The Biletnikoff trophy weighs 56 pounds, has won several national awards for design excellence and is the largest of all of the college football position awards. But something tells us these guys can handle it. Previous winners of the award that honors the best wide receiver include Justin Blackmon (2011 and 2010), Golden Tate (2009), Michael Crabtree (2008 and 2007), Calvin Johnson (2006), Mike Hass (2005), Braylon Edwards (2004) and Larry Fitzgerald (2003).

The Biletnikoff Award Nominees
Stedman Bailey: When Bailey racked up a school-record 303 receiving yards and five touchdowns against Baylor, he was just getting started. The junior topped the 1,000-yard mark for the second consecutive season, becoming the first West Virginia WR to do so. His 20 receiving TDs are five more than any FBS receiver, and he ranks in the top five in both receptions (88) and yards (1,260).
Marqise Lee:The nation's leader in receptions and receiving yards has set records just about every time out this season. His 1,605 receiving yards are the most in USC history. He has a USC-record eight career games with 10-plus receptions, including seven this season. He also set Pac-12 records for receiving yards in a game (345 at Arizona) and kickoff return yards in a game (251 vs. Oregon).
Terrance Williams: Williams has racked up an FBS-best 151.8 receiving yards per game, and his 18.5 yards per reception is best among receivers with at least 50 catches. He's found the end zone 11 times this season, including a four-game streak in which he scored twice in each game. The senior from Dallas has posted at least 84 yards in each of Baylor's games this season, and his 22-yard touchdown helped the Bears upset then-No. 1 Kansas State.
