Touch one here. Percy is número uno. We've never had a talent as dynamic as him before or after his stay. Gonna have to think about 2-5. Be back later.
Reche Caldwell and Chad Jackson were pretty dang good too. I believe Chad Jackson holds the single season reception record from back in 05. Taylor Jacobs was another who was very good.
Can you imagine if Gaffney and Caldwell had stayed around. Gaffney had two years left and Caldwell still had one. The trio's of Gaffney/Caldwell/Jacobs is close to Anthony/Green/Hilliard.
My favorite is Hilliard. I remember him playing with a dislocated shoulder in the FSU game we lost in Tally in 96. He was a tough SOB. Actually caught a late TD pass in that game.
Anthony was another that left a year early. Several of these guys would have had much better numbers had they stayed.
We've had some good ones, no doubt.

Wes Sandy Chandler was Percy before there was Percy.
1. A. Caldwell
2. P. Harvin
3. C. Alverez
4. W. Jackson
5. D. Baker
Don't mention Chad Jackson around Franz, Franz thinks he was a jerkoff at UF
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
You can't go purely by numbers for the wideouts, considering how wide open the Florida offense was from 1990 onward compared to the prior years.
For tight ends.
Billy the Kid, age 48,
5 SEC Championships,
2 National Championships...
i def would of thought reche had a better career then andre
And that's a first down!
Sorry guys -it is impossible to leave Wes Chandler off of a list of the top five. Far better than Casey or Doering. Chandler could simply take over a game by himself.
