With stars like USC's Dwayne Jarrett, Ohio State's Ted Ginn Jr., Notre Dame's Jeff Samardzija and Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson returning to terrorize defensive backs, wide receivers will shine in 2006. Here are the preseason rankings for the nation's top returning wide receivers.

1. Dwayne Jarrett, USC, JR, 6-4, 210
Without Matt Leinart at the helm and Reggie Bush drawing attention, it's unreasonable to expect Jarrett to match his 2005 production (91 catches, 1,274 yards and 16 touchdowns). Regardless, no receiver in college football boasts Jarrett's combination of elite physical tools and dynamic playmaking ability.
