I was thinking about this. Last year they had 2 first round picks in Dwayne Bowe and Craig Davis. This year Early Doucet is sure to go in the first. But LSU has a history of putting out quality WRs in the league. These are just some names that come to mind.

Early Doucet
Dwayne Bowe
Craig Davis
Bennie Brazzell
Abram Booty
Demetrius Byrd
Michael Clayton
Wendell Davis
Skylar Green
Devery Henderson
Eddie Kennison
Eric Martin
Josh Reed

I just want to know how you guy's feel..

I would like to see more of them produce in the NFL before donning them with that title but that is an interesting observation.

They may have all been drafted, but which ones are really producing?

Yeah, I know what you mean. But it seems that LSU is producing quality receivers with size, good speed and hands. In that department the rich got richer when Terrence Toliver committed. They also goat a boat load of quality receivers in the fold right now.

You can take Demetrius Byrd off the list he is in his first year at LSU and hasn't been drafted.

Keep your eyes on Craig Davis.

Production wise in the NFL, OSU is clearly above LSU when it comes to WR's. Its funny because most WR's wont come to OSU because "we dont throw the ball much", but for some reason they allways send first round talent into the NFL. Just about every WR listed from OSU was a first RD draft pick and most of them were from the last 10 years.

But IMO Miami Florida is the WR U.

Drew Carter for the Panthers is also from OSU and didnt have a bad year considering he almost didnt get drafted etc. But hes one of the fastest WR's in the NFL over 6'4.

There have been others such as Reggie Germany, but they never made names for themselves like the others. Wasnt Jeff Green from OSU? And another guy names Sanders? Dee Miller was in the pros for alittle bit.

have all produced or have potential from UM. Also if you include TE's, we also have

They might not be the best, but they should be among the top 10.

i really don't think we can call one place a "position u" but we certaintly can say that certain schools produce more talent than other schools on a consistent basis. and i'm talking about producing in the nfl, not just getting drafted and playing special teams

Eh, Miami's list is nice but only Irvin falls under the hall of famer or future hall of famer category so far. LSU's list is just average, they've had some nice WRs, but none of those guys are even decent pros yet except Kenninson. USC is probably 2nd to OSU in terms of great WR production.

Well of course Miami and tOSU are up there. But, LSU isn't really known for producing WRs. They've slowly and secretly become a little WR U.

LSU produces alot of NFL talent. It's not all elite talent of course, but (and I haven't looked since last year) they were 4th in the NFL with total number of active players on rosters in 2005. Some schools have a reputation for producing talent but when you actually count the rosters, they don't.

Other schools like LSU fly under the radar for the most part on the amount of actual talent they produce.

Now that is funny!!!!
OSU has had the best NFL productioon out of their WR hands down.

You shouldn't laugh because it is partially true. I wouldn't say HoF, but Andre Johnson is one of the leagues more underrated WR. He is not able to produce at the level he could be due to a QB who never had an effective o-line, constant double teams by defensive coordinators, and no running game to balance with the passing game. Andre Johnson is a bonafide #1 receiver, he just needs a change of scenery.

Despite everything Andre led the league in receptions with 103 last year. He really is the complete package when it comes a WR in terms of size, hands, leaping ability. Imagine him opposite a smaller, lightning fast WR [Lee Evans, Steve Smith]. Yikes!

1. USC - they may not always have the most succesful but they constantly churn people out.
2. Miami U - produce the best TE's and bring speedy, determined Wideouts to the NFL.
3. Ohio State - Bring out some freakish players, and this past year only proved it more (besides Gonzalez who is simply a slot wideout).

LSU brings out guys but they dont always produce to the fullest

Isn't this contradicting? You put USC at #1 but say they AREN'T successful but churn guys out and turn around and say LSU brings guys out but don't produce?

I didn't say that.. Don't get it twisted. Listen to what I just said.. He said USC puts guys out but they don't really produce and at the same time leaves LSU off the list for the exact same reason. Before you start becoming a sarcastic smart ass read the post.

Eric Martin holds several Saints receiving records. He ranks first in receptions with 532, first in touchdowns with 48, and first receiving yards with 7,854. He ranks second behind Joe Horn with most 100-yard receiving games with 18.

NFL Career Stats

* 153 Games

* 553 Receptions

* 8,161 Yards

* 14.8 Avg.

* 49 Touchdowns





Oh and keep your eyes on Devery Henderson this season, after all he did lead the whole league in avg yards per catch.
