Torrey Smith | WR | Maryland
Speaking of wide receivers, no one performed any better than Maryland's 6-foot, 200-pound junior, Torrey Smith. In the Terps' 38-31 win over NC State, he had 14 catches for 224 yards and 4 touchdowns. As a redshirt freshman, the attention-getter was his 25.9 yard kick return average. He actually set the ACC record for a single season with 1,089 kick return yards overall. Also capable of making a contribution in the passing game, he finished with 24 catches for a 14.0 yard average. Elevated to the role of feature wideout the following year, his reception total increased to 61. His 2,192 all-purpose yards was the second-best mark in ACC history. Along with possessing good size and excellent speed, Smith is also very strong. His 355-pound power clean is the top mark in school history by a wideout and his 550-pound squat is second in school history by a wideout. And he has the receiving skills to match (65 catches for a 16.1 yard average and 12 touchdowns this season). While the likes of A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Jon Baldwin, Michael Floyd, Ryan Broyles and others garner most of the attention in the junior class, Smith has developed into a heck of a football player in his own right.

3. Maryland WR Torrey Smith
As far as single-game performances go, it's hard to find many that are better than Smith's versus N.C. State. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder hauled in 14 passes for 224 yards and four scores in Maryland's 38-31 win over the Wolfpack, and Smith's speed and vertical playmaking skills were on display. The junior has developed as a route-runner and he's showing more focus as a pass-catcher, and NFL scouts are now beginning to peek at Smith's tape in case he elects to leave school after this season.
