Who are the standout names on Mississippi State football’s Mount Rushmore of wide receivers?

During the offseason, we’re compiling Mississippi State football’s “Mount Rushmores.” We’ve already highlighted the top quarterbacks and running backs. Now, it’s time to spotlight the standout wide receivers who have left their mark at Mississippi State.

Eric Moulds (1993-1995) stands out as the premier receiving talent in Bulldogs history, blending size, speed, and dominant athleticism. He made an impact from his freshman year, culminating in becoming a 1st-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 1996 NFL Draft after a stellar college career.

Chad Bumphis (2009-2012), now the team’s WR coach, played a pivotal role in the Bulldogs’ resurgence under Dan Mullen. A top recruit, Bumphis led the team in receiving as a freshman and set school records with 24 career receiving touchdowns and second place in career yards.

Mardye McDole (1977-1980) was Mississippi State’s first 1,000-yard receiver, earning All-SEC honors in 1978. Despite a shift in offensive strategy, McDole ranks third in career receiving yards for MSU.

Fred Ross (2013-2016) emerged during one of the program’s most prolific offensive eras. He holds MSU’s career receiving record with 2,538 yards and shares second place in career touchdowns, earning 1st Team All-SEC honors in consecutive years.
