B/R NFL 1,000 2013: Top 100 Wide Receivers

We all know who the best wide receiver in the NFL was during the 2012 season—Mr. Calvin Johnson holds that honor—but who was second best?

The NFL is loaded with talented wide receivers today, which is why we set out to rank the top 100 players at the position.

As with all the positions in this year's position-by-position rankings, we are scoring criteria at different weights, but they always add up to a maximum of 100. Players in this case can receive up to 50 points for hands, 30 for route-running ability and 20 for speed.

Our scouting team reviewed film from the 2012 season of more than 150 wide receivers to come up with the top 100 players. The rankings are based on the players’ 2012 performance, with no credit received for career achievements or potential.

Players who played fewer than 150 snaps at wide receiver last season didn't qualify for the rankings.

In the case of a tie, we broke it based on which receiver we'd rather have on our team right now.
