2018 Biletnikoff Award

COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S MOST OUTSTANDING RECEIVER

The Biletnikoff Award annually recognizes the outstanding FBS receiver in college football. Any player, regardless of position (wide receiver, tight end, slot back, and running back) who catches a pass is eligible for the award. As such, the Biletnikoff Award recognizes college football’s outstanding receiver, not merely college football’s outstanding wide receiver.

THIS YEARS WINNER…

JERRY JEUDY, WR, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE

Jeudy was simply the best wide receiver in the nation.

Sophomore wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is the Crimson Tide’s leading receiver with 1,176 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has caught 63 passes, each of those going for an average of 18.6 yards. His longest reception went for 81-yards.

The 6-foot-1, 192-pound Florida native is averaging 84.8 receiving yards per game. He broke 100 yards in four of Alabama’s 13 games, with a season-high 147 yards versus Missouri. He had 136 against Ole Miss, 135 against Arkansas and 103 against LSU.

LSU defensive back Greedy Williams could only compare covering Jeudy to covering former Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who was the Atlanta Falcons’ first-round draft pick earlier this year.

“He’s jukey,” Williams said. “He’s one of those guys that can juke left, right and forward. He’s analog. They call him analog. He’s a different kind of guy when it comes to that style of play.”

Said Georgia defensive back DeAndre Baker of Jeudy: “Guys like that, you can’t really shut them down. You got to just slow them down.”

The only other Alabama player to have even won the honor is Amari Cooper, and he did so back in 2014.

ALABAMA | SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Coach: Nick Saban

Alabama Players to watch:

**Sophomore NT Quinnen Williams (6-4/297)

Williams dominated everyone, all year long. In short, he was a beast.
Photo: Alabama Athletics

Williams earned unanimous honors with his selection by the AFCA, TSN, FWAA, AP, and Walter Camp and was a First Team All-SEC honoree. The redshirt sophomore took home the Outland Trophy on Dec. 6, in recognition of his breakout season in his first year as a starter. Williams leads all Tide defensive linemen with 65 tackles and paces the team in tackles for loss with 17 (-81 yards).

*Junior LT Jonah Williams (6-5/301)

Williams earned unanimous All-America honors by virtue of first-team accolades from the AFCA, The Sporting News (TSN), Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Associated Press (AP) and Walter Camp. The junior was also the winner of the SEC’s Jacobs Blocking Trophy, which is presented annually to the league’s top offensive lineman.

**Sophomore WR Jerry Jeudy (6-1/187)

Jeudy won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver this season, earning consensus All-America honors via his first-team selection by the AFCA, TSN, AP and Walter Camp. The sophomore was a First Team All-SEC selection by both AP and the league coaches. He has caught 59 passes for a team-leading 1,103 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

*Junior SS Deionte Thompson (6-2/194)

Thompson leads all Tide defensive backs and is second on team in tackles with 71 stops. He has also forced a team-high four fumbles and contributed 3.5 tackles for loss (-7 yards), two interceptions, five pass breakups and a fumble recovery this season.

OKLAHOMA | BIG 12 CONFERENCE

Coach: Lincoln Riley

Oklahoma Players to watch:

*Junior WR Marquise Brown (5-10/165)

Brown was named an AP All-American in 2018.
Photo: Santa Clarita Valley Signal

Brown caught 75 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. The Sooner speedster posted six 100-yard receiving games in 2018 and averaged 17.6 yards per catch. He has been rehabbing a lower-leg injury he suffered in the Big 12 Championship game. He was carted off the sidelines in the fourth quarter before returning with a boot on his left leg.  HC Lincoln Riley said recently that he is hopeful that Brown will play in the Orange Bowl.

Senior RG Dru Samia (6-5/297)

RG Dru Samia claimed OU’s third straight Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year honor. The senior right guard has started 46 games, just four shy of the OU record at 50. Oklahoma won the Joe Moore Award, given to the team with the best offensive line in the country.

Senior LG Ben Powers (6-4/315)

LG Ben Powers was named an Outland Trophy Semi-finalist this year. The Sooners are on a pace to set a new NCAA record for offensive yards per play. OU is averaging 8.7 yards per play through 13 games.

*Junior RT Cody Ford (6-3/343)

Ford started 20 games with his first full season as a starter coming this year after he moved to tackle. Ford is expected to be a first-round pick in some circles (should he declare) and is expected to play guard in the NFL.  Anchored by this incredible O-line, the Sooners lead the country in points per game (49.5) and yards per contest this season (577.9) despite ranking tied for 107th out of 130 teams in plays per game (just 66.1).
