Larry Fitzgerald is the best wide receiver in the NFL, and he's only 25. This guy has it all. Size (6'3, 220 lbs) strength, speed, and some of the best hands in the league.
He has an incredible nose for the ball, and seems to consume anything thrown even near him. Larry lead the league in touchdowns last year with 12, was 4th in receptions with 96, and second in yards with 1431.
The one thing that really puts him above everyone else on this list is his ability to play amazing in the spotlight, when everything is on the line. Fitzgerald set a single postseason record with 546 receiving yards, 30 receptions, and 7 touchdown receptions.
He also tied an NFL playoff record with three touchdown receptions and became the first player in NFL history to have three receiving touchdowns in the first have of a conference championship game. He followed that up with two touchdowns in the Super Bowl.
After the Pro Bowl was over it was revealed that Fitzgerald had been playing at least the whole postseason with a broken left thumb as well as torn cartilage in the same hand.
This guy is just flat out amazing. Anyone who watched Larry in the playoffs saw a calm, composed receiver who took what the defense gave him and waited for a mistake, often turning them into points.
He is in my mind easily the best wide receiver in the NFL, and at the tender age of 25. He will be a joy to watch ascend the record books and carve out a legacy worthy of some of the greatest.
