The 2011 watch list for the Biletnikoff Award has a definite Arkansas feel to it.
The Hogs placed four receivers on the preseason list, which lists 75 players as candidates for college football's top award for a wide receiver. Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon won the 2010 award and is once again on the 2011 watch list.
The Hogs led the way nationally with four receivers on the list, but Alabama had three, including junior college transfer Duron Carter, who's hopeful of enrolling this week in the second session of summer school. Seniors Marquis Maze and Darius Hanks also made the list from Alabama.
The SEC had 12 players to make the cut, which was more than any other conference in the country.
Here's a complete list of the SEC players:
Joe Adams, Arkansas
Emory Blake, Auburn
Chad Bumphis, Mississippi State
Duron Carter, Alabama
Greg Childs, Arkansas
Cobi Hamilton, Arkansas
Darius Hanks, Alabama
Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina
Tavarres King, Georgia
Marquis Maze, Alabama
Rueben Randle, LSU
Jarius Wright, Arkansas
The five SEC guys not on the list that I think have a good chance to play their way onto it this season are Auburn's Trovon Reed, LSU's Russell Shepard, Florida's Deonte Thompson and the Tennessee duo of Justin Hunter and Da'Rick Rogers.
