Daniel Williams, Jackson State
Williams emerged as the most reliable target for QB La Montiez Ivy in Jackson last year as he finished with 73 receptions for 1,004 yards and 9 touchdowns. He posed a threat to defensive backfields across the SWAC with his combination of size, speed, and ability to make big plays.
Willie Quinn, Southern
Quinn has been among the most explosive players in all the FCS since he began his career at Southern. The 5’5 speedster is no longer surprising opponents on the field as he’s consistently a threat to any defense he lines up against. Quinn finished 2014 with 62 receptions, 892 yards, and 5 touchdowns.
Jordan Payne, Alcorn State
Payne finished 2014 with 25 receptions, 463 yards, and 5 touchdowns. His stats may not be all that impressive, but given Alcorn’s offensive system and bevy of talent, Payne is one of the most talented receivers in the SWAC. Although listed as a tight end, he was selected as a second-team BSN All-American.
Willie Young, Arkansas Pine-Bluff
After missing 2013 due to academic reasons, Young proved to be a talented receiver for UAPB in 2014. He caught 45 passes for 727 yards and 9 touchdowns, earning him All-Conference second team honors this past season.
Chester Rogers, Grambling State
Rogers became an offensive weapon for the Grambling team that shocked the conference by coming one game short of a SWAC championship appearance. He finished the season with 53 catches, 712 yards, and 4 touchdowns and was one of several dependable weapons that Jonathan Williams can count on.
