For the last decade I'm including the years 1998-2007.

1. Larry Fitzgerald - Most dominant WR of the last ten years despite mediocre talent around him.

2. Peter Warrick - Most electrifying player I have ever seen, played on some great FSU teams.

3. Charles Rogers - 135 catches for 2,821 yards (20.9 avg!) and 27 TDs in only 24 games at MSU. Looked like the next Randy Moss during college.

4. Braylon Edwards - 3 straight years of 1000 yards receiving and a Biletnikoff recipient.

5. Mike Williams - A pro bust but a terrific college player with 2579 receiving yards and 30 TDs after only playing his freshman and sophomore years.

6. Calvin Johnson - All-ACC as a freshman, All-American as a sophomore and Biletnikoff winner as a junior. Managed to take over games despite the inferior team that surrounded him.

7. Josh Reed - Made the switch from RB after freshman year and never looked back. 1127 yards and 10 TDs as a soph, 94 catches for 1740 yards as a junior when he won the Biletnikoff. Most productive SEC WR I have ever seen.

8. Troy Edwards - Edwards was a Sr in 1998 and had a ridiculous 140 catches for 1996 yards and 27 TDs albeit at Louisiana Tech.

9. Torry Holt - Holt barely sneaks onto this list because he was also a senior in 1998. But his 88 catches for 1604 yards and 16 TDs makes him a deserving canidate.

10. Michael Crabtree - If Holt and Edwards can make this list off just one season during the last ten years then Crabtree should be on it as well after his fantastic freshman year.

I find your lack of Mike Hass disturbing.

Josh Reed was insane. Totally insane.

I can still see that crazy catch he made in the Peach Bowl in 2001 to beat Georgia Tech..he was completely parallel to the ground and somehow managed to get a foot down in the back of the endzone..I still don't know how he did that.

Charles Rogers was the best.

His catch against Notre Dame is reason enough. He was the most explosive player in the NCAA and if hadnt let it get to his head he would be one of the most dominant in the NFL. Damn weed.

I think that you have Mike Williams far too high. He wasn't the best WR that USC had during that run, and he certainly wasn't the best WR in the Pac 10 during that duration.

Mike Williams was ******* gross at USC. 30 TD in 2 years is unbelievable.

As much as it pains me to say it, Rogers was outstanding.

But Braylon is the greatest! I can't help but giggle when I watch highlights of the '04 MSU game

I definitely can't argue with Fitz. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the title of the thread.

Hass belongs ahead of Holt, Crabtree, and T. Edwards, at least. Nearly 4000 career receiving yards in the Pac-10.

*well maybe not over T. Edwards, he had a ridiculous career.

Darius Watts and Rashaun Woods had tremendous careers.

4031 yds/47 TD's and 4414 yds/42 TD's, respectively

Between 2002-2003? Williams was without a doubt the best USC WR between that span and he was also the best Pac-10 WR betwen that duration unless you think that Hass's production of 0 catches in 2002 and 1013 yds and 7 TDs in 2003 somehow compares to the more than 2500 receiving yards and 30 TDS that Williams put up during those two years.

True their career numbers are very impressive but they never dominated their peers in a single season like some other guys on the list. They both benefited by playing until their senior seasons in college while most of the guys on the list did not stay for their senior seasons. Watts and Woods (and Roy Williams) did have better long term careers in college but if you judge the better college WRs by how dominant they were during their prime then most of the guys on the guys on the list made more of an impact.

The best example of my ranking logic would be that if Michael Crabtree has another fantastic season next year and people said that he is the best college WR over the last 3 years, I would agree. Then other people replied that Jaret Dillard was the best WR over the past 3 years because his stats over three years were better, i would disagree. I would argue that Crabtree was a more dominant receiver and a better college player than Dillard.

To say that Hass belongs in front of Holt and Crabtree is fair.

Crabtree was more of a prediction for me because I think he will shatter many records next year and in hindsight it will be crazy to pass over Crabtree for just about anybody else in a top 10 WR list.

Hass might have the edge on Holt because he had a better sophomore season and slightly better career numbers. However, Holt had the better senior season was much more of a TD scorer during both his junior and senior seasons.

I was refering to the last ten years, you know, like in the topic title. Not the two years Williams played.

Alright then, over the past 10 years who at USC was a better than WR than Williams? Steve Smith? Keary Colbert? Dwayne Jarrett? I'd really like to see your reasoning.

Mike Williams definitely deserves to be on there, he was flat out dominant for 2 years. He basically made every corner look like his little ***** boy. Too bad he blows now.

He wasn't that dominant because of poor QB play.

Randy Moss' last college season was 1997

Fitzgerald was fantastic during his career at Pitt. Made a lot of big plays to help his team stay in the game or win the game. You could always count on a TD from him during that stretch.

But with Fitz looking at everyone from the mountaintop, you have to move Mike Williams up to a close second, or no worse than third. The way Williams tore through the defenses was unfair. Not many WRs put fear into the hearts of DBs the way Williams did when the Trojans got within 25 of the endzone. And 30 TDs can't be dismissed.

Last played with Grand Rapids Rampage of the AFL. He was released in April of 2007. No news on him since.
