In today's pass-happy NFL, it's important to have a number of solid receivers, as evidenced by the two participants in Super Bowl XLVIII. While the Broncos had a more ballyhooed corps of Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Decker, the Seahawks had Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Percy Harvin.
Fortunately for NFL teams, there are a number of options to choose from. Whether you're looking for a receiver with size (Kenny Britt), speed (Tate), someone to operate out of the slot (Julian Edelman) or a boom-or-bust talent (Hakeem Nicks), there's something for everyone.
