Default Best WR units in NFL

They just talked about this on ESPN First Take. They said Green Bay is number one, which I agree with 100%. You can't beat Jennings, Driver, Jones, Nelson, Finley.

Then they mentioned Atlanta, San Diego and Dallas.


Atlanta has White and 101-year old Tony Gonzalez, plus the unproven rookie who had the dropsies in college. And Harry Douglas.

San Diego has Vincent Jackson, who's a beast, Antonio Gates, Malcolm Floyd and Patrick Crayton. Jackson and Gates are great.

Dallas has Miles Austin, who's great, then Dez Bryant, who has potential to be great if he would grow up and become a student of the game rather than just getting by on athleticism, then Witten, but then what? Ogletree as your number 3? If your WRs only go 2 deep, I don't consider that a top "unit."


Who are your top 3 or top 5 WR units in the NFL?

The Steelers have a slept on receiving unit. Ward, Wallace, Sanders, Cotchery, and Antonio Brown.

Roddy White was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning and said the top two WR units in the NFL in his opinion were the Packers and the Falcons. I definitely agree with him, I'd also throw the Chargers and Steelers in as well.

Ogletree is a beast...seriously he has a ton of potential, could be a star in the NFL

I'll take the Eagles and the Cowboys WRs over the Packers.

Driver is shot, he's like Hines Ward at this stage of his career.

Outside of Jennings who is an elite WR the rest of the guys are either good but not great. If we're including tight ends then the Packers definitely have a case.

The Eagles have 3 WR's on their roster (DJax/Maclin/SS) who are better then any other WR on the Packers not named Jennings. Avant is a very good 3rd/4th WR.

The Cowboys with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant is like the new Cardinals version of Boldin/Fitz except for Dallas' guys are more explosive.

Fair enough.

Yes, but two WRs does not mean a team has the best depth/overall unit. It means they have two great starters. And prime, I'll believe that Ogletree is worth something when he actually proves that he's as good as some Cowboys fans think. And Dez still has to show he can be a professional. Cowboys fans, don't jump all over me. I know Dez can be incredibly special, but he has a lot to do.

If Baldwin wasn't a douche and picked fights with a guy whose arms are like tree trunks, the Chiefs may be up there soon: Bowe, Baldwin, Breaston, Moaeke (sp?).


If Arrelious Benn is as good as some think, and if Dezmon Briscoe continues his upward spiral, the Bucs could be in the top 5 soon with Mike Williams, Benn, Brsicoe and Winslow (and if our rookie TE Luke Stocker is indeed a Jason Witten clone).

Packers, Eagles, Colts, Patriots, and Steelers are the top five in no order. Packers or Steelers are probably last though.

I am counting TEs as part of the WR units.
