Premier wide receivers are in high demand in today's pass-happy NFL. The fact that the New York Giants were able to rely on stud receiving trio Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham to win Super Bowl 46, has only increased this demand.
There are some big names to choose from at the wideout position in the 2012 free agent class.
Diminutive New England Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker is joined by the likes of San Diego Chargers deep threat Vincent Jackson and New Orleans Saints all-rounder Marques Colston as the elite names on offer.
But there are also young up-and-comers looking to make their way and establish themselves amongst the upper echelons of the league's pass catchers. Players like Manningham and Buffalo Bills speedster Stevie Johnson headline the second tier of available flankers.
Here is a ranking of the top 10 wide receivers available on the 2012 NFL free-agency market.
