches, 810 yards, 7 touchdowns Despite the struggles behind center, the freshman Robinson put up fantastic numbers for the Gators last season. Robinson went over 100 yards receiving on four different occasions last season and went over 200 receiving yards against Kentucky. McElwain's hire will surely pay off for Robinson in 2015.
Alton "Pig" Howard — Tennessee Volunteers
2014 stats: 54 catches, 618 yards, 1 touchdown Pig sizzled down the stretch once Joshua Dobbs was inserted into the lineup, including a 109-yard receiving performance in Dobbs' first start of the season. Howard is used just as much on sweeps and screens as he is down the field for Tennessee. Look for his numbers to jump with Dobbs starting the season at center for the Vols.

Pharoh Cooper — South Carolina Gamecocks
2014 stats: 69 catches, 1,136 yards, 9 touchdowns Perhaps the fastest player in the SEC, Cooper has been unstoppable at times. His most victimized teams,Tennessee (233 yards), Miami (170 yards), Auburn (127 yards) and Vanderbilt (114 yards), will be sure to double Pharoh in 2015. Whoever wins the Gamecocks' starting quarterback job will surely lean heavily on Cooper in 2015.
