Top 5 NFL Wide Receivers Entering 2016


 

Note: This list is who is the best wide receiver right now.  Past accolades and accomplishments alone will not move you higher on the list.  This list is based on skill, talent, age, and the ability to perform.

Honorable Mentions: 

Mike Evans (Buccaneers), AJ Green (Bengals), Jordy Nelson (Packers)

5) O’Dell Beckham Jr., Giants

O’Dell Beckham Jr. might be the most gifted receiver in the NFL since Randy Moss.  His ability to light up the hi light reel is second to none.  Once he continues to put in more work he will climb this list. 

4) DeAndre Hopkins, Texans

After the departure of Andre Johnson, the potential of DeAndre Hopkins blossomed despite having mediocre quarterback play from Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett. The addition of Brock Osweiler will help elevate him to the next level.

3) Dez Bryant, Cowboys

Dez Bryant has been an elite receiver in this league since the first day he walked on the field.  When he was younger immaturity got in the way of his true potential.  He has matured as he aged to  become rguably the best wide receiver. The Dallas Cowboys are in win now more so I’m curious to see if Dez will take his game to yet another level.

2) Julio Jones, Falcons

Julio Jones, like Dez Bryant, has been in the elite category since his first day. Not only is Jones the quintessential deep threat, he also has the ability to burn you on a 5 yard slant pattern.  Other defenses know this and he is consistently double teamed.  That doesn’t stop Julio from making an impact on every game he is in.

1) Antonio Brown, Steelers

Antonio Brown is not the fastest, strongest, or the quickest person on my list. He also is under 6 feet tall.  That didn’t stop him from topping my list.  How? His work ethic is legendary. His route running and hands are flawless. His speed, acceleration, and agility is deceivingly underrated. That combined with a very high football IQ made him an easy decision.

JGOOD.
