Clayton over Martin?


My opinion - yes. But that's just my opinion. College only. Different era though. Martin was at the top of the SEC (receiving yards) when he was drafted. Clayton was a great WR, including blocking downfield, and an even better special teams player.

Just my opinion.

Wendell Davis was the best. He also had a good NFL career going until that crappy turf at Veteran's Stadium ruined both of his knees and his career.

Reed and Wendell Davis are 1 and 1A on any list of LSU receivers. Eddie Kennison, Carlos Carson, Michael Clayton follow.

Andy Hamilton had some of the best hands ever at the position.

Edit to add: Like an idiot I left Eric Martin off. He's as good as any who played at LSU.

I would put Reed #1. He was the SEC all time leading receiver (yds) when he left LSU. Virtually uncoverable in 2001 season.
2. Eric Martin
3. Wendell Davis

Where do you guys think Josh Reed stands in the ranking of LSU's receivers? Best of all time? Or pretty close to the top?


The only problem is the 1 1/2 year exposure at the position.

LSU has had, literally, 2 All American wide receievers - Wendell Davis and Josh Reed. Eric Martin might have been better, overall, than either.

Purely based on time at LSU, and looking at season and career numbers, Reed got the Biletnikoff and All American nod for 2001 season, and this remains the best season ever for an SEC WR. He has 3,001 receiving yards for a career, despite playing the position for a little over 1 1/2 years.

The Bama game (also a single game SEC record) was as fun a game to watch a single player in history. I've never, ever seen a wide receiver get so consistently open - without even a defender being in the camera shot in my life - and that includes Roy Williams (Texas WR) against us in the 2003 Cotton Bowl.

Knew two guys who played with Clayton, said he was the hardest hitter on the team and one of the nicest, said getting hit by him was like getting hit by a truck

When he was still at Christian Life, other teams in the district stopped returning punts against them - they were afraid Clayton would end up killing someone.

Reed was LSU's most productive receiver ever. He was unstoppable in college. He gets my vote if we are talking strictly LSU and college football.

Many LSU fans forget that he had more than one year worth of great production. He had over 1k yards in 2000, with sub par QB play as a whole.

Of course he the best. How many Biletnikoff winners does LSU have besides Reed?


How many finalists has LSU had?

Actually winning it is amazing, but it can depend on the competition that year.
