The SEC is the unquestioned top conference in college football, at least until someone knocks them off their perch.
So to be one of the top receivers in the best college football conference in America is no small matter. The Green Bay Packers added two of them this year.
According to a recently released set of numbers from STATS dubbed “clutch catches,” the Packers added two of the SEC’s top seven receivers in that category from last season, including the top overall, in Randall Cobb and D.J. Williams.
Clutch catches are defined as any reception on third and fourth down that results in a touchdown or first down.
