Sure, you could say this player was the beneficiary of playing in a heavy passing offense. But did you also know he was part of the second team in NCAA history to have a 5,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and 1,000-yard receiver?

No. 11 Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii

It is hard to turn your nose up at these stats, no matter what you think of the Hawaii offense. Salas emerged as one of the most dependable receivers in the nation the last several seasons. In 2010, he ranked No. 1 in the country in receiving yards with 1,889 -- good enough to set the school single-season record. He also ranked No. 2 in receiving yards per game with 134.93 and No. 3 in receptions per game with 8.5. In addition, Salas broke Davone Bess’ single-season record for receptions with 119. Oh, and he also became the school’s all-time leading receiver. Salas was never flashy, but he was always there. Just look at what he did in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl. As his teammates struggled all around him, Salas kept playing and was the most consistent player in the game. He ended up with 214 yards receiving as the Warriors desperately tried to come back. Salas is gone in 2011, so we’ll see whether his replacement will be able to put up the same type of season.
