Randy Moss, Reggie Wayne, and Others: Top 10 Wide Receivers to Watch in 2008

Carter JohnsonContributor IMay 18, 2008

Here are my Top 10 Wide Receivers:

1) Randy Moss

2) Reggie Wayne

3) Larry Fitzgerald

4) Terrell Owens

5) Braylon Edwards

6) Wes Welker

7) Plaxico Burress

8) Marques Colston

9) Chad Johnson

10) Steve Smith

Randy Moss is the best receiver in the league as of now. Breaking the touchdown record put him over the stellar Wayne. Moss's ability to make the difficult catch in double coverage also puts him over. He did seem to be in a slump during his tenure as a Raider, but has shown up again. Look for another good season next year.

Reggie Wayne broke out last year with the absence of Marvin Harrison, and now it's his time to shine in Indianapolis. He led the league in receiving last year with 1,510 yards. With Peyton Manning throwing him the ball, he will always excel.

Larry Fitzgerald is a great playmaker. The play he made in the end zone at the end of the half against the 49ers last year was terrific. He has incredible jumping ability and great body control. Now that Matt Leinart is becoming a good quarterback, Fitzgerald will only get better.

Terrell Owens is a great player, no matter how much I hate him. He has the ability to separate from opposing DBs, and make incredible catches. Romo is also becoming a great quarterback, and the Cowboys have a great team to back Owens up.

Braylon Edwards is my favorite receiver to watch. He can almost catch any pass thrown to him. He is quick and deceptive, and that is what I like in a receiver. Look for him to continue to make spectacular catches, one right after another.

Wes Welker is so quick and agile, he deserves to be in the Top 10. With defenses doubling Moss so often, Welker is left open on short routes all the time. Tom Brady is so accurate that he can sneak a pass to Welker at any time.

Marques Colston and Plaxico Burress are both big strong receivers that are threats in the end zone. I give Colston the edge over Burress, because he has a more consistent quarterback throwing to him in Drew Brees.

As I have said in the past, this is only my opinion and I really want to know what you all think.
