Default Is Julio Jones one of the most talented and gifted recievers of all-time?

I got Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, and Julio Jones in terms of the combination of physical size, talent, and ability

I know a lot will say Jerry Rice, but I'm talking about outside the numbers

Thoughts?

I've barely watched the guy play but two of the sideline catches he made last night made my jaw drop. He's got the speed, the footwork, the hands and the brains.

Why would anyone say Jerry Rice?

He was not a physical specimen in any sense of the word except for conditioning.

Just clearing up the context of this thread. I debated this with people last night and everyone was throwing out Jerry Rice's name

People throw his name out in football conversations because he's one of the ones that is easily recalled as "Oh, I heard he was good at the football thing once!"

I think he only made 3 catches and they were all unbelievable... but his stupid brain fart of a team cost him the SB.

I'm going with the white boys that New England has.

They all have IQ, high motor, deceptive speed and all are students of the game

It has to be Vikings Moss.

He got behind cover 2 easily at times. I don't know what he ran in a 40, but his game speed was as good or better than any WR I've ever seen.

He made NFL DB's look like they were High School scrubs trying to defend an All-State WR.
