Ryan Kenneth Yarborough (born April 26, 1971 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a former professional American football wide receiver who was selected by the New York Jets in the second round (41st overall) of the 1994 NFL Draft. Yarbourough played collegiately at the University of Wyoming and is considered one of the most prolific receivers in college football history.

A two-time All-American, he held the NCAA record in career games with a touchdown reception with 27 (since broken by Jarett Dillard). He finished his career at Wyoming with 229 receptions for 4,357 yards and 42 touchdowns.
