Boston College's Bobby Swigert On 2011 Biletnikoff Award Preseason Watch List

Preseason college football watch list week rolls on with the unveiling of the 2011 Biletnikoff Award watch list, which identifies 75 of the nation's top wide receivers. 

Boston College's Bobby Swigert is one of them.

Swigert had 39 receptions for 504 yards and four touchdowns in his freshman campaign, all team highs in 2010. But is he the best receiver on the team? 

You could certainly make the case that Swigert is and I wouldn't argue with you. But really, any of Colin Larmond Jr., Alex Amidon, Clyde Lee or Johnathan Coleman could be considered the best at wide out on the roster. It's hard to say who will lead the Eagles in 2011 given Larmond Jr. returns, Rettig will continue to improve and the fact that BC will be playing with an OC who can stay awake for four quarters.

More than many other positions, projecting who will have the best year at WR seems to be a bit of a crapshoot. That's the only real explanation for the inclusion of UConn's Michael Smith on this year's watch list, who is academically ineligible to play in 2011. Then again, I suppose that's why the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation includes 75 players on the preseason watch list.
