Rashaun Woods, 2000-03

Woods ranks first in school history in every major wide receiver category with 293 career receptions, 4,414 yards and 42 touchdowns. He was a two-time All-American and a three-time All-Big 12 selection. And he made arguably the greatest catch in OSU history when he snagged the game-winning touchdown in the Cowboys' 16-13 victory at Oklahoma in 2001.

Dez Bryant, 2007-09

What could have been? After a monster 2008 season, where he tallied 87 receptions, 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns, was a consensus All-American and finished second in voting for the Biletnikoff Award, Bryant was declared ineligible early in the 2009 season. Still, Bryant ranks fifth in OSU history in career catches (147), receiving yards (2,425) and touchdowns (29).

Justin Blackmon, 2009-11

Blackmon will not top any career lists if he leaves Stillwater after this season, but his back-to-back Biletnikoff Awards show that he's been the most dominant wide receiver in college football the past two seasons while playing in OSU's potent spread offense. His 2010 totals of 111 catches, 1,782 yards and 20 touchdowns all set OSU single-season marks, and he surpassed his own record with 113 catches so far this season. He currently ranks second in school history in catches (244), receiving yards (3,378) and touchdowns (37) and became a two-time unanimous All-American earlier this month.
